    11s for $1100 86' VFR750f interceptor

    I know it isn't an official challenge yet but fuck the lot of you i'm doing it, Here's my story.

    They other day I was on the piss at a mates 30th and just happened to get talking to his mate about bikes, he mentioned he got offered a VFR for $100 and as anyone would he jumped at the opportunity, fast forward a few days and I got in touch with him and said I would take it off his hands for triple what he paid before he even laid a hand on it. As a massive jew he counter offered it to me for $400, so I coughed up the dough and here it is.





    The to-do list -
    Fix the front brakes, binding up.
    Check and lube the chain and see if its salvageable
    Get it running
    ----> run an 11

    So far I have drained all the fluids and checked the air filter which is in surprisingly great nick, as of today I still have $700 left.

    Wish me luck

          Cheers lads.

          Allmtr according to wiki they did a 10.95 when new, got 100hp and weigh 230kg. But this ones got almost 100,000km on the dial, with any luck my jockey weight and some weight loss and HP regaining mods ill be able to get it back to that.... or blow a gearbag.

            Surprising that they say it's so quick. ZX7R I have is supposed to do an 11.2, has 114hp and weighs 203kg?
            Watching this one with interest.

              I never come across bargains like this. Fuggen.
              "Where can we get hold of a Vincent Black Shadow?" "Whats that?" "A fantastic bike," I said. "The new model is something like two thousand cubic inches, developing two hundred brake-horsepower at four thousand revolutions per minute on a magnesium frame with two styrofoam seats and a total curb weight of exactly two hundred pounds."

                      Haha, nice work. I bet it runs an 11 as is.

                      Not a whole lot I wouldn't think unless he removes lights, mirrors etc. Even then, those parts aren't as heavy as you'd probably think. Pillion pegs might weigh a couple kilos. You could remove the side stand and just use a paddock stand like a race bike but it's a pain in the arse and not likely to make any difference at the strip.

                        Does it have a centre stand?

                          It appears that it does. If you look at the picture with the view of the left side you can see there is a foot lever behind the peg. And from the other side you can see the centre stands leg...

                            Fairing and all that crap would weigh a bit and have little effect over the standing quarter.

                              Fairing helps you hang on at 120mph.
