1982 Rare Suzuki Katana 1000SZ homologation special For Sale
Something very special – a rare Suzuki Katana 1000SZ. Not the usual 1100cc Katana, but the homologation special produced in limited numbers to qualify for racing in the American Superbike Championship in the early 80s.
This bike was supplied new into the North American market in 1982 and was imported into the UK in 2015, since when it has benefitted from a £3000 professional refurbishment.
The full list of work and parts fitted runs to two pages, but includes frame and swingarm respray, swing arm bearings, steering head races, new tyres, new carb rubbers. Replacement black chrome silencers have also been fitted, as per the original specification.
Since this work was done the bike has since been kept in perfect condition by two UK collectors and has covered just 26 miles. It has nevertheless been MOT’d each year, the last time in August 2018.
It is therefore superbly presented and ready not only to collect or show, but can also be ridden in full confidence.
There are very few of these models around and at £9950, this bike is both a wonderful machine to enjoy and an excellent investment.
