    Welcome to the site, any pics?

    I think you’ve got a VFR750FG or FH, lots of bits on eBay, people seem to think breaking them down to there component parts is going to sell them better … like £6 for a single used gudgeon pin

    I’ve been working my way through an FK (89) that had been stored for 15 years during the last 18 months so have a good idea of what lies in store for you, any questions just ask

    Joe @ v4dreams.com is your first place to start
