Honda VFR750 Project Nearly Completed

Not much to do now to get my Honda VFR750 on the road. Finding decent fairing panels has been difficult and taken some time, I don't have the lower and mid panels but that won't stop me from getting it MOT'd and on the road. I'm tempted to go the half fairing route as the kit sold by Pferrer which really looks great. If I do go for the half fairing then I will have to sort something out with the coolant reservoir, but I've got an idea……
The traditional and most common colour is red but I decided at an early stage of the build to go with Lapis Blue and I'm really pleased with the result, particularly as there is a near perfect colour match between all of the components after cleaning and polishing.

I need a screen, mudguard and a few minor bits and pieces and its ready to go. It starts on the button and sounds great but theres a very slight misfire which I'm hoping will clear on running. Anyway barring any unexpected gremlins I should get a full summers riding in.


New Season - New Site Design

The old site design was looking tired and I've updated it to a fresher, modern design before the season starts. I've also added a little more detail to the my Honda VFR400 NC24 rebuild and updated the photos especially some of the front forks which are often a source of confusion as the components differ between legs. I'll be updating the progress of my other bike, a VFR750F RC36 which is coming along nicely and should be finished by spring.

Since the photograph was taken I've fitted Motad pipes, Delkavic end can with high level link, seat and tank in Lapis Blue. I'm collecting matching plastics in good condition - only the lower fairing panels needed now.


Honda RC213V-S

I forgot to post these images taken on my iPhone at the end of April. The event was the Classic Car and Bike Rally held in Church Square, Scunthorpe town centre and I thought I'd drop by for a quick look. The last thing I expected to see amongst the Morris Minors was a Honda RC213V-S!

The Brembo Brakes are the same as the MotoGP bike apart from the carbon brake discs and pads.

The level of detail is amazing - then again it should be for the price.
