1985 Honda VF1000R 100% original

Warning!

This post is in our archives. Links in this post have been updated to point to similar bikes available to bid on eBay.

Although, I’m not sure this counts as a rare sport bike, it does make me appreciate 1985 HRC cutting edge technology.  I also couldn’t help myself, but to chuckle a little bit and to think of those pioneering road racers who raced these beast.  Take a close look at the pictures and look at the early “vented disc brakes” on the rear.  Is it just me or do those bolt together rims look a little flimsy?

This 1985 Honda VF 1000 R shows very well and appears to have been taken well care of.  If you notice in the pictures, it has all of the original stickers still on it.  The last pictures shows the chain adjustment sticker still in tact.  I always thought if I removed those stickers I would be saving weight and thus go faster; if nothing else I would look fast sitting still!  All joking aside this is one nice bike that is on the verge of being an antique (gees, I’m getting old). 

This one is located at a dealer in Midlothian, IL

All original Honda vf1000r Interceptor.  The bike is in the all original red, white and blue racing colors and has 9,010 original miles. This bike is all stock and as original as they come.  Every sticker from the chain guard to the frame are intact and in perfect condition.

 
I hope you appreciate it as much as I do.  Just looking at it makes me feel patriotic.

  • Comstar bolted together wheels were and are quite strong
    and were used by some GP riders. Just don’t ever loosen
    the bolts. A huge jig is needed to prestress them for
    assembly.

  • Hi,

  • Fantastic bike and now sold. The bike shop by the way has closed down. Many thanks to DD for assistance in locating and updates of the bike which will go with my VF1000 F2 Bold’or which for what ever reason was imported from Austria to Australia.

  • I didn’t do much, but enjoyed the little I did to. Plus I have a new friend 🙂
