1983 Honda VF750F Interceptor
A great, fun, reliable bike to own and ride
When purchased, I had to replace the fork seals, so I added progressives springs/shocks for enhanced performance.
The seat was worn with one small tear.
The chain and sprockets have been replaced.
The tires front and back have been replaced.
Right now I'm experiencing minor electrical problems. I think it's a fuse problem.
The windscreen is a windscreen in name only as it screens minimal wind.
Brake pads are to be replaced next week.
Being 6' 2" tall, I may be too tall for this bike, so it is a little uncomfortable for long rides.
I love the "outdated" performance of the bike. I'm 59 years of age and I don't need a sport bike with tons of power.
This bike's reliability is fantastic. I bought it in 2004, rode it for two years, gave it to my son, who stored it outside for three years and he gave it back to me.
After being exposed to the elements (with a small cover) it sustained some minor wear and tear, but is solid as a rock even after all these years.
The bike is quick enough for a 59 year old person such as myself.
What a hoot to ride!!!
Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes

Hello, I happen to own a 1984 Honda FV700F Interceptor that I purchased in 1985. The motorcycle was not prepped and it was stored for years at a friend's house. When the gas prices went up, I started using it again. Unfortunately, the diaphragms in the carbs went bad and had to be replaced. Once replaced, and with a new battery, the bike started right up and runs just as good as when I stored it 5 years before. I agree that these bikes were made to be very reliable.
