’85 Honda Interceptor VF1000R- Short Production, Great Bike!

Location: Lynn, Massachusetts
Mileage: 53,000
Price: Auction, Current bid $1650

Honda has built its fair share of V-4’s and most of them have been in the sportbike world have been in the 750 or 800 cc range. Well, here we have the VF1000R, a 998cc V-4. This bike was introduced in 1985 at a time when there was a bit of a gap in the Interceptor world. Models were going out in 1985 (VF700F) and coming back in 1986. The 1000 was a bigger, badder version of the VF1000F (new in ’84), cranking out 117 bhp with a box-section steel frame and an aluminum swingarm. It also had a pair of floating front disc brakes and a 41mm fork.

Not a lot of description from the seller:

1985 Honda VF1000R Interceptor, 53K miles, very clean with only minor cosmetic flaws such as light scratches, tank ding, and tear in seat. New tires, brakes, fluids, and battery. Runs very nice. Sharp vintage Honda with low miles. Just bought it but wife says it needs to go!!!!!! Shipping iand all associated costs are the responsibility of the buyer. Thank you and good luck bidding!!!! I reserve the right to end the auction early as the Honda is for sale locally.

More photo goodness-

This bike was only in production for Honda for two years. The year after its introduction saw the release of the VFR750F, a hit on the street and the track for Honda. I’m not aware of any other V-4 liter bikes like this produced by Honda since then. To me, that makes the bike a little more special. This bike does have 53,000 miles on it, which is a lot. However, I have seen many Interceptors with high mileage still running well. But I would be cautious and make sure the bike runs strong.

  • Contrary to the sellers claim this is high milage example and will need a rebuild. $$ If it sells for under $2k it may be worth it to a backyard mechanic but you would never get your money out of it afterwards. Good for parts though.

  • […] classic bike month here on RSBFS, and I am not complaining one single bit! For example, check out this VF1000R or the other VF1000R posted just this week – great stuff indeed. And don’t forget to […]
