    I did like the fairings, $3000 is not a bad price considering the mileage, condition and extras you got. Great looking bike

    Very interesting read on the early V4's
    I remember reading about them in the 80's with all their cam problems and assumed it was just badly made cams
    I remember the old cams in my 70's race bikes and thought the cams could have been better machined
    At the time I think I had Webb cam rework them, made a big difference

    That romance didn't last long ! :frown-new:

    Bike appeared in fine condition; but for $3K, who prefers an old, clunky, cam-destroying '83-'85 VF to a much-improved '86/'87 VFR going forabout the same price ?? Really ?? :crazy:

    And Gen 4s seem to be available from $2800-$3500, and they're like from a future planet compared with the VF series. :glee:

    I guess you didn't view the Craigslist ad since he is asking $3600 for it now. That price sure is funny and gave me a good chuckle this morning.

    Having owned a 1985 Honda Interceptor I'm still in love with that bike. I would still buy a first generation bike. They are the nicest model of V4 engine bike Honda has ever made.

    Allyance, I get all misty eyed when I look at your 750-- had the exact model and color but an 84.
    Man did I have a ball on that bike also my first street bike.

    Nice find! When's the last time you were as excited as scoring that purchase? Beautiful bike, I think that fairing could easily grow on me.

    One of these days I will find the $$ and parts to put it back the original color. I bought all the body work to get a good tank, that how it ended up looking like an 84.
