Title: Burned Honda Ascot vt500ft project
Post by: Donny026 on June 03, 2018, 03:51:43 AM
Hi guys & girls,
 
A friend of mine is getting his licence, and fell in love with a '84 vt500ft. Unfortunately the owner also had an deregistered burn-victim in his shed, which gave me a very sad feeling in my tummy. We decided to make a nice deal and took the two of them home.

The deal is that i'll help my friend to tune up his fron suspension (hypepro springs, oil & seals), and I get the burnvictim with the deep hunger for TLC.

My plan is to recover it, get it registered again and to costumize it to my liking.


Ive added some pics, including my inspiration bike!

Welcome to the board. Looks like a good foundation to begin with. This link might be helpful if you decide to swap out the front end: http://ascot500.com/index.php?topic=151.0
