Show us some pictures of your XLV in travelling modus, @Bell driver !
Where are all the XLV750R riders these days? Extinct?
Took Granny II to work today. Hurray for hurricane Ophelia which is clashing on the Irish coast, propelling sun & mild 20oC temperatures in our direction...
Hi everyone, just wondered what's the value of a nice black engined, golden wheeled XLV750R in UK? It's a 1986 registered running bike, I've seen video of it starting in deep snow, 41 kkm on the clock. I'm not sure if it's worth importing, there is cost of delivery and registering with DVLA on top of the purchase price.
Looks like €3500 to me.
Thanks, do you think it would be similar value in UK, shall we say £3200?

Old Honda cars & bikes wanted
Agree with @Bell driver , @StartswithH . My bike (featured in the pics above) is a '85 registered, looks less tidy than the bike you are aiming on, but... I've got it valued by an Honda classic expert for € 4.500,- mainly because its fully original and not- restorated. Dutch prices are in general about 15-20% higher than German prices due to taxes.
Please note: my bike was valued in... 2002! A good and tidy XLV750R is nowadays an investment if you can lay your hands on it for the right price.
Thanks Two Plugs, now if you watch that video from the link I've posted, do you think this XLV looks original? One of my friends looked at it and said that the bike looks repeated, which significantly reduces her value. I thought myself that the black paint on top of fuel tank is a bit matt, but took it for granted. Could you please have a look and say what you think? I'll also put some more pictures here.
Looks resprayed I meant, not repeated, bless autocorrect
I've googled them on the net, couldn't find another in that colour scheme
It does look like it's been resprayed.
That's the OEM French paint.
Oh, so it does have proper colours...
Does respray really lower the value by a large margin?
Are you by any chance on the www.hondayoungtimer.de forum too?
@StartswithH Silver was one of the original colours for the French and Italian market. However, blue and red (mine) have been sold far more often; making the silver XLV one of the rarest of this model. Only a tricolour HRC Limited is more rare (only 500pc build). Bike looks to be repainted, which doesn't have to be a bad thing; however, the red line separating the silver- and black part on the fueltank looks a tad to wide. Attached all tree original colours of the 1985 black- engined XLV:
Shortcut: if the bike runs good, it does has a low mileage, just go for it. Check when the oil of the shaft drive was replaced. But the bike looks to be in an excellent shape, worth the asking price.

Nanu, heisst das eine ja oder ene nein.
