Today our friends at VJMoto have this fantastic looking Honda VF1000R for sale. It's seen a light refurbishing as noted by the seller and you can tell from the photos it's been well looked after. While mostly stock there are some thoughtful improvements that are probably much appreciated when riding.
from the seller:
Up for auction is this beautiful 85 Honda VF1000R ( production # 689) with 5203 original miles. I have personally owned the bike for 3 years, it had sat for quite some time prior to my purchase in 2010. It has had a mild restoration ( No frame off, it is original paint on frame so there are some scratchs here and there.) the original bodywork was re-done in 2011 by Meticulous Motorcycle Painting in Spokane Washington, IMO opinion one of the best spot on stock re-sprays I have ever seen, bike is gorgeous. The following is a list of what was done to the bike, Carbs were rebuilt and synced, Clutch m/c rebuilt, Both brake m/c rebuilt, upgraded the head with tapered bearings, New braided stainless galfers with red banjos, Calipers rebuilt, Powder coated to match brake levers and top clamp, New Yuasa battery, New plugs, New UNI air filter, New OEM grips, powder coated wheels, New Dunlop GT 501's ( less than 300 miles on them) refurbished period correct F1r slip-ons ( sounds great!) header ceramic coated black, Powder coated black swingarm, Powder coated black oem rear sets, new for seals, New Sonic springs with 3" spacers, NEW Hagon rear shock ( huge improvement in the handling ) new factory match seat cover by Sargents. Supersprox rear sprocket ( aluminum carrier w/ steel carrier) l DID gold chain, all stock gearing, new fairing hardware, reconditioned black plastics. I would like to point out that one of the side black mesh panels has a broken eyelet and the radiator plastic cover cap is scratched near the top triple. Rear cowl has one broken tab but bolts up fine. Bike runs great!!!! comes with a clear Texas title in my name.
