Honda Interceptor description

Up for sale is my refurbished and ready to ride 1986 Honda VFR700F Interceptor. Original condition with a few desirable upgrades in gorgeous red, white & blue. 25,050 miles, mechanically and cosmetically inspected, cleaned, updated, replaced, repaired whatever needed attention was accomplished. This is an original-condition survivor Interceptor in excellent condition with only a few minor flaws. No issues, no excuses, no disappointments. The paint is gorgeous, the mechanics are correct, the tank is rust-free inside. The bike starts and runs perfectly hot or cold.

This second generation Interceptor is historically significant in Honda's sport bike history, was ahead of it's time, and combines the 11,500 RPM redline of a smaller displacement engine with the torque of a 700. The V4 is a jewel of engineering and has a sound and feel unmatched by inline four cylinder engines. These are unique bikes and will never lose a dime of value.

My hobby is finding and returning these great second generation Interceptors to the road and back into the hands of new owners who appreciate their performance, beauty and historical significance and will care for them into the future. Please visit my website for more on what I do: V4Dreams (dot com)

The bike is located in Antioch IL, north of Chicago near the WI border. I can deliver the bike at no charge within 100 driving miles of Antioch IL via open trailer, or farther by arrangement. If you're able, please come by and inspect the bike in person. Sorry, no test rides. I have a clear and clean IL title in my name with no issues. Thanks for looking.

The Honda Collection Halls in Motegi

Fri, 14 Oct 2011

I thought you may have to be from a certain era to enjoy the Honda Collection Halls in Motegi but I was wrong. This immaculate museum has hundreds of race and road bikes on display starting with the first ever (wooden) motorcycle built right up to the amazing machines Pedrosa and co are campaigning this year. Being part of the Honda owned Motegi Twin Ring circuit complex, I was expecting it to be a Honda only zone so was amazed to see lots of iconic bikes from other manufacturers also on display.

With the two test riders coming forward to act as replacement riders for the injured Rossi and Aoyama, it brought back memories of the days when the grid would be gifted with wildcard riders from the respective countries. The Japanese rounds were always attended by some of the top guys with experience of the 500GP and MotoGP bikes, through racing them in their domestic championships. What resulted was getting to witness the exciting and talented Japanese riders, and bring new riders to the attention of the teams.
