So many nice elements. But overall kinda funky.



You can see here where he had to modify the Spondon frame to get the turbo in.

I like that but i think the green on the engine lets it down.

What a shame you lopped off the boat tail For me that gave the bike a lot of character. I rode a used one several times back in the 80s when I was selling bikes. I'd have bought it, but we were a Honda dealership and I rode what I sold. Those things really would sing. You had to wing them up a lot more than the 450 Hondas, but it was fun and I think a six speed if I remember right.

Ok, just a twitter post.
Since I started riding and learning more and more about the craft as well as working on my own machine, I have fallen in love with the earlier superbikes. A well set up machine can easily embarrass most 1000cc riders out there who are only really good in the straights......
I always wanted a vfr 750 as my all arounder, but when I was at Laconia this past weekend, I saw a V-four 1000. Holy crap that looked great, I went back to the build thread/pictures posted earlier in this thread and am now dying to get my bike sold. I have to get a truck first since I just bought a house, but the 1000 interceptor is so on the list!!!!

My 1st bike was a leftover 1987 Yamaha Fazer FZX700. Got it when I was a 19 year old jarhead and laid it down 2 blocks from the dealership.
So fast forward to my early 30's and I decide to not only find another but to update it. So here is my 86 Fazer with full FZR1000 front and rear ends (17" front, thicker forks, 18" rear & lighter swingarm). Has Vmax shocks and a luggage rack from France. Handlebar risers were from Germany. Took a long time to find some things but the bike was amazing. I sold it when I got a ZRX1100.

I also have 2 1993 Zephyr 1100's. One stock and this one that has full ZRX1100 suspensions with ZX11 wheels. Love it!

Ooh, I like that.

An old friend of mine did something very similar with his FZX750 - we spent weeks poring over Yamaha parts books & breakers price lists.
His bike ended up with, if my memory serves, FZR1000 Cobra race pipe, EXUP forks & brakes, 17" FJ1200 front wheel, TZR250 discs (same part as EXUP discs but half the price from the breaker), FZR600 back wheel, Honda CB1000 Big One shocks & a JMC deep brace swingarm.

Lovely bike, wish he'd dig out from the back of his workshop & put it back on the road. It had around 90k miles on it when he stopped riding it because his new wife bought him a Honda

There was a site by a guy in Portugal that was the ZRX750 king. Modern suspension made the bike fantastic. If there was a way to get more fuel capacity on it I probably would've just kept it. I got to be a bit of a Fazer king myself. I think in the 3 years I was back into them I owned 5 or 6 2 of which were ridable and the rest were parted out.
Fantastic engine. I was happy to see recently that Cycle World gave the Fazer props for making the cover 20 years ago. We only had them for 2 years, what a shame.
