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

Dealer Expo 2010: Yoshimura R-77 Slip-On Exhaust

Mon, 15 Feb 2010

Yoshimura is playing to the green movement with its new R-77 slip-on canister with integral catalytic converter. The version ready for the 2008-09 Honda CBR1000RR is claimed to be three pounds lighter than stock and offers a big bump in midrange power. Most importantly to the greenies, however, is that it produces fewer emissions than other performance mufflers.

The bike whisperer...

Fri, 10 Feb 2012

We've all been there. The frustration caused when your pride and joy isn't working can cause beautiful relationships to instantly turn frosty. I once spent half an hour in the rain trying to bump start my bike once, before actually checking the kill switch.
