    One of the best looking bikes ever a RVF 400RR NC35

    Thatīs why i bought the race fairing for a RVF (note a RVF with the V4 engine is quite small)

    thatīs the AM6
    new forks



    the CBR 400RR NC29 tank

    fitting the RVF body.
    the stickers
    and thats how it should look if i donīt paint the fairings (there in white gel coat)

    Yeah, lol.
    Hope fully the copīs will think iīm on a really RVF and wonīt give me speeding tickets

    The wheels and the mono arm on the AF1 are exactly the same as the RVF so that looks quite nice too.
    (50cc over here must go 45km other wise you have some explaining to do. So all are normally restricted to 45 km the am6 should power the bike along at about 80/90km with out any ristrictors and)

    AF1 lights in the top fairing

    top fairing

    iīm going to reinforce the mounting points and i think iīm going to put some steel or stainless mesh in the fairing as added strengthening since itīs a light weight race fairing

    the AF1 was about 900 euros (actually 300 with the insurance money from the accident with the RST)

    A suspension bearing overhaul front and rear 350 euros done by my local Triumph dealer

    The body was 225 euros (very cheap for a race body)
    The Engine was 400 euros
    the forks and jokes 80 euros (got a great deal)
    I donīt know how much the frame is going to cost in modifications i expect round 70 euros.
    the tank was 50 euros in great condition also a very good deal.
    chain and other stuf. 60 euros

    seat will be round 30 pounds
    wind screen will be about 40 pounds
    thank lock will cost me 20 pounds

    going to import a lot of stuff from the UK.
    the stickers are free since companies are more than happy to send you stickers (some send really nice good quality stuff)

    in parts that i need to buy itīs costing me 895 euros ex the bearings and stuf that needed to be done last year.
    iīm going to sell my original AF1 body, engine, seats, forks and fuel tank.
    with some good luck i should get about 225-250 euros from that so that payīs of the body and a few other bits.

    i expect the AF1 to have a value of 1,200 euros after all this is done
    I think i will be spending 1.545 on the bike when i am done thatīs including bike and insurance money.

    if i sell the spare parts i donīt need i guess i will be break even when i sell it (iīm going to keep this bike for as long as possible if i get a car i will keep it for short trips)

    Stuff here and certainly for mopeds (with gears) is expensive here.
    My friends say iīm crazy to spend this kind of money on my bike (they hate racer bikes anyway) but they spent more on new engines and other stuff then me and there still going to lose money when they sell so that does not bother me that much.

    The parts i bought where al very cheap (for dutch standards) the Tank is worth i guess 75-100 euro and i bought it for 50.

    These weekend iīm going to add some fiberglass to the fairings (there to light weight for road use)

    And i am going to drill a new fuel out let in the CBR tank and fill up the old one (which is to much to the side and hits the frame)

    I hope the keep this bike for a while since every thing is with in 4km of my home i donīt really need a car straight a way so i will be saving up for a old C3 or C4 Corvette.

    i hear from a lot of guys that a 120 fitīs fine and you will need to remove or modify the chain cover for a 130.

    This is awsome. I love a good project bike. Dont you think the Honda tank will look to wide for the bike. An RS50tank and cover may be a better fit....but I'm not there to see in person so we will have to trust you....Good luck,cant wait to see the final product.
