    '84 VF1000 Interceptor Conversion

    I figured I'd better get this build thread rolling! So to kick things off a couple of pics:

    Front fairing off still unloaded.

    motor ready to drop, trying to figure out some of the design aspects of the bike.

    They still had steel frames in those years so welding battery and motor mounts will be easier for you. Have fun!

    Yes! I need to get a bottle for my tig welder and practice a bit, been a few years. I also work at a place that uses a lot of aluminum so any outer modifications will be made from that.

    Looks good man! Seems like it's going to be a great donor bike.

    Nothing better than an empty frame to start with.

    I'm wondering if Honda used the same frame for their 500/750/1000 in those early years or if I just lucked out finding the 1000.
    There is just about 12" of space across the inside of the frame.

    here is how it sits right now

    nah... each model was different.
    I had 500's and had friends with 750's. The 1000 is huge! Way to go!
    Although the CB 750 in the generation before could swap out engines with the 900 model, so maybe those were the same frames. Those in line 4 engines shared the same crankcase, just different heads.

    Good to know, thanks.
    Now I just need to figure out if a centerstand from a 750 will fit on the 1000, the one for this bike is missing.
