    1993 vfr - $900

    Screen Shot 2021-06-22 at 8.41.10 PM.png
    Saw this on my local Marketplace.
    Ad reads:
    Bike hasn't been ridden in 5-6 years. Naked, so fun to ride. Fast too. Needs work but easy for the right person. You could put collector plates on the thing. I have the farings for it too.

    I'm quite tempted...

      Don't think you can go wrong for $900 with that.

      Well, unless you spend $900 to stuck it in the back of a shop to trip around for years. But somthing tells me you wouldn't have that issue.
      Don't spend money and buy, spend time and learn.

          the hawk isn't a good touring bike, but that one is.

          decent fairings are rare, almost unobtainable.

              I suspect the fairing were removed either a) because the owner wanted to keep them pristine (unlikely) or b) because they were trashed and would no longer stay on (likely)
              I don't need another project though...

                  Well the seller read my message this morning and hasn't responded so nothing to do any way.
                  I'm getting tired of folks who can't even be bother to say respond, even if it's "come look at it" or "it's pending".
                  About a week ago a guy was selling an 1982 XT250 for $200, I responded less than an hour after it was listed and not once did the seller acknowledge my message.

                      I've had excellent luck selling and a few times buying too but recently I've noticed that people have become just non-responsive.
                      No sweat as I really want to spend my money on a trials bike

                        Last few times i tried to sell i was inundated with ridiculous low ball offers that end in "cash" and ridiculous trades for shit that no one wants. It was very frustrating. I ended up selling the van and the bike off of facebook but the hassle factor was way high for my patience level.

                        Maybe people on facebook are smarter in your area, here not so much.

                          “Bro,will you take $400 cash,a lawnmower that just needs belts and blades and a sack of New York Purple Diesel for your dirt bike?” I hate them. I hate them so,so,so,so,so much. The only dudes locally I will sell bikes and fishing gear to are Brazilians. Straight up. Dudes don’t haggle and peel off Bennies with no BS. It might take some interpretation to work with them on the phone or texts but they don’t waste time like locally born yahoos.



                          OEM plastic in good shape for those is hella hard to find. There are some pieces like the little bit that attaches to the side stand that are near impossible. It was great when Honda considered details like that in bikes but not so great that it’s been 30 years.


                          That’s a really good bike when in fine form BUT I caution that it’s very,very easy to spend more on that than buying a 90-93 or a much better 94-97 in solid condition for $2500 or even though I don’t like them as much,get a 98-00 VFR800 and enjoy that fuel injected life rather than dicking with V4 carbs. I have solid V4 technique but many struggle with it and yeah,there are a lot of fasteners including brittle tabs to deal with every time you need to take a peek at the carbs.

                          My 96 is so clean I only ride it on absolutely perfect days and even then remove the bodywork and wash everything. Granted,Honda build quality was at its peak but it still looks just a couple years old underneath. What’s it worth though? $3000 tops to someone who would just have to have a nice VFR? Probably wouldn’t be an easy sale at that but still,call it $3000. $900 for that VFR plus some combination of tires,chain and sprockets,brake pads,fork seals and you get damn close to a solid or quite nice example fast. That’s the sucky thing about bikes of a certain age,they’re not worth it to restore so they end up going from bottom feeder to bottom feeder to scrap.

                          I really do make sure that no part of it gets funky:

                            I mean if they respond and the plastic isn't junk it would be hard to say no.

                              Holy moly folks, I have the best wife ever. I mentioned the VFR for sale, said I was really tempted. Showed her the pic and and an example.
                              Her words “go for it!”
                              She is the literal best!
