Got the bike back after my mate borrowed it for a year, but he did barely 100 miles on it. He did mange to get a new mirror for it, so that's a plus.  I still have to sort the lacquer out, but not to bothered. I brought a Hot Cam Carbon can that was for a VFR800 Fi some time back, and have now fitted it to day.  Very light. I had to make a bracket and cut and re-weld the the connecting tube so the can would miss the swing arm. Thought I would add some pictures of it, but will not let me. Will try later.

Got my Hurricane back a few weeks back and insured it straight away and went for a 30+ mile ride to get back in the swing. MOT today and sailed through. Now what to do. Do I keep it, or sell it, as I have to many bikes on the road. 2 is great, but 3 is meaning that they don't get the use they deserve. A good time of year to sell, but I don't thing they get the price they deserve, especially with the low mileage this one has, and garaged all the 20 years I have had it.

This might be of some use to someone. It has a bung so it can just have the one can, It looks like it also have a fibreglass panel so the the other side can be tided up were the can and shield is removed.

Lock down it giving some to much time on there hands. I thought I would share my street view, which has me cleaning my bike a few years ago. I am surprised it is still there, as many streets have been updated of late. It is only that others have put there street view on other forums.,-0.9709852,3a,60y,99.57h,86.07t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1sBZ9LGY6V3PCQAQjOB3smJQ!2e0!7i13312!8i6656

Hi, is there any way of changing the background on the pages? I find having white writing on a dark blue back ground a pain. I would prefer a white background with black print.

Well after having the bike half dismantled for 4 years, it is having a good going over. One of the fork seals was leaking very badly and the float bowls was leak now and then. I come across a very low mileage (13.000) silver VTR1000 just up the road from me 4 years ago, so that was the toy for a will. Made my own exhaust for it and a brought a new Pyramid belly pan and looks a treat. I than come a cross a 12,500 mileage VFR800 vtec. And as I had a VF750 for 9 years I just had to have it for the V4 sound. I did quit a lot of work on it including make my own exhaust from the cat on. I have managed to get 28 pound of the bike, and is a sweat ride. In the process of making the modification, I have made parts to sell on eBay, which sell very well. Back to the CBR750. I have not had good health for 30 years, so getting on with it was slow to say the least. Well I had an operation in late January, and now am a new man ( though I am sure it will only lass a few months). I did manage the get the fork seals done last year. But in the lass 3 weeks it has been taken down that just a rolling chassis. Rear sub frame resprayed, exhaust welded were there was a couple of pin holes, and now repainted. The hole bike has has a tooth brush clean. All the Ally foot pegs polished along with the exhaust can. Most of the plastic is not on yet and still in the loft, but I though I would upload some pictures of the bike. I was hoping to have it on the road in a few weeks, but thing are looking very bleak in the would and in the UK, and not permitted to go out riding. The only thing I need is  left hand mirror. I did buy one in 2001 one for it, but broke it the day after fitting it. smile1004mad It is the only mirror I have ever broken.
