1994 Honda VFR750F Custom (RC45 Tribute)



Click here for an CycleVIN Motorcycle History Report on this Honda VFR750F. Additional photos are available here for your perusal.

Built by James Mott of Hand Made Racers in Australia, this is a Honda VFR750F (RC36) that has been extensively modified to become a tribute/celebration of the legendary Honda RC45.

James took this bike to the next level by also adding some touches to recall Mick Doohan’s #11 RC45 Suzuka 8 Hours endurance race bike.

Tyga bodywork with endurance upper fairing.

The wheels have been painted or powdercoated gold.

Front end from a Honda CBR929RR.

Hyperpro shock with remote preload adjuster.

Aftermarket dash.

OKI tribute livery.

Aftermarket turn signals.

It was built for fun, it’s not a replica, it’s a lookalike. I like to call them ‘celebration’ bikes – comfortable and quick enough for fun.”

Manufactured in October of 1994, this example is VIN: JH2RC36U5SM500166.

The odometer shows 1,151 kilometers ( miles), which represents distance covered since the build. Total mileage is not known.
