    84 Honda VFR 750

    So I ended up with an 84 Honda VFR 750 that is not needs some love that I do not have time for at all. I would love to ride this bike but really busy lately and its a shame letting it go to waste. Apparently it needs the carbs re-built, a rear brake cylinder and the rest is just cosmetic.

    Dabbling with the idea of parting it out selling whole to get something a little more redy to ride. The Jeep takes enough of my damn time as it is lol and i just want something that goes..

    Anybody have any interest in this? or know a good spot where it could get the attention by the right people to not let it go to waste?

    I would love to restore her, but i have zero knowledge of bikes at all and they are not something that I want to experiment on and then go a couple hundred km/h down the road on lol.
    as for an amount, I have no idea. What would be a good starting point?

    @ Exracer - i'll shoot you a pm

    The problem with estimates on any vehicle is you have to have it apart to assess the issue/damage in a lot of cases. For instance the rear brake cylinder may be better to replace or it might need o rings. Carbs can sometimes be an easy fix or need all new internals (jets, emulsion tubes ect ) because they are too badly plugged or corroded. Once cleaned you might find a cracked boot or the rubbers on the boots have shrank over time and won't go back on and therefore need replacing.

    Step one is find a decent honest and fair mechanic. Step two don't nickel and dime him so he won't work on your stuff. The good guys are often cheaper in the end regardless if the guy down the road has a lower rate.

    problem here is the thing obviously does not move and I would have to borrow a truck and trailer even just to get it there. I'll shoot the guy a message and see what he says. Thanks
