    Finally finished my project!

    Hi everyone, I was talking to one of the members of the forum on Instagram the other day and he advised to share my project so here I am! My bike started as a '89 bros 400 but has had quite a bit of modification. To date it has
    Africatwin twin 750cc engine
    R1 front end
    Vfr400 tank
    Vfr800 rear hub with a modified bros swing arm
    Modified rvf400 front fairings
    Modified rs125 seat
    Fabricated the subframe,exhaust and loads of brackets
    Painted it in my favourite theme- Rothmans Honda

    Hope to start putting a few more miles on it in the next few months

    Very cool. Nice work.

    I am very surprised the lights have not had an intimate conversation with your front fender yet.

      Impressive work. Looks stock.

      Dude....... Yeah.

          The front light has gotten away with it so far,its more to keep the law happy than anything else.

          I just do it as a hobby.Messing with bikes in my shed is my happy place.

          I made the subframe and fairing brackets. The pics show when I was mocking it all up. The bottom half of the fairing is one piece with a flat bottom so has 4 bolts on to brackets on the bottom of the engine are. There is another bracket where the "R" of rothmans is which attaches to the inside of the frame.

            Nice. This aluminum tube subframes are so light. Had the old hawk connection one and once Drewster made one. Imo that's the best way to do it light!

            Makes it a little trickier to stuff the battery and electronics in there but looks like you solved that cleanly. Nice.

              Really nice job. Looks great.

              Have you seen the single headlight setup for the RVF? Could be a future mod.

                        Pirelli tires and Tokico calipers. Next you're gonna tell me you smoke HB cigarettes.

                          Well done, bike looks great. I can definitely relate to the amount of work that went into this. I see the Dublin reg, hopefully I see this in the flesh one day. Well done again!

                            Thanks for all the kind comments.
                            Had though of endurance style lights on it but decided against it in the end. Maybe on the next one.
                            Not my first Bros, really like working on them.
                            I have loads of pictures of the build on my Instagram page if anyone wants to see it,look for jfk_bikes.

                              Beautiful! But where in the English-speaking world are you where you can get away without blinkers (winkers)? Or am I missing something?
