Tulsa, OK – 10,337 miles – Currently $18,300
If the RC30 featured last week wasn’t enough, we have yet another one of these sought after VFR750Rs up for sale currently. If the Northeast is too far for you, have a look at this one that comes of out Oklahoma. These don’t come up for sale on a regular basis, but I guess when it rains, it pours.
This bike also has low-ish miles with only 10,337 on the clock. The only modification to this one is an auxiliary switch that allows you to run the radiator fan at all times, in case you like to keep it cooler than the other side of the pillow. Recent and extensive maintenance is also apparent as given buy the valve adjustment, fluids, carb cleaning, seals, hoses, and then some. The seller details this better, so with out wasting any time…
I purchased this bike from a collector of rare Honda motorcycles in 2001. It was included in my collection of limited-production homologation motorcycles. It has been ridden carefully on nice days and stored in a climate-controlled display room in my house. It has not been used for track days, or in rain.
It is stock, apart from the addition of a switch adjacent to the choke knob that allows the radiator fan to run at any time, regardless of water temperature. The wires for the switch can be seen on the left side of the radiator area, as they are disconnected from the switch when the bodywork is removed. It has recently had a very comprehensive service that included checking the valve clearances; changing all of the fluids, filters and spark plugs; disassembling, inspecting and cleaning the carburettors, an installing installing new o-rings, gaskets and tuning and balancing them; disassembling, cleaning and installing new seals in the brake calipers, brake master cylinders, clutch master and slave cylinders; replacing various rubber hoses and lines; installing new tires; replacing the battery; servicing the forks; and going over the entire bike to make sure that it is mechanically 100%. Needless to say, the engine starts easily and the bike runs very well.
All of the body panels are the original hand-laid fiberglass factory parts. The paint is in very good overall condition. There are a few small stone chips and scratches that have been touched up but they are not apparent unless you examine the paint very closely. The bike presents very well.
Included is the original bike tool kit in a blue denim cloth bag, the original owner’s manual, two keys and the factory rear wheel stand. I may have some spare oil filters and fluids that I will give to the buyer.
The title is a clear, normalOklahomatitle and it will be held in escrow by my attorney until full payment is made. Payment will be made by bank wire transfer only, to my attorney’s trust account. Details are available upon request.
