'84 VF750F Interceptor i bought off a coworker for $700. $40 in ebay parts and 4 hours, i had it running and riding. a $60 complete carb set (swapping the front diaphragms out of my rear pair) and it purred like a kitten.

it rode ok. sounded good. had very good power....

but the riding position was crap. legs tucked up, but forward. bars stretched out to far to the front. didn't fit me. seat height was uncomfortable with the pegs. rode it till i got my ZX7 and sold it for $1200.
I had a 91 VFR,it wallowed in corners,took too long to do a simple oil change,odd seating position,too much bodywork in general and brittle to boot. It looked and sounded neat and was sold quickly.
