    VF1000R 4 into 2 - winter project

    Start of the summer I bought 4 VF1000R's for an exceptionally good price. One is pretty nice, just needs a carb cleaning and a few bits to put right (windshield, etc). the other 3 will be stripped and the best parts of them will go to building one nice VF1000R in the european colours.

    Heres the decent bike in the most common colour scheme before i sorted the nasty windshield and corrected the headlight surround etc


    Here are the 3 parts bikes. the black one runs and has new tires, chain and sprockets but someone went mad with a rattle can of black paint.


    2 of the parts bikes are now stripped to the frames. Frame of one has been powder coated and im ready to strip the "Black Bike" and start building the project bike.


    I have 4 sets of extra bodywork which ill need to sort out before my buddy Al paints it. I already cleaned and lined 2 of the extra (3) fuel tanks with Por15. I used muriatic acid followed by phosphoric acid to eliminate the rust. I then used the Por15 prep kit and lined the tanks. The front forks on the black bike are absolutely rigid/solid, no give in them at all, not sure whats up with that, we will see once i strip them. Previous owner had started to prep it as a track bike.

    Here's what it will look like once its finished:

    A mate had an F11 back in the day in black and silver with Lazer cans and lovely it was too.

    IIRC we replaced the sprag clutch armed only with some Woolworth spanners and chocolate screwdrivers.

    Ah the mamories.

    I got really lucky, I wanted a clean VF1000R so I posted a wanted ad. 2 guys with 2 bikes each called, all bikes with titles. I got the clean bike and the black bike off one guy, and the 2 other parts bikes off the second guy. With it all, came a brand new set of NOS Carbs, box of brand new Honda parts, and a rare 4 into one Hindle custom Race pipe (one guy used to race them and Hindle was his sponsor). Ill be able to sell off all the extra parts after im done for 50% of what i paid for it all. I also know of another bike with a spare engine for a good price too (that would allow me to build 2 more bikes if i choose). we'll see if I have the appetite for more VF1000R's.
