A buddy of mine just picked up a mid 80's Honda VF700S that looks just like this.... After we were done making fun of him we ripped it apart. Cut the tail, lost plastics, swapped bars, lights etc. And somehow, it's looking pretty awesome :huh And weighing a lot less. Its has bits that are ahead of it's time. Mono shock, shaft drive, gear display etc. Surprised the hell out of me. Not a fan of the drum rear though..... Which got me thinking. I've owned 18 motorcycles. KTM, Buell, Honda, Suzuki, Yamaha..... I went threw a few 70's honda CB's during the "cafe" frenzy and had a good time w/ them. Everything else was 2000 and up. I completely skipped the 80's and 90's. Always thinking nothing attractive came from those 2 moto decades. But as tastes often do, change, I'm finding an odd appeal in them lately. And love the ballpark $1000-$1500 pricetag I see on many of them on craigslist. Started looking and found rides like these... Honda Nighthawk 700S Honda CB100 Super 4 What am I missing? I want to expand my bike knowledge and maybe put a new project in the garage.
