    Hondas always look better with white wheels.

    I love the bike and upgrades but that whole Japanese slash graphics thing looks like a clown threw up on the bike. I like the VFR because its got class. That paint - not so much.

    Yeah, that paint scheme isn't my favorite either. Otherwise, it seems to be a very well done conversion, and I really like the RC45 look.

    Oddly enough (odd because I don't smoke, and didn't grow up watching motorsport), I find the '99 Lucky Strike livery to be pretty attractive:

    Joey Dunlop's '94 IOM TT livery is classy and simple. You could do something similar in red with some tasteful lettering and come out looking good without going full-on race-replica, I think:

    Wow, there is a lot going on with this bike! Clearly some front end and rear carrier work, plus the aesthetic additions. Care to share a list? Those clear clutch covers are cool.

    Cool, I thought so. Way back, I was one of (as far as we knew) the first four folks to get a VFR800 Wolf system. We called ourselves the "Wolfpack," and I was the keeper of the list. We got up to about 15 members before folks started either crashing, or selling. But it was a stunning system, and really transforms the bike. Yours looks great.

    I would have relations with this bike.
    In the town square, at noon, in front of my wife, and her attorney.

    Well met. There are still posts and guides out there from that group that helped me set mine up. Mine probably needs re-packing, but I am hesitant to take that on. A bit loud, but not awful. I had a '99 years back, sold it when I got into racing, but always missed it. Found this '98 and set about making it back into my dream VFR. Don't want to get too wild, though (must resist supercharger). Couldn't be happier. I'm just a VFR guy I guess.

    I just picked up this NC30 on Saturday. I drove all day to get it. The seller was kind enough to make a 3 hour round drip to shorten my round trip drive from 13 hours to 10.

    For those not familiar with this model, they were never officially imported to the US. They were sold mostly in Japan, and some limited numbers of them were sold in the UK and other European countries. Titled examples are very rare in the US. The NC30 is the "baby brother or sister" to the rare/expensive RC30 VFR750R. Some of them even had the same red/white/blue color and graphics of the RC30.

    It is wonderful to ride, so light and flickable. Yes, for what I paid for it, I could pick up any number of more modern, more capable 600cc sport bikes, I just love the V4's character. I also don't need the performance of a 600. The little 400cc V4 is more capable than you'd think for such a small engine. I do need to get a different muffler though. The stock Honda exhaust is typical Honda -- way too quiet.

    Congrats! :clap

    I can't decide whether to admire you, curse your ancestry, or to politely ask that you let me know if you ever decide to sell. :evil

    At the very least, PM me if you ever get a sniff of another one out there.
