Offered for sale without reserve is a restore-able 1985 Honda VF1000R. I purchased this bike a couple years ago, titled it in my name and have decided to sell it rather than restore it. (I used the fuel tank and front fender on a different 1985 VF1000R I restored for myself.)  The tank may be repairable but it is dented and someone tried to use compressed air and severely bulged it. The front fender and the bracket across the top are missing as is the gas cap. The rear tail light filler is broken, the lower half is missing and the left side grill is missing (I am including a spare right side so hopefully a trade can be arranged.) The shifter functions and the bike goes into all the gears but it is corroded where the shaft exits the sprocket cover on the left side. The seat cover is torn and will have to be recovered / replaced. The seat cowl and strap are both gone. The right upper faring has a cracked spot and the lower has a burned spot (shown in the images) both are repairable and may have been caused in a tip over incident (the brake lever and foot peg are not damaged.) Other than these items the bike appears to be intact but no promises or statements are made regarding the completeness of this bike so please examine the pictures closely and I will answer any questions to the best of my ability. As shown in the images this bike has corrosion on the engine covers and the paint on the frame has some surface rust (cleaning and repainting or powder-coating the corroded parts will return them to satisfactory condition. The frame has it's original date/VIN tag on the right side and the nose of the frame is stamped with the correct matching VIN. The same key works in the ignition and helmet lock.
Now for the good news, the bike appears to have 12,427 original miles as shown on the odometer since that is what it indicates and it appears to be the original dash (the prior title listed 12,427 as well.) Once I decided not to restore this myself I changed the oil and filter and the engine ran excellent on a jumper battery and my shop fuel tank. The cams sounded fine (although I did not remove either cam cover to examine them.) I topped off the cooling system with a 50/50 antifreeze mix and brought the engine up to operating temperature as shown on the gauge. I removed the front brake calipers and freed them up then bled the front brakes so they work. The tires hold air but are old and will need to be replaced. The original "snowflake" wheels spin straight and true. This bike has not been ridden by me and is being sold with only the above known to be true. 
The buyer is responsible for shipping arrangements and costs (although if arrangements are made before the sale is done I will consider meeting the buyer partway for  fuel and/or hotel cost depending on the distance since I am now retired.) Other than the indicated $500.00 paypal deposit the balance due payment is due upon delivery in cash and no checks (personal/bank or cashiers) will be accepted.

I installed a pair of unpainted / original wheels for this listing.
