1990 Honda VFR759F-L, 748cc. Registration number H255 WFV. Frame number RC30 2009268. Engine number RC36E 2011321. Honda had a lot riding on the VFR750F when it arrived in 1986, not the least of which was having to live down the preceding VF750's appetite for camshafts and cylinder heads... The VFR750F was introduced a sports bike to compete with Suzuki's GSX-R750 and Yamaha FZ750, but with the passage of time found itself reclassified as a 'sports tourer', a role in which it excelled. The new V4 engine was slotted into a state-of-the-art aluminium beam frame, replacing the VF750F's steel chassis, while the latter's shaft drive was dropped in favour of a lighter and more efficient chain. Early VFR750Rs featured a conventional two-sided swinging arm while later (1990 onwards) models have used a single-sided swinger. WFV was first owned by Mr Johnson of Westhoughton, bought from Bill Head of Preston. The service book was stamped 8 times up to 39,279 miles in 2002 and then there are paper receipts for the service history after that. It has an extensive history folder with MOT's going back to 1993, the last one being in 2010 at 51,757 miles, today it is 52,576. In 2002 it was owned by Robert Davies of Wakefield, our vendor buying it later that year at 39,280 miles. It has been in storage since 2010 when a Moto Guzzi came along. Sold with the V5C, MOT's, history folder of receipts and a Haynes manual. It will need recommissioning before use.
