Honda Interceptor description

I have a 1985 Honda VF1000R project that I have lost interest in.  I have title, but still in previous owners name. I have $1,200 into it, but would accept a 'Best Offer'.  Try me, you may be surprised. 
If you are familiar with these bikes, you know how unique and advanced it was for 1985, but so heavy, it could not compete against the other race bikes of the time.  
It might be worth more being parted out, but I dont want to mess with the effort that it would involve.  Comes with a service manual.  

Not in running condition, but close. I have not performed a compression or leak down test.  Carbs have been rebuilt and installed. 
Miles on ODO may not be representative of the bike, since it came in a box of parts when I bought it. Previous owner has several of these bikes, so ODO could have come from any other them.
Missing front plastics/fairing pieces and other misc bits.
Tank is solid with very light surface rust on inside, on spot welds. 
Seat is in great condition and not faded.  No holes.
I do not have the bump-cushion for the rear cowl.
If you want a specific picture or have a question, please feel free to ask. 
Thank you

Glen Richards back with Embassy Racing

Wed, 27 Oct 2010

One of the unsung heroes of the BSB paddock over the past few seasons, has to be 2010 Superstock 1000 runner up Glen Richards. A nasty tumble in at the Brands Hatch opener lead to four DNFs, but once back on track he pushed the dominant BMWs hard, finishing on the podium eight times. While many were trading their grannies to fund new S1000RRs, Richards kept the faith and rode the wheels off his Padgett’s Honda Fireblade.

Dakar Begins This Sunday!

Thu, 02 Jan 2014

Dakar is an international, bad-ass, multi-day off-road event and if you’re not a fan you should be. Crossing the borders of Argentina, Bolivia and Chile the route takes motorcycle and ATV competitors through more than 5400 miles of extreme riding conditions. Competing cars and trucks go even farther.

Day 9 Dakar 2014: Coma Wins, Increases Overall Lead

Tue, 14 Jan 2014

The ninth stage took the field to the northernmost point of this year’s Dakar. The riders descended from yesterday’s plateau through the Atacama desert towards the Pacific Ocean. Sand and dunes challenged the athletes especially in the final third of the stage, demanding excellent navigation skills.
