Ideas on a vfr1000r

Yo, what's up motohoustoians? I was thinking of picking up a vfr1000r from the 80's. It runs, drives and looks like it's in a pretty good condition it also has about 15k original miles, how much do you think it's worth if it's perfectly running with good paint and plastics?

I think Mancuso had one in fairly good condition last year. Nothing wrong with a classic VFR, if you are a bike collector.

It is a solid bike. I've seen them go anywhere from 2.5 - 4K. Check out the VFR World forums..

offer 2.5 but dont insult the seller. take it to Motorcycles Unlimited and get a compression & leakdown (and take that off the asking price) this should immediatley tell you if the seller is confident in his machine or if he's weary of having a reputable shop thoroughly inspect his ride that should speak for itself.
