Hi, All.

Second time around VF-er. My first one was a blue/silver FF, bought new in 1987. Sold due to matrimonial pressure - two mistakes in one, there, marrying her and selling the bike.

My latest is the same model, but an '85 vintage. It’s been wheels up restored, and is on its way over from Australia as I type this.

I’ll apologise in advance. I’m going to be asking some dumb questions. My memory isn’t what it was when I had one before…

The bike is standard and original, with OEM parts used on the resto job, except for braided brake hoses and paint / decals.

Thanks for allowing me to join the group. I’m looking forward to making friends with like minded enthusiasts.

VF1000. There is no substitute.
