1998 Honda VFR800fi, part dismantled. SOLD


Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Long back story cut short. I started stripping my VFR down a couple of years ago when we moved house, expecting to have time to make it roadworthy. Unfortunately seriously underestimating just how much work was needed on the house meant I just don?t have any time to work on it.

Pre-strip down it was a good runner but wouldn’t pass an MoT due to leaking forks, leaking oil pipes and a previously notified leaking rocker cover. Cosmetically it was also in pretty  rough condition (I’m not really selling this well am I).

I’m looking for £400 for spares or repair, collect from near Brampton, Cumbria.

I’ll post photos when I get opportunity

Might be interested. How soon did you want it moved?

It’s not in my way, (it’s been where it is this long, a bit longer won’t hurt) so to suit you.

This is the bike just before I removed the front wheel and fork legs. I’ve started dismantling under the fuel tank - the coils are loose, but that’s pretty well as far as I’ve got.

 

i’ll post photos of the bike pre-dissembling, from a couple of years ago. They’re probably flattering as the bodywork has numerous scratches and cracks.

I think I have the standard screen as well as the double bubble, but would need to confirm.

Our retirement was supposed to be downsize house, upsize garden. Perhaps a small project (extension / redecorate type thing). The garden upsize certainly happened (from 70’s estate type house to 3 acres), the house is about the same size as our previous one and is a complete gut and renovate project. Aargh.

I’m on holiday for a couple of weeks soon, so 18th June or after is no problem.

Hi @Steve_M, couple of quick question's what's the mileage, and are the fork legs pitted?

Mileage 49,000 miles (ish)

I’ll need to check the fork legs when I get home this evening but I would assume yes as the fork seals need replacing.
