1989 Honda VFR750F-K
(Featured 3rd May 2014)
Sellers original description:
I have decided to sell one of the bikes from my modest collection of modern classic m/cycles to help fund and free up garage space for a Honda VTR1000SP-Y more commonly known as the SP-1.
My VFR has hardly been used since the day it was purchased new in 1989. A truly stunning example that I can say with some confidence is a "showroom" example. I appreciate this is a bold statement to make though I am confident if you were to come and view my bike you would whole heartedly agree. I have purposely taken as many photos as possible so you may evaluate the condition for yourself.
Bike is totally standard and unmolested apart from the brake & clutch lines/hoses that have been replaced with Goodridge. Both front and rear tyres have also been replaced as the rubber on the originals was a little hard due to age.
There are a small number of marks/items worth mentioning to be 100% accurate. The left-hand mirror has a small scuff/scratch on the outer edge most likely caused from moving in and out of the garage (refer to photos). The left-hand exhaust silencer has a shallow push/indentation (refer to photos) though the paint/finish is unmarked and there are no scratches. A pin-head size stone chip on the front mudguard left-hand side and another on the pillion grab rail. The right-hand section of the belly-pan is slightly distorted. In my opinion this was caused from a portable heater/radiator being positioned slightly too close to the bike. The distortion is slight in my opinion and not that obvious unless pointed out. I have taken a photo of the belly-pan to show this though as it is minor you will need to enlarge the photo and study closely. Put aside these marks the bike really is a stunning example and I truly believe any collector or enthusiast would be extremely happy with their purchase.
