White love...

Recommended Posts

The first owner likes his bikes white, so this one was repainted from new (I heard he did the same on his 6th gen)

You can always store your SP2 in my garage m8. 

 

I may even give you a spare key! :wink:

That's why you need this kind of white VFR!

That Fifth looks great in white.

It's about time you got an example of the best generation Dutchy.

Do it!

Trust me... if Honda had thought to sell the VFR800X in the US, I would have considered it! I don't know what it costs to bring a specific model of bike to the US, but it can't be that much in comparison to what it costs to develop the bike in the first place!

Got 1st dibs this white 2000 5th gen with 90,000km on her.

Stood idle/outside under a cover for 2 years. and yes, we do get wet and cold winters...

 

Connected a fresh battery and she fired right up and set in a steady idle.  But then...

 

 

Tank lock jammed, no way to open

Front rotors 3.1mm (3.5mm service limits)

Used for commuting the past 8 years: fork lowers, calipers, pistons and bracked corroded to F...

Stanchions pitted looking like spotted dick

Tacho display not working, nor indicators

RHS exhaust heat shield looking like swiss cheese (the exhaust system in perfect nick though)

Rear spindle seized solid

Chaion a sprockets rusted beyond salvation

Bike was painted white  (from red) from new, but scaped ( as is to be expected)

Rear caliper, rotor and bracket corroded, in fact anything metal was corroded.

 

 

Asking Euro 300, I still walked away.

That's a shame, but it sounds like you'd be tearing that thing down to the frame to make it functional. I probably would have bought it and regretted it!

Offered the guy that if he washes the thing and send me pictures, I will put it up for sale on the Dutch VFR forum for him.  Pretty sure an existing 5th gen owner with sun-bleached plastics will pounce. The white rims are dent/scratch free I think... Unsure what the insie of the tank will look like. But firing up right away (and run for more that 5 minitues w/o a stutter) bodes well.

Decent parts bike though. Be a reasonable project too for 300 euro.

Euro 300

Located in the Netherlands

Contact me if you ewant the seller's details...

 

 

As I'm busy with the Gilera and donot want to invest in new brake rotors (3.1mm vs 3.5mm minimum), chain sprockets. Nor the time to clean up the metal parts and brake caliper pistons... LCD dash no worky
