What to do with an old Ascot? - January 23, 2006, 08:24 AM

well my brother has an old early 80's honda ascot, he was going to ride it until he actually did and immediately went out and got an F4i... I dont need it, since i have my RR, but i do want to ride it. Parts are scarse and aftermarket is unknown... its got cafe racer style bars on it but thats about it.

what would you do with it?

looks like this but all black

Dude, my first bike was a 1984 Ascot VT500, as opposed to the FT 500... It was a STOOPID fun bike! I learned quite a bit about streetriding on it... including the fact that beers and bikes DO NOT mix well. Sadly, I put it into a ditch at a high rate of stupidity riding drunk... Is the FT a shaft srive as well? If it is, have fun with it. Shaft drives tend to raise the rear end. It's WAY easier to burnout than to wheelie... Like I said, STOOPID fun bike!


2001 GSXR 1000 (The bike that lit the afterburner on the liter class world)
2012 Monster 1100 Evo
2003 Yamaha YZFR6 (track only)

mmm... carbon fiber

umm he might actually... i'll ask him if you're interested. I need to go over there and take some photos of my bike for the insurance company anyways.


nah, chain.
any thoughts on modding its suspension? i suppose just adding some air to the fork will balance it back out... i kinda was thinking doing something like this duc:

I'm not sure you're quite of exactly how much time and money went into that duc. Insane, really.

Good luck with it, though, badass whip.


Right up the 1 hole.
