So today was another good day in my life because today i picked up this very battle scarred but mechanically sweet 1988 VFR400R NC24, from ad91on on here. First things first, this bike is fast, very fast for a lams bike, it sounds amazing with its V4 engine and straight cut gear driven cams, and is so flick-able its insane. For those that are not aware, the VFR400R is not supposed to be lams legal, however someone at the RTA confused it for a RVF400, and approved it, its guestimated that it has around 65+ hp and at least 40 torques. Took it for a run up to old road today, amazing bike, though its been weird getitng used to a full fairing compared to my previous naked, very trippy not having the gauges move when you steer. Its also a big change from the smooth and slow hornet with its fat tires, to pin sharp lightning quick direction changes. I have big plans for this bike: 1. Dyno and tune up to make sure its running sweet 2. repairs to the fairing, including patching some holes, bit of bondo and then a full sand and respray. 3.takamii tron wheels, red at the back and blue at the front (HRC colours) 4. random billit crap, such as levers, master cylinder, perhaps grips and bar ends. 5. refurbishment of suspension (maybe) new fork springs and new rear shock 6. retrim of seat and probably new foam and such. the bike already has braided lines, xenon headlight and bigger carbys. so really i just want it to look the way it did when it rolled out of honda 24 years ago with a few nice modern touches with the random billt crap and takamii tron bling bling. Sorry for the night shot, ive been riding all day but i gave it a quick wash (white wheels -](*,) and used some basic wet look car polish (really needs a cut first though) and the colour actually come out quite nicely, especially the tank. Here is a picture of a factory fresh one of the same year and model. it is the goal.
