Amazing VFR Deal

Holy cow the deal of the century, why buy new when you can buy 15 year old technology for the same money?!

I do admit that for a mid 1980's streetbike, it is quite pretty. SSSA, Pretty wheels, nice enough looking fairings, I even like the white. However, unless this thing is in showroom shape and has less than 500 miles on it, it is not worth $6500. VFRs hold their value but you could get a 2004 VFR with comparable miles for about the same amount of money. I love the look of the 2003+ VFR, I think Spetsnaz's Interceptor is one of the prettiest bikes on the street

Just beautiful, what kills me though is the 800cc displacement, it should be a literbike. The VTEC, Just not a good idea on a bike. Lastly, I'd like it to be a little sportier, better suspension, more aggressive riding position, etc. But beautiful bike all around.
