  2. They will look awesome mounted up. 👍
  3. Those are gonna' look good, Gamble. I've never had to replace the valve cover gaskets, and always install the clutch/alternator gaskets dry. No issues yet.
  4. The fairing: seems to be missing the center mounting screw hole (in the turn signal area), also the side fairing aero openings "seem" to be more rounded (but hard to tell in the photo), which is indicative of a replacement fairing, either Crites (fiberglass) or Airtech (ABS?). You'll determine originality by seeing if there's duct mounting fittings and sound deadening on the backside. Also, because the chin point isn't fastened, there may not be clip brackets in place, also indicative of aftermarket fairings. Non-original fairings are a major minus. The OEM fairings are ABS. The headlight fairing is suspect because the headlight isn't fitting properly. The windscreen also looks non-original. You'll want to inquire about the fairing infill panels which fit between the fuel tank and side fairings, right & left. These are getting very difficult to source. They will be blue on this '87 700 F2. as will the "square" instruments. Test that the engine is free by selecting a higher gear and rolling the back tire forward. I don't know what you want this bike to be for you, but that will determine what you're priorities are. Remember, a cheap vintage vehicle can be the most expensive route to a nice one.
  5. This bike has no estimated value. It's worth whatever the seller can get someone to pay. The reason is that there's too many unknowns. You mention 50K miles. That would be a deal-killer for me because there's too many other 2d-gens out there with 20-30K miles. Some other considerations; those original mufflers are hard to find in excellent condition, so their condition is an important factor, the headlight and side fairings don't appear to be original; if they're not Honda parts, that's a major minus. That extra mirror is weird. Look at the side engine covers (clutch and alternator) for accident evidence but that's quite common to find after so many years. There's no seat cowl pictured; hard to find. The chin fairing clips are not in place; hard to find. I assume everything needs going through on projects that I find, so that's a given...brakes, carbs, valve adj., electrical, etc. Gas tank interiors can often be saved, but not always. On a bike like this, I assume there's a 50/50 chance that it will end up being a parts bike and go from there. BTW, if the engine doesn't turn over, run away, it's not worth it. The seat cowl and center stand were dealer options. Just my $.02. Nice old Hondas, there! Joe in IL V4 Dreams (.com) ...and here's some inspiration:

    An '86 VFR750F, 11,000 miles, all original, runs as good as it looks.
