Look at this sorry state iv'e rescued.
I always fancied one. Don’t know why. They didn’t corner well, didn’t go far on a tank of fuel. Have fun doing it up and take loads of photos
No not then,it is now.I had to replace the fuel tank,carbs,exhaust system plus many other parts,it's cost me an arm and leg.
Yes full power V BOOST,it's a 1994 American import.It was unregistered,so i put it in a UK registered 2001 frame.
Had 2 of them, both full power American imports, you get used to the cornering and relatively poor braking for a 1200cc muscle bike but you can have some fun on them and there are plenty of parts knocking about. I got stopped by the local traffic patrol, being clever I got all the paperwork out ready but they only pulled me over to have a closer look at the bike they had never seen anything like it before, I was one of the first to have one around my area (1992) ish and I still like the looks and raw power of a Vmax.
They do look good,you love the look or you hate the look.Iv'e done a few upgrades,progressive fork springs,braced swing arm,frame braces,braided hoses.I did all the paintwork last summer,it's nearly finished.I must say,it's looking good.
I have had 2 VMax, one highly modified, progressive springs, Ohlins shocks, frame brace, extra solenoid with heavy duty wiring and the best mod of all a 17" rear wheel that allows modern tyres and improves handling immensely. Makes a surprisingly good tourer with the addition of a small screen. Greeves 246
Got any pics?
The back wheels were offset (istr) as much as 19mm on some models. So it was easier to go round left than rights (or the other way round)
Has it got all its gears as well, I've seen a few that have "lost" 2nd gear.
R1 front end is the way to go, everytime Ive ridden one plenty grin, but scared my self
WAS gunna say 10mins on tinter net & you will have all the bits in the post ! But after reading the post you've done that allready ! Picys I like picys !

Fixed that for you

Loco, that's proper work right there. Any finished pics?
I love them but think my 98 R1 would handle better.
