UPDATE: LINK TO THE PICTURES

http://forums.sportbikes.net/forums/showthread.php?t=280381

Thats right, I found one that I liked!!!



It is a red/silver 1991 Katana 750 (California version). The paint aint stock, that bike was red with white, but the new paint is the same scheme as the stock one, with different colors...

1991 Katana 750 with 12,000 miles!!!

Chain is OK, will need tires soon and the left fork is leaking.

All for...


$3050 USD!!!

(Yes, it sucks living in a 3rd world country where bikes are expensive)


I'm so excited, hope I can sleep! I'm picking and paying for it up before I go to work, guess it is going to be an EXTREMELY LOOONG DAY!

Congratulations. Get the fork fixed. Tires at the end of the season, that is if there is an actual end to your season down there. Be sure to change the sprockets when you change the chain too, if you want the new chain to last.

About the same price here, too expensive for me at the moment!!!

The Dinamo U2 is a chinese commuter bike. The frame is identical to a Suzuki GS125, but the engine is a Honda CG125 based unit (with 150cc). The plastics and tank, however, do not look like those of a GS, it looks more like a Yamaha RXZ135, hard to explain.

Will post pictures of it tonight. I'm going to keep that bike, it has been very reliable on the 12,000 miles I've rode it daily, and nothing beats it to get around the City, gets 70 mpg and can do 60mph. That is little bike that works really hard for very little gas.


I already have the can-o-tuna 750, but haven't been able to get any pics of it as I had to go to work, so I had to leave my new baby at home :a2

Got it today at 10am, just rode it home and parked it, then jumped on the 150 to get to the office, that sucks! :(

I'm amazed by how HARD it pulls!!! On my way home I felt like if I were riding an auto, just put it on 6th gear and didn't had to downshift to pass any cars!

The stability of the bike is also amazing, however, it feels heavy and a little bit slow to manouver, but I'm sure thats because of the crappy profile of the oem - like tires.

Can't wait till tonight, I'm going to ride it on the roads I know! (But not before posting some pictures here!!!)

I had a 90' 750. It was a great bike. Better than most bikes I've ridden really. Blowing away idiots on 600 SSs at the drag strip was alot of fun. Maintainance was real easy too, not that it ever gave me problems. Only time was when it sprung an exhaust leak after some header bolts worked their way off.

Good for you. Glad to hear your hard work and patience is paying off. And be very careful. The differences in your rides will sneak up and surprise you for quite awhile I'll bet.
