94 VFR cafe'ish thing.

I've had this VFR for quite a few years. love the bike, but after being hit by some fvcking stoner kid trying to toke and drive it was in need of some serious love. Plastics are ridiculously expensive and I've always had this yearning for cafe. and thought what the hell, I'll give it a shot and see if I can come up with something cool. I also had a 94 YZF750 track bike that I was having a hell of a time finding parts for. it sat in a state of near completion for about two years. but when it came down to it my heart just wasn't into it. I couldn't see myself getting out on the track and not riding my RC51. so it donated a lot of parts to my VFR and some to my little lady's GS500. Any way here is a starter shot. don't have much time right now to post the whole build up to this point, but here is a little teaser pic

not mine , but this is what I started with at well over 500 lbs
