Sad to be parting with my 91' VFR750FM

Hi Guys,
It's been some time since I last posted, not been riding the bike as much as I'd like. Actually have to come to point where it's time to let her go I think. I've got a VFR1200 too, which I love, and I'm hopefully soon to be getting my VF1000 back on the road, which has been going through a full rebuild. So I think something has to give on the garage space front, and so my beloved red 91' VFR750FM is the one to go I think.

It's a shame because it's great fun to ride, has been a pleasure to own and is a very clean low mileage one, but hey ho, you can't have every thing in life I suppose.
Does anyone have any ideas on where best to advertise one of these? Not sure I want to just put in MCN for someone to try and buy as a winter hack or commuter, it's too nice for that.

Cheers

Free ads in Classic & Motorcycle Mechanics will target potential owners of such a classic 90s bike.

Now if it was a Red FL with the Red/White/Blue VFR graphic............

Could try one of the Classic magazines, or via the VJMC (magazine is only bi-monthly, and last one was quite recent, so there'd be quite a delay before an advert appears).

....thanks for the suggestion, that sound a good place, I'll give it a try..........(PS - yes, mines a red FM with white with the little white and blue squares at the top of the 'R' in the VFR graphic)

Hold on until youve had the vf back a while.
I think you may feel differently if it turns out the rebuild was about the process and not the end result.

I’ve had projects before now that I’ve undertaken but when they came to an end, they became 'spent' for me and I slowly lost interest in the final product.

....yes, I imagine it can be strange when the project is over, but I'm certainly not losing interest in the VF1000 so far (which has a few interesting modifications, so should be interesting to ride I think).

I always understood only the FL had the red /white / blue logo and it changed to gold on the FM.
Another learning opportunity.

....mine is all together now; forks rebuilt, rear shock rebuilt, new SS exhaust, new battery, new tyres, so a good time to pass to new desrving owner I think, especially as the mileage is still low.

Been doing some digging

90 FL. Solid Honda wording on tank. VFR on side panels in block design with strong shadow effect and strong Red / White / Blue colouring on letter R.

91 FM. Outlined Honda on tank. VFR on side panels also outlined, no shadowing and small area of Red / White / Blue in letter R.

90 FL paint scheme best IMHO

Ok the info required has now been given (except to try selling on here ?)
As you all know you need to be a sponsor (£15 a year) but where better to sell to other potential/club members for such a pittance in the scale of a bike sale (safer as well IMO)

Need to close this thread now as it could well turn into a For Sale thread (odds on it will)
