my vf with a seat cowl fitted
« on: March 23, 2016, 07:49:24 pm »
Got a seat cowl off ebay, didnt come with hardware so had to do some fabricating but im well pleased with the results,rattle can spray job is fine,but took me 2 goes to get the white right, it has a look of 80s prody racer I think and it goes much faster with the cowl on!

hi intruder,

bike looks well with the seat cowl, those things are getting harder and harder to find these days.
:o.. Oh Feck..... Think I Got It Wrong Again.. :o

Thanks for the replies guys.
I looked on ebay for ever trying to spot one.
mostly an american thing and very expensive, thought bike is nice anyway but thought it would make it a bit different with cowl fitted. I paid £60 for the privilage and then had to paint it and fit it without the proper kit, but yes very pleased with it. just sold my 1983 gpz1100 unitrak today for a £1000 profit,£2750 sale price, I wont sell my vf but I am looking for another project to fix up, seems like there are alot of people wanting born again classics out there so why not make a little cash out of a hobby.
cheers.

@Intruder: that looks really well mate.

I love that decal kit, did you get that yourself is is it OEM?

I'd like to get a red Interceptor decal kit for my VF.
