My '86 F2F German import will be on the road within next 2 weeks, if all goes well. But due to crazy tax regulations in DK, I must present the bike in misserable condition, in order to receive a poor evaluation, whereafter I will be asked reduced import tax. I will take it into pieces this comming winter, and get it shined up, if time allows me
I Own a VF750F '83 too, not in original paintings, but still nice to watch. That one is on the road.

Hi
I have one, a 1985 VF1000F2F Bol Dor.
It was on the road until November, now on a sorn for the winter.
It is red with 34,000 miles on the clock and a full set of Fandango luggage.
I love it.
Mark

Greetings from a new member from Canada. Having had a recent bout of "midlife crisis" I found myself rescuing an 84 1000f from a young fellow in need of funds. It has taken a bit of elbow grease but managed to make a few runs last fall and can't wait for the spring to return! Count this one as still alive and kicking!

Just collected an 85 F2 last night as part payment for my 98 Pegaso. It's been off the road for over a year, but it runs; quite well actually :) Desperately needs tyres (absolutely stuffed), a thorough clean, a full service & a couple of minor cosmetic repairs. Hopefully it'll be back on the road in the next couple of months, so that'll be one more. Cheers
If I'm reading this, I've obviously mistaken my computer for a bike again!

Just the two VF1000F's here.  Both Candy Red/Black/white, one is an 84 and the other is an 83.  One has just had a VF1000R motor fitted by Scotty Heyes in Brisbane, and I'm keen to see how it goes.  

If I can work out how to insert pictures I'll throw them in.

Anyone else in Brisbane out there with a VF?

Ive just brough a f2 in red, had it past two weeks replaced front fork seals, rear shock when it arrives and got to fix second gear (mirror broke off after 3 days). It needs lots of work but runs has rego (mot) and performs pretty well for a old unloved bike. front fairing falling apart and been resprayed to many times leaving a bit of over spary on frame and tank :( but plan on restoring it to something close to original and if i go crazy will pull it fully apart for a ground up resto
