Click here for an CycleVIN Motorcycle History Report on this 1985 Honda VF1000R. Additional photos are available here for your perusal.
When it was released, the VF1000R was a bit of a revelation: it was Honda’s flagship, designed to showcase what the Japanese firm was capable of.
It was also a huge tease to US riders, because it was initially only released in Europe only – America got the VF1000F instead, which was designed to be more of a touring bike. The R was Honda’s first road bike to benefit from gear-driven cams.
Manufactured in March of 1985, this example is VIN: JH2SC160XFM000769.
The seller has owned the bike for one year, during which time he has ridden it for approximately 450 track miles. The odometer shows 16,862 miles.
Per the seller, the bike has had a carburetor service, an oil and oil filter change, and a brake fluid flush. Additionally, the fork oil has been replaced and the rear shock has been filled to 40 PSI.
Accordingly, he reports that there are “no mechanical issues whatsoever, bike has been gone through — just needs tires.”
The seller states that this VF1000R is completely stock.
