1986 Honda VF1000R

The Honda VF1000R is considered by many to be the best of the now classic VF1000 model line produced by Honda between 1984 and 1988, the VF1000R was the first of the VF line to have gear driven cams (as opposed to the chain driven cams on previous generations) and was also the first to have a horsepower rating over 120.

Honda originally produced the VF1000 motorcycles as road legal showcases for their racing technologies, the bikes were fitted with advanced 998cc V4 engines, rigid rectangular section pipe frames, dual floating discs on the front and racing-style piston callipers on the rear, adjustable clutch and front brake levers, a full fibreglass aero-fairing, aluminium wheels with quick-release axle holders and Pro-Link rear suspension with adjustable, braced front forks.

From a performance perspective, the Honda VF1000R was a revelation. The 125hp was too much for a significant number of riders and as a result, many of the bikes were wrecked or written off relatively early in their lives. The surviving bikes are seeing a surge in popularity and models like this 1986 VF100R are now officially vintage, further adding to their value so long as their condition is good and they’ve been well maintained.

Due to its gear operated cams the VF1000R is probably a better choice than the earlier chain driven cam models and a well-cared for example like this can still throw down with modern sportbikes and even embarrass them in the right hands. The model you see pictured here is due to be auctioned at the Las Vegas Motorcycle Auction on the 9th of January 2014 and has an estimated value of $6,000 to $8,000 USD, making it a fantastic alternative to a fast-depreciating modern litre bike.

Honda VF1000R by Icon | Bike EXIF

The guys at Icon Motosports have a predilection for 80s Hondas. “The first VFR is arguably the pinnacle of that era,” they note. “Not pinnacle in that it’s a great bike—it most certainly is not. It’s more in relation to style … thick and saucy, with a throaty smoker’s cough.”

This 1986 Honda VF1000R is one of three custom builds created to spearhead the launch of the Icon 1000 range of apparel. And there’s a method to Icon’s madness.

In stock form, the Honda VF1000R was a heavy machine, tipping the scales at over 530 lbs. But it was built with an eye to race homologation, especially for the endurance classes, and had a strong 130 hp motor. Contemporary tests put top speed at a whisker under 150 mph and the bike could beat the 11-second quarter mile mark. The ideal canvas, then, for Icon to create a post-apocalyptic survival machine.

A refreshing sense of irreverence permeates this VF1000R, from the dirt tire at the front—actually a Continental offroad rear tire—to the hand lettered “Magnificent Bastard” moniker on the Airtech tail unit.

The mods are a mix of the sublime and ridiculous, from Leo Vince GP Pro pipes to the CB radio nestling under the instruments. The seat is a Yoshimura Tornado item and a pair of PIAA spots are mounted onto a custom-built frame sitting outside what is left of the fairing. The paint is the dirtiest of dirty whites, as pure as the driven snow.

‘Magnificent Bastard’ sure as hell isn’t going to win an AMD Championship award. But it’s ten times more interesting than most show bikes—and it doesn’t even have pipewrap or Firestones.
