Here we have another Honda VR1000R up for grabs on RSBFS. These show up from time to time in various conditions. They are an important bike in Honda’s sportbike history and are a must if you’re a serious Honda collector.
The power in these units comes from a V-4 that also has a storied history in the Honda line. The dual overhead cam, four valve per cylinder V-4 was the motor in the Interceptor and variations appeared in the mega-bad ass RC30 and has been around all the way to the VFR800. They are great motors.
Here’s the seller’s words-
Rare, clean 1985 Honda VF1000R. Excellent condition for 28 years old, some dings and scratches. Galfer s.s. lines all around. All fluids replaced and serviced. Daugherty Motorsports F2 wheel conversion, F$i shock, Li Ion Battery. Michelin Sport Radials. New EBC pads, new windscreen, new Sunstar chain and sprockets. Comes with all original equipment and can be converted to stock fairly easily.
Few more pics-
The seller highlights some of the minor mods including the conversion to F2 rims, which would give you a few more tire choices. The seller also notes that all the original parts are available if you want to convert back to stock. Always a nice option if you want it. Otherwise looks like a nice bike that would still be great to ride!
If you want a VF1000R, you should give this one a look. To do so, make the jump!
