Default another v four from Rex

So, few months back at local FB group my friend pointed me towards advert about bike on sale, IIRC it was CBR600 or CBR1000F anyway, guy had several bikes and he wrote that he has 1984 VF1000F with some kind of defect. Out of curiosity i wrote him a PM and asked what's the deal with the bike. He replied that it has spun a bearing and bike hasnt been ridden in a while, asking prive was 700eur. out ot politness i asked for pics(knowing that his price is astronomical) that was the end of our conversation

So a month later he replied me with pictures and told, that he have been overestimated the state of bike and offered me a price of 100eur. i gave it a bit of thinking and decided i need it.

so here is the bike on day i picked it up with my dad, and this bike will be given to use for him, with ocassional usage from me. on the day of picking up, we spoke for a while, and he realized that i already have two VFR's, he understood that bike is in good hands




Poppa Rex


bike transported to new home, next to my dads 1987 XJ600

looks silly small



so the bike, engine looks quite sad


this is the part of bike i kinda dig a lot



this is radiator that has been hiding under the front fairing, we will get to this point later on, but i would like to relocate it or, just get bigger radiator, because i dont like the front fairin, dad hates belly pan. rest of bike is cool in our taste



so one day i deleted the front fairing, dad did the belly pan. then came day when he asked me to take him pick up brake caliper for his car, so i went to his job(where we keep the bike) and i saw that he has already taken off tank and seat, so we went from there to just take engine out


dont get me wrong, i was doing work too, just he didnt took pics


so we ended up freeing the engine, but couldnt get it out of frame, that's how it sat for couple of weeks until last week i went there and decided that in order to take engine out we should remove exhaust pipes as well(we didnt bothered to look at service manual, that we had given at purchase)
[img][/img]
so i took it out and placed on table for disassembly


this is how bike will stay for a while until dad gets some free time from work(overload) also this is a coproject that is funded by me. so slow

so this is what i would like bike to look, if iļl get enough motivation and funds



ideally with some futuristic LCD speedometer and front end like this

Paintwork doesn't look too bad at all. That'd still be a 700 bike here, runners begin at 900 and up (which is why I don't have one)

So there is some problems on the road. Engine is still on the table. Dad tried to disassemble it this week. And it looks like flywheel is stuck for real. The thread on it was ripped off. Dad made some hooks to lift it up through those small holes in it. They bent out. So yeah, we will try to weld a fat and long nut to it and try to lift it up with more leverage. Checked used engine prices on ebay... If flywheel wont come off, that might be an end for this project, because at that price i could try to catch st1100, and do longitdal v4 build instead. Quite sad
