1985 Honda VF750F Interceptor


Love it


Fork seals (who cares).

I put on the Dave Dodge oil mod for the cams, but it may not have needed it.

General Comments:

This thing is in near showroom condition, and is a blast to drive and very comfortable. Looks retro cool, and always gets comments on how nice a bike it is.

1983 Honda VF750F Interceptor


Great bike with great history


Most of the things my bike needed were basic consumables:

Fork seals needed replacing.

Front brake pads needed replacing (because of leaking fork seals).

Starter clutch needed springs replaced (easy job).

Seat needed recovering.


General Comments:

The handling on this bike is FANTASTIC! Especially after changing over to RADIAL tires (Had to swap in a 17" rear rim to make the switch). It is well balanced, has an excellent riding position, and you would never know it's almost 500lbs in weight.

This bike is pretty quick. Sure, there are other bikes out there that are much faster (now) but it's never had a problem getting a grin on my face.

The seating position on the Interceptor is great. I am out 5-6 hours at a time, and I don't get cramped up like others. Wrists aren't killing me either.

There's allot of negative press out there about this model having bad or pitted cams. I can't speak for others, but the cams in my bike are in great shape (especially if you consider it's over 25 years old!). Don't have an oil mod, but DO run 100% synthetic oil.

Overall I've had ZERO problems with the Interceptor and would recommend it to anyone.

Great bike. So great it started the whole sportbike thing.

Two thumbs up.

I would like to know which radials and which wheel kit was used for the switch?
