1991 Honda VFR750F

Practical Sportsbikes (UK) - - In your shed -

Owner: Martin Mac­queen, Did­cot, Oxon Owned for: three months So far: deep clean and thor­ough ser­vice What’s next? en­joy that V4 mo­tor

Ibought this VFR to re­place a tatty Firestorm. I’ve re­placed the 10-year-old Miche­lins with new Met­zeler Z8 In­ter­acts, plus new chain and sprock­ets. I re­sprayed the front discs, re­placed the fair­ing fas­ten­ers and used Au­tosol on footrests, etc. The rest was just clean­ing and pol­ish­ing along with a new Scor­pion end can to re­place the rusty orig­i­nal. The bike rides fan­tas­ti­cally well, the steer­ing’s very neu­tral and al­though heavy com­pared to mod­ern ma­chines, it’s more en­joy­able than my 2015 VFR800F.

A bit heavy but more en­joy­able to ride than a VFR800F
