    Talking My Honda VF750 -83

    Hello everyone,

    I have started my first MC projekt with this honda and i am fairly green at this with bikes.

    So im in need of a bit of help with some questions and was hoping some of you could help me.

    What i have started with is to tare down all of the tanks and electronics to get some feel of how it will look:



    Now my problem is where to but all the tanks that was there, could i replace the coolant tank with this : Oil Catch Tank Aluminum Coolant Reservoir Catch Fuel Can Tank for Motorcycle | eBay
    or am i totaly wrong here?

    What do i need this for ? xD totaly lost my way when dismantling the bike and my knowledge isnt great. I am learning all the time and i have the manual but i cant find anything useful from it.

    Do i need the coolant water tank? dont really know where too but it on the bike now, any ideas?



    I have rooom for all the electronics under my seat when i am done with it.

    My last question now is, can i but the fuelpump on its side or is that a no go ?

    I agree, that's a classic that deserves to be put back original, and just clean it up as much as possible. You will not improve it.

    Have you got any pics of it fully dressed? I'd like to see what condition the bodywork is in before saying whether you should keep it original or not.

    As for your questions - coolant bottles can be made out of many things (I used an alloy drink bottle for my fighter). Main thing is you need to make sure the hose from the radiator goes to the bottom of the bottle or else it wont draw fluid back into the radiator when the engine cools. The one you linked doesn't do that. I clamped mine to the side of the radiator, but you could also put yours on the side of the frame. This isnt mine but you get the idea:



    Any yes you can lay the fuel pump in any direction and it wont hurt it.

    Why did you buy a bike that you don't like the way it looks? Does it run?

    It became your bike when you bought it. It sounds like you are preparing to turn it into another junk art project, a bike like everyone else is "building". You want to do something different? Make it a better bike.

    I think he is outside the US Tom. That is a foreign market interceptor with boomerang comstar wheels. If he is an American with that interceptor in the US then the dude doesn't know what he has and is just going to absolutely butcher a really nice bike.
