Review of the 1984 Honda VF 750 F:
Nearly 20 and still in showroom condition
Author: Bob Preston, 2005-10-22|
This is a review of a 1986 Honda VF750-F. The so-called chocolate cam machine. Owned from 1987 by myself.
The bike is a 1986 Honda VF750-F, bought by myself in 1987. It is red white and blue, with main tank colour of red. It had done 12,000 miles when bought, and has now just done 39,000. It has only ever had new exhausts, batteries and tyres. The rear disc is without doubt the biggest you will find on any ´modern´ bike. The paintwork is excellent quality, and countless number of layers.|
The trail angle could do with being a bit more ´fun´, however this helps with straight-lining. Because the bike gets little use, oil changes are essential. Every year regardless, and always use top rate synthetic or semi. The suspension is old hat now, but if the money were available to update them (sympathetically of course), the bike would handle with the best of them.
It has the lovely ´on-view´ V4, in polished black and chrome, which helps make this still one of the nicest looking bikes ever. It still is great fun to ride (I also have a Honda VTR 1000 and a Honda Silver Wing scooter), though I find it performs better if you ´hang off the side´ a bit.
We are old friends, and I feel guilty when it doesn´t get the attention it deserves.If you want a photo, drop me a line.
