Been a bit slow of late as I’m waiting for my swingarm back, but heres where I’m up to…
Forks, wheels, shock, swingarm, linkages and brakes off an RSV-R. Racetech dash, New paintjob. Need to fit the swingarm, have some Gilles rearsets to fit and a yoshimura silencer then hopefully on the home straight!
That looks amazing!
Those forks and calipers give envy pangs!
Very cool. Really liking it. Great job.
Finally got the Aprilia RSV swingarm back, machined to the VF1000 spec.
Copious pictures will be required, or you’re doing wrong!
Nearly done now. Suspension finished up. Gilles rearsets still to fit then about there. She’s running again and sounding good through the 4:1 mated to the yoshi can
Can’t wait to see some pics outside. Very cool!
Fuuuuuuuuuuuuuuck. So cool. Thanks for posting. Finally get some real perspective. What is the “dash”?
Time to mow your lawn tho.
That looks fantastic, very individual, nice to see other bikes other than honda being used for mod parts, top work
Haha glad you like it. The dashpanel is a racetech dash2. Grass is fake… no point wasting spanner time on cutting lawns!
One of the 2 nicest resto-mod VFs I’ve ever seen, Well done!
How’s it ride/handle?
Thanks Walter. It’s not quite finished, need to fit the rearsets and the chain, job for the weekend then she should be about ready to go, in time for Spring! I expect it will need some tweaks to get it as I want it but pleased so far. Had a lot of help from a top chap who knows his stuff who has been an absolute star in helping make it happen.
gilles factory x rearsets now fitted and D.I.D gold chain. Hit of paint to come next
Gear linkage side done too
And finally she’s finished
Just Wow! Forks look amazing. This is one of the most beautiful 2 wheeled things I have ever seen.
