Back in the early 90's and pre internet, I saw an advert for a Katana 750 so drove from Lowestoft to Southend to see it and it turned out to be one of these. Even the missus who doesn't really know that much about bikes, got out of the car and said "that's not a Katana!"

Glad to see 30 years later the same mistake is being made :lol:

It hasn’t got a kat fairing but it has got a few parts that might get a pop up resto back on the road…

Had an ES for years even started dispatching on it...very good machines ..it does have the basic katana lines (as all late 80'sGSX do ;) ) Good riding position and a Kat fairing fits on the fairing frame ;) but at the moment its just an ES good price though.

Did have an ‘ES’ in 1982 although a GSX250 with the new (at the time) Katana styled tankset

It's just a bog stock 750 es, a worthy machine, but not a kat, and as a 750, not really worth more than 7-8 hundred quid.
