Has it got an MOT? If so, a grand for a NC is original colours isn't too bad... I'd probably have paid that for it.
- big mileage though!

looks good i think.

if you want to respray the engine cases, the colour match is
FORD GRAPHITE GREY METALLIC

to clean the swingarm you need, some wd40, toothbrush, then go over again with some wd40 and a cloth. possibly some autosol just to give it the cleaner look with a slight shine. It was blackw hen i got the bike.


top yoke is just satin black.

calipers id fit some Honda SP1/cbr600rr gold calipers. with some rick oliver brackets ?30. www.400greybike.co.uk.

subframe powdercoat as it will only get more rusty.

every bit of the engine will clean up with some wd40, just need toothbrush and some cotton buds/cloths etc.. that bike will come up like new fairly easily.

fork/mudguard clamp, ask for part number on 400greybike or buy from dave silver spares.

Ill looks about for one of them stands cheers, aint wireless laptops brilliant lol can be on the garden on comp while doin the bike....

One warning to all with a vfr or rvf dont get a micron can ive just took the one that was already on off and nearly lost a finger.

I dont need to worry about the subframe as im gettin a tygra kit put on soon as ive saved up enough and got the bike clean to a high standard.

Got some new engine bolts on the way, orderd some wavely disks, new o ring gold chain and sprockets, and a few other bits and bobs.

Will pop down to halfords in the morning and pick up the paint etc.

i was looking at a cbr with the same sort of millage on it how long do you recon it would go for after should be able to double it right
My vfr is on over 60k dunno if thats kilometers or miles, but on one of the MOT certificates it says 80k, dunno if thats a typo or if it really is on 80k, wow, i want to go round the clock again just for fun see how far this really can last
