Honda Britain nc30

Post by Timon » Thu Sep 01, 2011 6:51 pm

Not a hugely special bike, but its my new VFR400 nc30, and would explain why I have been a bit slack on my other project VFR (My VFR400 nc30 build thread). This bike has been taking my time and money for the moment.

I bought the bike as the body work is in really good condition, and has a full SS exhaust system as well as a Renthal chain and sprocket kit. Although she was a bit dirty.

Image

Image

My first plan was to strip the fairing off and use it as a road legal track bike.

Image

Image

Image

It all went on well as a track fairing could but I was far from happy with the result. So I decided to put my old original red fairing from my other project vfr. As well as giving her a good clean, lube and check over.

Image

What I found hiding under all the grime.

Image

Going back together.

Image

Did my usual trick to VFR's and place some black vinyl to the screen to cover the bit behind the clocks.

Image

Now done and a quick coat of speed wax.

Image

It has a red rear seat on until I paint the single seat cover and I replaced the faded red anodised brake fluid resovoir with an original black one.

Next in line is to get a graphics kit from Brooky made up to make her look like this.

Would rather spend the money on my other VFR

That said when the rear tyre needs changing, which isn't far off, think I will do the them gold.
No idea what shade of gold though?

I love the level of geek on this forum :grin: .

I'm assuming that 'YR502P - golden glow pearl' is a honda paint code?

^^^
I think that is a Honda car code. I believe it was quite a popular colo(u)r (sic) on US market models.
