A request from a reader, Ozzie, to locate a NC30 generated this find on the Reno Craigslist. Located in Sparks, Nevada (Just north of Reno) is a 1990 Honda VFR400 NC30. Currently registered and titled in Nevada, this Japan market bike looks quite good but carries some rash and “runs hot” at stoplights. This could be quite an issue if it isn’t as simple as the need for a new thermostat that the seller is claiming. One question to ask yourself is, if the problem is so easy to fix, why hasn’t the seller done it before bringing it to market? If indeed the thermostat is to blame, it would be an easy fix to be a genuinely nice, gray-market bike. The ad doesn’t list mileage but mentions new front pads and fork seals, unrestricted black box, ceramic coated OX headers, carbon can, new rear sprocket and smoked windscreen. The ad is a little vague, but with something as rare as this, you only need to let people know it’s on the market and they can contact you from there. If you’re interested, see the Craigslist ad here.
