Just a little update, I've managed to get the bike back into one piece and it's off at the painters, it's been there two weeks so shouldn't be that much longer before it's back, then I've got to rebuild the VF1000r/VTR1000 forks and re-install then and them get  it on a dyno to set it up with the exhaust and no airbox setup.

I'll get a few photo's on here as soon as I get it back!

When I lived in Japan (79 to 81) you could buy an RS850 Production Racer from HRC for 500,000.00 yen which was 240 to the dollar...

What could be better, just fitted the screen while listening to the TT practice on Manx  radio. Thought you should have a few photos.

Screen fitted but will need a little trim

Hi Trooper, can I ask about that screen? Is it from another model bike or specific to that fairing? Cheers, Don

The screen is a XR69 one, can't remember where I got it from but I'll look into it and get back to you

I've been looking and the screen came from Skidmarks in the Uk think it was £50 if my memory serves me correct (but I'm old so don't count on it)

I've got it out of the van this morning, there are still some jobs to do, like change the forks, install the screen and then set it up but here goes with a few photos, please play nice!20190907_100647.thumb.jpg.e48e8d55302c0b904d10bd23b2d78369.jpg20190907_100742.thumb.jpg.7c6e1cbbff8c7589e200db0a701e0511.jpg20190907_100726.thumb.jpg.e59019acb8c1ceeddfb6264a919eda6f.jpg20190907_100708.thumb.jpg.9a94b2a918dec0c72fc8cde03b398992.jpg

Beautiful machine. And I'll bet you do not see another like it as you putt around.

Looking very nice. Brakes look a bit ropey but that's OK, as chain is looking similar 👍😜

And doesn't it look fantastic! Great job on the fuel tank & bodywork, and the paint work looks perfect.

I thought holding the brake calipers on with tyraps (cable ties) would be the way forward for quick removal 😜, don't worry I'll post some photos when the correct forks are refitted, the guy that painted the bike has painted the VF1000R fork lowers, I have rebuilt them and am just waiting to get them fitted, but that means removing that lovely body work and I just can't stop looking at it.

Lovely.  Great work, it looks so good.  Graphics / paint is spot on.

Does that look better,  a bit more HRC?

Or do you like the VFR forks that it came back from the painters with?

I've tried to replicate the HRC magnesium chromate colour, I've had the top yoke done in the same colour.

Yeah, that will look great.  Paint or powder?
