#81

hi eliot,
welcome in, glad your still liking liking the bike after all these years, they can be a little addictive


#82

I have an F2F Bol Dor…


#83

Just registered 2.nd VF (-86 1000F2) - good reason for me to to came back into this Forum. Hope to get this bold´or into Veteran Register some day… but lets first enjoy short and beautiful summer or Finland.

Another VF1000f I´ve owned since 2006, it get´s into 30 years veteran age this year, but it needs a bit more restoration and overhaul.

Lucky to have work collegues at UK, now every time they come to visit Finland´s office I will ask them to smuggle some VF parts…


#84

I have a vf 1000 bol d’or still runs very well


#85

I have 1 x Bol D’or with 14k on it from new, that should be back on the road soon.
1 x VF750FE currently on the road and in daily use.
1 x VF400FD currently on the road and in daily use.
At some point i’ll add a 500 and magna to the mix as well no doubt.


#86

In my shed I have an almost pristine original 1985 blue/silver VF1000F. I also have another one the same which I’m building as an historic race bike. The first outing planned is a one hour race in September.
Then there’s the 1 1/2 86 F2s in pieces.
Other bikes include recently restored Ducati 851, 1971 Norton Commando 750, 2004 Honda Blackbird (in CB1100R colours), 1989 Honda RS250 GP bike, a 2011 ZX-10R superbike which my 17-year-old son races, and lastly a Honda Benley CB110.
I’ll post some pics when I get around to it.


#87

Teambif have just added another Bol Dor and another FE to the fleet.
The Bol arrived today and has had a few jobs done already,
The FE is coming by courier so I haven’t actually seen the bike in the flesh,hope the surprise is not an unpleasant one!!!


#88

hi bif,
its nice to see you back active on the forum as you were one of the founding members, i often wonder where some of the original members have disappeared to, like tinytim from sheffield, he’d rebuilt a fe to the point of painting, then just dissapeared, wonder if he ever got it finished…

anyway back to the point, how many vf’s are in team bifs fleet.


#89

Between PAJ and myself who are Teambif we have,
2 FEs
2 BolDors
1 RE
1 500 interceptor
Pete is in Germany but still does all the electronic wizardry from there
I am in Scotland and do my best to help out on the forum when I can.

I’m just about to add a 500 F11 to my collection which I’m hoping to have snuggled up in my garage by early Sept. Just bought a 2nd hand exhaust system from the US - Ouch ! Gotta be done though.

Nice addition to your stable,Martin! :wink: The next bike to reach my garage is not a VF,even not a Honda but a true second hand 1985 Suzuki 750 GSXR complete, original and in near mint condition…


#92

Just added a 94 VFR750 with 27000 km to the 2 VF1000R’s.


#93

Just added a VF500F2 to my collection now.

Just the 1100 to go, so VF400, VF500, VF750, VF1000 now.

Can’t wait to complete the set.
