1983 Honda VT750C Shadow resto-mod | Brag Your Bike


The 1983 Honda VT750C Shadow is a rare beast in the UK and I have one of three on DVLA records. I have restored it as much as possible and modded what was not.

Extremely rare bike in UK, resprayed in Ferrari red.

Custom silencers, later vt750 decals and tank badges, custom hand grips, mirrors, indicators and numberplate light bracket.

It’s had new secondary fuel tank, I’ve striped and rebuilt front brake callipers, it’s had new front forks, the handle bars are western style. The rev counter was replaced with nos Honda replacement at large cost,  new tyres, new clutch and brake master cylinder’s and a new clutch slave cylinder.

Has been a labour of love as most parts have had to come from Belgium or the USA, as you can imagine the postage costs have been astronomical! All in all it’s a lovely example of this shaft drive custom classic.
