Suzuki Katana 1260cc Project Bike

120bhp and an 11.42 second standing quarter from our project 1260 Katana.

And it still isn't finished yet over the winter the bike was stripped to its bare bones, and then slowly rebuilt with the 1260 kit, a fully braced frame, and wheels and front suspension from a 1996 Kawasaki ZX6RF1. Each time I encountered a problem, (and there were a few to solve along the way), a solution presented itself, and I'm eternally indebted for the help and advice I got from parts suppliers, specialists, and ordinary readers who took an interest in the project and gave me invaluable tips based on their own hands-on experience. Somehow it made the bike a real team effort.
