Project vf1000R


just thought I would share a few pics of my ongoing project, its a vf1000r,1985 American import, I picked it up off ebay sometime back as a non runner, the bloke I bought it off was quite genuine and assumed it was a battery or electrical fault, turned out to be the usual lazy starter motor issue, ordered a new vf750f one from the states and it fires up on the button every time.
The bodywork and fairings are pretty good except the seat unit needs quite a bit of repair and some new paint, the frame and all the black bits needed repainting,






Good to see you haven’t lost your enthusiasm for a project Pete,there looks to be some interesting wheels near the door,a wheel conversion on the cards praps?
Regards Bif


Hi bif… it’s taken me a while to get motivated on this one, work this year has taken over everything and continues to do so… I think now it’s started I should be able to get into it…
Ten out of ten for observation, yes I’m planing to fit it with cbr600f3 wheels same as I had on the project ff/fe along with the modified vtr1000 front end, going to go with the same rear brake set up as on your modified R…
Hopefully I should be able to get in the garage tonight for a couple of hours and get a few more bits stuck on.
