Four Gear Drive Cams: All Original 1984 Honda VF1000R

This is from the site Bring a Trailer (https://bringatrailer.com/) ...

This 1984 Honda VF1000R (VIN SC162002340) looks great and is said to have just 11,484 miles. A Euro import model, official US sales wouldn’t begin until the following model year. Though based on the standard VF1000, bodywork was entirely different, suspension heavily re-worked, and the 998cc V4 gained an exotic, race-bred gear drive for its four individual cams. Though a bit heavy and rather expensive when new, these bikes offered excellent, stable handling, tons of power, sharp styling, and a good degree of exclusivity as well. US models had 125 HP, though this Paris-sourced example should make three less–still enough for a sub 11-second quarter mile time. Said to be all-original apart from the exhaust, the seller further claims perfect running condition. Find it here on eBay in West Tisbury, Massachusetts for $9,500 OBO. Special thanks to BaT reader AMF for this submission.
