April 2017 Bike of the month
« on: May 03, 2017, 08:09:14 PM »
A few years back I was working in England and managed to get my VFR up to Wales twice before I had to ship out again. Wales is great riding and stunning scenery. Sadly I missed this months winner by a week or two, To bad as I would have loved to see it in person.



Congratulations Rich (cakeman) your VF750F is Aprils Bike of the Month.

Thanks guys....... The bike has changed a little since the last time I posted, she now sports the front forks and wheel from a 92 GSX750f and a back wheel to match (mainly for better tyre choice) and around Christmas I picked up a complete VF1000fe cheap which I did consider restoring but instead I've decided to fit the engine to the 750.......I did think about putting a vfr750 engine into the old girl as the RC24 lumps are cheap and plentiful here but although easy enough to fit into the frame the output shaft is a lot higher than the RC15 and could have caused chain run problems so the 1000 engine gets the thumbs up.

Nice bike and congratulations. This is another bike I haven't ridden yet. I'd like to see a pic of the newly installed parts when you get a chance.  :thumb :beer: :thumb
