Formerly the property of World Champion Wayne Gardner
1986 Honda VF1000R
Frame no. SC162 200 400
One of only 530 VF1000Rs delivered new to Europe in 1986, this example was first owned by Wayne Gardner, winner of the 500cc World Championship for Honda in 1987, and is finished in the colours of Rothmans, the Japanese company's headline sponsor at that time. We are advised by the current vendor, a private collector who once owned some 50 machines, that it incorporates various modifications intended to improve performance. These include a modified air box and altered carburettor jetting; thinner cylinder head gasket for a compression ratio of 11.0:1 (standard 10.5:1) and a modified exhaust system. The result is a maximum power output of around 125bhp (up from 100bhp). A total of only 31,000 kilometres is recorded on the odometer and the machine was last serviced at 29,400 kilometres. Works carried out in recent years include renewing the cooling system O-rings; professionally cleaning and sealing the fuel tank; overhauling the brakes and ultrasonically cleaning the carburettors, plus the usual changes of spark plugs, fluids and filters. The battery, DID chain and Bridgestone BT45 tyres are relatively new. The machine is offered with sundry invoices and Swiss Carte Grise recording Wayne Gardner as owner.

Footnotes

  • Anciennement propriété du Champion du Monde Wayne Gardner
    Honda VF1000 R 1986
    Cadre no: SC162 200 400

    Une des 350 VF1000 R livrées neuves en Europe en 1986, cet exemplaire qui fut d'abord la propriété de Wayne Gardner, vainqueur du Championnat du Monde 500 cm3 pour Honda en 1987, porte les couleurs de Rothmans, principal sponsor de la firme japonaise à l'époque. Nous savons par l'actuel vendeur, collectionneur privé qui posséda jusqu'à 50 machines, qu'elle comporte diverses modifications visant à l'amélioration des performances : boîte à air modifiée et gicleurs de carburateurs différents, joint de culasse plus mince pour obtenir un rapport de compression de 11 :1 (10,5 :1 standard), et nouvel échappement. Le moteur arrive ainsi à 125 ch (au lieu de 100 initialement). Le compteur a enregistré au total 31 000 km et la moto a bénéficié d'un entretien à 29 400 km. Les travaux récemment effectués ont concerné les joints toriques du système de refroidissement, le nettoyage et l'étanchéité du réservoir effectués par un professionnel, la réfection des freins et le nettoyage par ultrasons des carburateurs plus le remplacement habituel des bougies, des fluides et des filtres. La batterie, la chaîne DID et les pneus Bridgestone BT45 sont assez récents. La machine est offerte avec un dossier de factures et la carte grise suisse indiquant le nom de Wayne Gardner.
