Impulsive as I am

Post  mrfrance on Sat Jul 06 2013, 08:38

Hi guys,

I am selling my Thunderace (already) as myself and my Team Gravel Rash accomplice (Alleycat) are doing a bit of a project. I am going to purchase an old vfr750 and street fighter it, Alex hasn't quite made his mind up which bike he will get just yet.

I'm not officially listing it on here as not sure will generate the interest, however if anybody should be interested then please feel free to PM me for details.

Cheers

Paul

VFR Streetfighter sounds like a cool project! Keep us updated on your progress, I'd really like to see how it turns out.

There are a couple of nice examples on the German VFR-Forum, though quite a lot of cash was required.
Like this one:


Hope it's ready in time for the Nürburgring next year then great

If all goes to plan it will be ready for TOL this year Very Happy 

That is a very nice example although I certainly won't be going that far. Will definitely keep everyone posted of progress.

Haha yeah she's not even smokey any more, I'm just not happy with it, I love the chunkyness but I miss the flick ability of the cat so just want to try something new... I'll eventually end up with a cat again green smile

Well I made another impulsive decision and decided I couldn't part with my Smoking Aces just yet, mostly because after comparing the performance the Ace is far superior to the VFR. In which case I will either be doing a restoration project on it (tying to get it to quit smoking) or turning it into a fighter green smile

I think you just need more bikes in your life, everyone needs more bikes, I'm still looking for that certain something, a long termer if you will, that may even be a cat.

Good luck with your project though Paul, hope it turns out for you and look forward to a long and heavy on the pictures thread!!
