this is my next build it is the Honda rc vfr 750
this bike is the road version of Honda`s racer from 1987, it has a v4 cylinder and 16 valve engine it also has an aluminum box section frame and a single sided swing arm, even before the bike came off the production line it was consider`d to be a collectors item, today if you could find an original one i think you would need very deep pockets.
i have ordered a detail up kit for this model so i will be putting more detail on aswel as hex. headed rivets and maybe some hose fittings rather than just pudhin the hose on to the little lugs on the kit parts, i will cut them off and drill smale holes for the fittings,
i hope to start this within the next couple of days, the kit has a clear see through fairingso i will have to decide if i am going to paint it or leave it see through so the engine detail can be seen
