I have been lurking around for a month or so and thought I should start a post on my VF500F restoration. Going to be a long road but have to start somewhere. Bought it off Craigslist for $400.00 and broke several of my rules for buying used bikes. I took a total gamble on this bike but I have always wanted one since working at a Honda dealer from 1984 -1988. I actually put several of these VF's together new out of the box. I also put together and rode every Interceptor built between 1983 and 1988 except the unicorn VF1000R. I remember when the 86 VF500F came out I thought they "ruined" the look of it over the 84-85 models. I hated the black wheels and red forks! So without further ado the journey begins!
