Click here for an CycleVIN Motorcycle History Report on this Honda Interceptor VF500F project. Additional photos are available here for your perusal.

The smallest of the Interceptors, the VF500 is claimed by some to be the best, thanks to absolutely incredible handling. The 500cc engine was a mutt of Honda parts – the bottom end from the non-US VF400F combined with two top ends from the VT250. This got you 70 horsepower, enough for 128 miles per hour through the 6 speed transmission. Redline was at an impressive 12K, and the entire package weighed about 440 pounds when ready to roll.

In their first ride review, Cycle World summed up the baby Interceptor by saying: “a bike that looks this good, handles this well, has such a wonderful engine and costs no more than its competitors is more than just a “nice bike.” It’s damn near irresistible.”

This example is VIN: JH2PC1208GM205116, Engine #: PC12E-2205132.

The odometer shows 9,182 miles.

It has been on display for roughly 10 years. In preparation for the listing, the seller had us prove that it runs on starter fluid – Alex gave it a once-over and he notes that it currently runs on one cylinder and is leaking gas. It will need a carb rebuild, the throttle is stuck closed, the fuel line has been disconnected, the forks leak, the clutch master cylinder needs a rebuild, the rear brake lever is stuck, and the gas tank will need to be lined.

Modifications:
Aftermarket color-matched lower fairings.

Scott grips.

Aftermarket turn signals.


Reflective tape.

Dark tint windscreen.
