VF500 Interceptor

Anyone have any experience with these? Friend of mine got a great deal on one. New tires are getting put on it this week and I might be able to pick it up for what he's got into it.


Bike looks pretty clean, haven't scene it in person, but have scene pics from all angles. All stock, with the exception of kerker pipes. Looks to have been very lightly laid down on the right side. Very light scratches on the very edge of the fairing and clutch cover is lightly scratched.

My understanding is they can be a bit tough to work on and parts can be hard to come by, but by all reviews if they're in decent shape they sound like fun little bikes.

I'd like to find something light and fun to take out now and than, as well as being able to slowly restore it to perfect condition.

'86 by the way

Gotta see some shots of it. Sweet little jewel of a motor.

These are great bikes (im my opinion) and if you can pick it up for a reasonable price, I would say go for it. I had a '83 750 Interceptor and have thought about getting back on a new one for years. That color scheme is my favorite too.
I also had a V30 Magna and that motor is strong and light. I am not sure about parts though. I would doubt (being a Honda) it would ever have many major motor problems.

Best of luck.

Love the V4 motors!
My Honda V65 Magna now has 46k on it and took the 450 miles ridden over the past weekend without missing a beet!
