Honda VFR800
A Police version of this motorcycle was released in the fall of 2011 by Fujimi and I really like the design.  I found some pictures on
the Internet of a version decorated to celebrate the Honda "50th Anniversary of Racing" and decided that would be a cool build.  
There was quite a bit of bodywork involved in converting the police version and adding some missing detail.  The Fujimi kit was
quite simplified and I wouldn't say it was the best value for the amount of money - no engine, no brake, clutch, etc. cables and
plastic tires!
