May 2018 Bike of the Month
« on: June 05, 2018, 06:27:04 pm »
Well I had a look around for this months winner, and finally settled on a true ground breaking version of the V4.

This bike was the apex of sports bikes when it came out, and still turns heads today.

Congratulations Gerrie (kloppberg) your South Africa spec 83 VF750F Interceptor is May 2018's BOTM.

WOW did not see this coming, picture is a few years old.

currently looking for attention as it has blown a head gasket, rear one, so engine must come out.

Will get to it shortly.

But thanks for the reward, much appreciated. :thumb
