FS: 1984 Honda VF500F – JH2PC1202EM002381 – 13,360 mi – $4999.00

This lovely Honda Interceptor 500 has only had 3 owners in its life.  It had been sitting in a corner of the garage with owner number 2 since 1987.  It was properly stored, 0 rust in tank, but it still needed some love.  It was revived by a father and son team!   They had SUB moto service go through the cabs and get them back into proper running condition, Then,they went and changed all fluids, oil and filter were replaced, new fuel lines and filter, along with full brake rebuild, new pads and new tires.  This bike runs like a top, it also comes with the original owners manual, tool kit and a Honda factory service manual.    Come grab this one while it lasts.

Some notes from a ride review;

Once in a lifetime, everyone happens on something they know is absolutely perfect for them. What that is differs from person to person, but for me, it was my 1984 Honda 500 Interceptor. Since that day, I have not, even once, encountered a machine so close to perfection as that little bike. Really, the Interceptor was poetry in motion and I regret to this day not keeping it.

I liked the 750 Interceptor but when the 500 came out, all the bike magazines raved about it. The theme was, “Less is More,” and that sums up the 500. It was not a downsized 750; rather it was a slightly upsized VF400F from Japan. The actual size of the bike was the same (more on that later) but it had a couple of innovations that were really special: the most obvious was the box section tube perimeter frame.     I truly regret selling that bike since I have not since that day ridden a bike that was so good. Everything was just so perfectly balanced in the 500 Interceptor. It was just so fun to ride and looked so cool. It was also as reliable as fence post and very easy to live with  because the V-4 was so good in traffic. I probably couldn’t ride in comfortably at my age but it sure is fun to reminisce. This bike was a Honda product and in the entire time I had it, the bike was flawless. That is the reason I still buy Honda products today.
