I like it. I would have left off the RC51 and RVT. And, possibly black power coat the wheels.

It's better to have loved and lost than live with the psycho for life!

Mr. Honda has a crazy number of crazy good motors sitting on the shelf for years to come that we'll never see. There are so many factors that won't allow us to have them on the streets.

oh man, so close. Should left off the RC51 moniker and done VFR Racing across the mid in the same font. Would've been much better.

As is, the first response is "pffft, that's not a RC51" instead of "hey cool, paying homage to the RC51".

Not much on reading are you?

He DID have an RC51 didnt like the comfort but loved the looks. Thus he bought the Viffer and painted the RC onto it....

I still want to ask ....... WHY?

He cant possibly be THAT weathly!

man that paint job would run $500 from a good shop. why's he gotta be wealthy and why all the nay-sayers? it's a tribute to his RC. and yeah, he shoulda used the RVF decals!

Blue - you have to be one dedicated RC lover to paint a VFR that scheme! Obviously he is going to take a beating on it now trying to sell it.

And with only 1500 miles on it? Something dont seem right.

He's either crashed it and figured... WTF why not make it an RC tribute scheme. OR - he's got more cash than sense.

I LOVE Tig Bitties!

I like it. But then I would.

Get some RVF decals and a RC46 and it would be right.

i don't believe the original geometry was much changed on the mod, it's just the upper sits so low on the body that makes it look nose-low

You know what I meant. The VFR design is poo. change it up with Honda's decades of design experience and knowledge. Offer some limited editions with lightened chassis' and different bodywork. Not the same old bologna we see every year w/ BNG.
