Hi all. new here, currently own a vfr800 but.
I have currently purchased a 1987 Honda vfr700 interceptor. I'm in the uk so it was imported many years ago.
the person that owned it before me parked it up in his garage in 2010 and never moved it again.
I bought it a few weeks ago for a real real bargain.
I have done some work to it and now have it running perfectly and riding well.
Thanks for all your help

Cannot help you with a price but all bikes are worth more with a current mot on it as then it shows it is roadworthy and has been checked by a 'qualified' person/mechanic.

Sorry to burst your bubble on the VFR700,but it's not a desirable rare motorcycle.All bikes imported into the USA in 1987-ish were restricted to 700cc or under.There is no shortage of roadworthy full power 750 RC24's available for sale in the UK,due to the build quality and the amount sold.In my opinion a 700cc bike is worth no more(probably less) than a 750 machine.
The 1988/1989 model is the best of the RC24,s.More desirable than the earlier 1986/1987 due to many upgrades.
Your bike still needs further recommissioning for the road after its long lay up,and this will hold the price down.
There's a good usable bike there with a bit of work,but it still needs time and money thrown at it.The tyres are at least 8 years old and will have flat spots from standing,brake calipers overhauled.new brake/clutch fluid,cooling system flushed,new coolant,probably a new exhaust system..ect..ect
In my opinion bike as it stands is worth under £500.

Thank you for tour replies. I have done the clutchand brake fluid. Need to flush the cooling system yet. Only paid £100 for it so not to bothered about it being worth loads as it was more as a project for me (my first ever project) enjoying tinkering with it. I am going to do all the work on it and get it back on the road and might just enjoy it for a while. Thanks again

It's a great project bike if you intend to hang on to it. Definitely worth investing a few quid and spare time getting it sorted.
