1982 and 1983 Honda Magnas V45and V65

Recommended Posts

Honda introduced the model in 82 with the V45 Magna adding race bike technology to the cruiser class. In 83 things got serious with the intro of the V65 Magna which held the title of "quickest" for a time. Tested by the famed "Pee Wee" Gleason the V65 managed an incredible drag strip ET of 10.84 seconds at just a touch under 125 MPH. Both variants received critical acclaim in their day. The 82 is a Model VF750C, the 83 a Model VF1100C. Both are 1st year models and get ready for this, the V45 has 1210 miles, the V65 just 1043. Those are not misprints, both are nearly brand spankin new 1 owner bikes. Both are important in the pages of motorcycle history which is a nice backup to ownership over time. They were both kept in a climate controlled office setting for the last 25+ years and didn't see freezing or excessively hot temps. I've simply washed them once removed from their "interment" and charged the batteries enough to turn them over. They will need new brake/clutch fluid and flush, flush the fuel system, give em a new battery and go out for a ride. If I do that, make them road-ready, the price will be higher. I wish to sell them as a pair for $4,850. The V65 is worth nearly that as-is. This is an exceptional find on 2 significant Honda models. I don't expect I'll have them very long. The pics are huge so download and zoom in, and others will be below as replies.
