The only person known to have one of the rare 'cats is RED1. But he's factory Honda and I aint a monkies asshole so I dont have the connections he has. I am red to the back teeth. Honda this and Honda that (as some of you have figured out...) So I figured I needed to get one. They were only made for 2 years!! Can you imagine a bike today being made for only 2 model runs? The cost must have been horrendous.
Since seeing RED1's cat I thought why not get one myself. So a little while ago I go I had a friend in California find me one and just now the cat is is on the big boat sailing for Australia. (FATCATS were a US only bike in the 80s) Cost me sfa = $1400 aussie, so really a steal. They were sold in the US with enormous racks (not that you injest...) so it's be great for side swiping errant MVs who try to cut me off in Melbourne traffic...
When "Le Cat" arrives I intend to get it road registered. It's got electric start and already has low seat height hi and low beam etc.
Here's some pics of my cat at the port of LA in longbeach:

So in my effort to get it registered I need to get some brake lights hooked up.
Now I have a shed load of Honda parts in the farm shed atm. Red1 would a XR600R ADR rear light setup work on the Cat?
How could I set up a rear and front brake light switch system using Honda oem parts do you think?
I'll bolt on the XR600R turn signals I have already. All I'll then need is the switch and wiring.
