1996 Honda VF750C Magna
Reliable, fast, stylish, economical, practical
I've owned a few V45 & V65 1980's Sabres & Magnas. This 96 is just as reliable, fun, and powerful as those classic machines.
I bought it for $850 from the car dealership I work at.
The original owner had laid it down at low speed on 1 side & traded it immediately for a car. With only 2800 miles on it, I bought it right away. I fixed the tank, throttle grip, foot peg, put on a new windshield etc. all for about $500. It looks just like it came off the showroom floor.
It's a great all around machine. Commuting, long distance trips, twisties, boulevard cruising.
This 96 Magna combined with an 02 FZ1 & 05 KTM 300 EXC make motorcycling my favorite activity.
Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes

I'm in the market for a 1996 that has 9000 miles on it currently. This comment is to the reviewer, but also anyone who would like to chime in. Here is the question:
How many miles can one expect out of the v45 engine realistically before any serious rebuild must be done?
I see you have accumulated some miles since you purchased the bike - still running strong?
