Default VFR800, my accidental first build...

Hey all, I've been working on this bike since January, finally felt like sharing it. I never planned on turning her into a streetfighter but one interstate move and a severe lack of space here I am

Here she is at the start



A fresh coat of paint and some R1 forks later



But I decided I wasn't done, needed to do something about that fat ass

Enter an 05 CBR1000rr tail



Had the frame and swingarm hydroblasted for that bare aluminium look, absolutely stoked with the results



Also had the new lower mounts welded on, same guy and again beautiful work



New tail end back on the bike, around this time also switched to some CBR1000rr forks.



Tank, tail fairing and seats back on



Then it was time to move



Once up found one of these at the local wreckers



Then I got a little bit distracted by this beauty





But got a few other bits and pieces today and here is the bike as she currently sits:





Still need to make radiator mounts and relocate the oil cooler but I'm pretty happy with how she's coming along so far.

Thanks man! I was blown away by the results and the guy who did it was absolutely fantastic, seriously passionate and professional guy.

Hopefully I'll get the wiring loom back in over the next few days then onto sorting out the oil cooler, rad mounts and new dash.
