About the project

After seeing a VFR400 on the road in my local town I knew I was in love with a bike, this is very rare for me to see a bike an immediately love the style of it. I thought to myself at the time I would not see many of these about. Did a bit of research and saw that the one I had seen was a NC30; I liked its styling but then noticed a NC24 mislabelled up on eBay as a NC30 and I liked the styling more.

At that time I didn't have the funds to buy the bike so I waited out until I could afford the bike. Time went by and I kept looking but then I dislocated my shoulder playing rugby which put me out of riding for nearly 2 1/2 years.

When I was recovered from my 2nd operation I found what I thought looked a nice condition bike. I thought that just needed a bit of tender loving care on it to get it into perfect condition. How wrong I was. After getting it home and taking a look into it more there was an extreme amount of things needing to be fixed on the bike. I set to work doing this and got it up to a nice standard; I got the bike featured on a limited run of 400greybike forum calendars which was my highlight of working on the bike.

After a bit of riding the bike I then got hold of a new exhaust for the bike as you have to remove the engine to replace the exhaust I thought that this was the perfect time to do the project that I had been saving up to do and get the bike into the best condition I could. I think I have now done that and this website was set up to show off this bike that is becoming rarer and rarer. My bike is also the same age as me, I don't know its exact build date but I know the year is 1987.

So all in all I now own my dream bike, have this website and hope to get a lot more enjoyment of riding this bike as much as I can.

Below you will see what the bike looked like when I purchased it:
