  • The wife's 92 VFR750F upgrade build

    I got started on this bike my last weekend off. It is my wife's beloved 1993 VFR750F Interceptor. I had previously installed a 2000 R6 race tail and am adding an inverted set of forks from a Suzuki TL1000r I found in a bone yard.
    Got the front forks installed, with bearings, brakes bled and working, it's back to a roller.


    Next plan before paint is to clean up and seal up the tail.

    This is in mock up before drilled to mount solid ansd before any hardware. I like how its comming together..

    Got the tail all bolted together and trimmed up the diamond plate. Tore it all down and started paint prep. Only got the tail in prime before I quit. The heat today was killer. Back to the 12 hour shifts tomorrow till Friday, then back to the VFR.

      I got 2 parts in color today. Still doing repairs on a bunch more.



      I know you dont see it all that much but I cleaned up and shot header paint on exhaust parts.

        Exhaust work finished up today. All buttoned up and pipe back on, now in header wrap.



        Several Body panels in stages of paint.

        3 More parts, still need to repair. SLower than I wanted it to move faster, but paint, bondo, filler & glaze only dries so fast...

            you would not happen to have an extra rear wheel like the one on your VFR?
            or would you know some one who has a good one for sale?

                Sorry, no extrea VFR wheels on the shelf. The 8 spoke VFR wheel was only on the gen3 bikes. They go for top dollor on EBay. All the other newer gens use a 5 spoke wheel. The VFR guys swoop them up fast & put them on the newer Gen bikes. I'm shut down again on the build till the weekend. Got work till Friday AM. It's going well. Should test rode next weekend if all the parts show up.

                          Typical ohio weather is slowing the paint process, but here is where Im at. With some luck it will be done by Monday all but the front Suzuki fender. In the mail from Cali.
