Honda VF750C street assasin project

Hi guys...
I bought myself a 1996 Honda VF750C that has been left to rot.Although it's just 1 single owner...I guess this was one well abused no love bike.
So here she is during my first viewing.


Went there again the next few days to settle with the papers.


Took her home...and stripped off the rear junk and add a riser on the rear shocks.



And during the 1st cleanup...found out that the thermostat unit needs replacement,and plugs replaced.The stock airfilter gotta go...So I've just ordered K&N and small signals from ebay.



I saw great potential,and soon....I'm hooked in this project and started to ignore my other bikes.

I shifted the handlebar and its clamp forward.


and repaired the thermostat unit as it is out of stock.
and knocked the dings and paint the tank.Welded a couple of mounting points for the Vapor case.


update again soon...

cheers and thanks for reading...

I've heard how expensive it is to own a car in Singapore is the entitlement to own a bike super expensive aswell?

Nope....

Unless you prefer a brand new BMW GSA,or a brand new KTM...these 2 brands of motorcycles prices have been jacked up pretty high up by local agents compared with prices all over the world...
But if you compared Japanese makes prices,it makes sense...

Well...how this question related with what I am doing?

ahh I was just wondering man I follow both the car scene and motorbike scene but always wondered if its as expensive to own a bike.

looks good though what look are you going for? would look cool if you fitted a RC30 Termignoni left side exit exhaust its the same external casting as the RC30 :)

The anal thing about the system in Singapore now,is the don't make sense rules and regulations on bikes created by intelligent dumbass who practically never ride a bike,and thinks motorcycling is a nuisance..

Anyways...the direction I am taking,would be something comfy for city traffic,for the night highway cruise before meeting some friends for coffee,a bike that would fit for every occasion.

So,here is what the bike has turnout to be so far.

Looks good like the gold wheel look, I'm doing a swap for my spare gold wheels on my bike when my tyres need replacing.
