  1. Can't wait for my project to be done! If I have to travel despite travel bans...Seb has my baby!
  2. Supersprox will do a fresh cut to order on the rear. Ain't cheap...but not requiring a mortgage either.
  3. I don't think so. They have big forks. Like 51 or 53mm. Sebspeed would know for certain. He is putting a GSXR600 front end on my VFR, and is using the 1200 bars because they will fit that size. Pretty sure they are bigger - and the GSXR ones are upside down.
  4. Hey! Italy has been hard hit by the Coronavirus, but I got some panels shipped to Sebspeed that he said looked good. $700 for full set. MotoXRicambi says they are fine and ready for the work. 4th gen fairings full sets . Takes a few weeks to get, but Seb liked them. Might be wotrth it
  5. Many good points. But the twins that are being offered are not awesome either. All the bikes look the same. I am riding an EX500 Ninja lately while my VFR is being rejuvenated. That is a nice little bike. The CBR500 is sweet, too. But that styling is, as my old man would say Pablum. Now if they would sell some of these over here: CB400 super4.jfif
  6. Just sad, living through the 80s, made the wrong choice initially: the Suzuki GS 700ESF. Spindly tires, and peaky power that dislodged me (my own mistakes, of course) so many times. Always wanted one of the second gen bikes. The third gen that Seb is refurbishing for me was bought new in 1990 (April 19), and went just over 100k miles before it needed an engine swap. That is one sweet bike! Can't wait to get it back on the road. But...second gen is why I bought the third gen. Which was heavier, but...just...so...gorgeous. I mean, Ducati now making the bar high...but then? The only thing nicer was the R. VFR750R.
  7. I can't find a single V4 on the Honda powersports website for USA!!! Its like a nightmare. Has anyone seen the soldiers parachuting in? Where is Jed?! Wait. Even Swayze is gone too! What kind of world...? All of this silliness and "Red Dawn" references (the *really* good one from 84, when Ronald Reagan was president, and you could buy an interceptor, or a sabre, or a magna) aside, I am actually pained by this. Truly. My baby sleeps at Seb's right now...but alas there may be no more...
  8. Hey y'all. Been dreaming of fixing my 90 FL for years. Been doing the homework, keeping links. It seems I never have the time. So I hired the amazing Sebspeed. Since this is still a question, the fairings you seek are here: Piece by piece exact replica of each fairing piece. Not as expensive as the originals (I bought 2 sets early on). Linea Moto Italy Thurn in germany. Fiberglass single piece upper front, 2 piece lower (replaces 4 pieces). Tail is RC30 style. mono post or bipost to fit original seat. They are having a sale with special discount starting in January, according to the email I got. Moto XP Ricambi, also in Italy. They look like the same ones Poly 26 sells (but Poly 26 won't ship to US). These are the 3 piece complete front set. They have a factory style rear seat in one piece fiberglass, and a fender. I think I am ordering from Moto XP. Somebody order from Thurn, and somebody get the Linea moto pieces and we can all compare. Cheers! (or Ciao, as a tip of the hat to JZH).
  9. Dude, measurements in inches? Nice. True machinist. All of our designs are done in metric, then converted to English measurements for machining in the lab I work(ed) in.
  10. Hey, I looked, but I have a 5th gen, and no PC. Want one, but no have. My birthday is coming soon, but so is a move to Florida...probly no PCIII in my near future! Sadness. Cheers!
  11. Quick ride report: they are fine. I don't think I will move either the brake or shift lever. They seem good. Don't use the rear often (as a pedal - the linked system uses it regularly I am told), and the shifter is good for up shifts, and due to some ugly basketball/motorcycle accidents, I move my feet on the pegs to activate those two anyway. These are nice pegs, i think. Well worth the few minutes with the grinder. Cheers!!
