VX Project Bikes / Re: Full fairing
« Last post by Knuckles.mcp on April 17, 2018, 12:23:05 PM »
well as you know the connection point to the muffler is just a false cover plate, so we had to saw the pipes there and then  flare them out with help from a muffler shop (they have a tool for it) so we could slip the aftermarket cans in. they came with mounting brackets so we got the positioning and then siliconed up the connection.
These bmw replica ones were indented on one side to go around a shock, but not the other, so from the back one sticks out a bit more

Looks nice!

How did you connect the mufflers to the downpipes?

VX Project Bikes / Full fairing

'91 USA version with a replica retro fairing from airtech streamlining!! I got the paint matched and everything. Had to do clip-ons and a smaller headlight to fit, got sidemounted blinkers, and 6 angled, welded, and drilled brackets that my very tolerant friend helped me with. Still working on some bar-end mirrors; I have to drill out the clip ons a bit to fit the ones I got. Super stoked tho!!

Sadly, don't have room for multiple bikes any longer, so the VX has to say goodbye.

Willing to haggle a bit on the price, especially for a forum member; really like to see her go to someone who would appreciate her.

These are great aren't they? I had one under the seat on my Guzzi, but am in the process of replacing it with one that has a flip up clock. I plan on putting it on my dash in easy reach of the Sat Nav/phone mount I'm making to go behind the screen.

Nice install.

The bike was sadly sold. Thanks Mike, did not get the 4k though. A few days later the bike was in a dream. What did I do?

Bought in new in crate in 1995. It has been good to me, zero incidents. Would prefer to sell to someone who appreciates this fine motorcycle. Runs perfect, looks close to perfect, exhaust pipes even have no bluing. I am in the San Francisco bay area where it is listed on craigslist. Have to sell to make room in the garage, would keep it forever if I had the room. Replies with any recommendation on selling price is appreciated, thanks fellow vx800 enthusiasts. Here is the link

In all honesty I think the bike would be worth say $4k, maybe. For a pristine example....
Ever thought about contacting Barber Museum? Or any museum?

YMMV

I just looked at the craigslist link, saw the price was wrong. It is suppose to be 1650!
