Nick Mason's Motorbike up for Sale!

The Honda VF500FII E was first imported in March 1984 and was in fact discontinued just over a year later in April 1985 as it failed to establish much of a following. This particular bike was registered mid-way through its run in August. The bike was billed as a sports middleweight, but the 498cc liquid-cooled DOHC engine was in reality a larger version of the VF400F that had appeared here a year earlier. The motor was placed in a new chassis using square section tubing rolling along on a 16-inch front and 18-inch rear Comstar wheels. The braced front forks were air-assisted as was the rear Pro-link suspension.

The bike was originally offered in a red or blue colour scheme, but this particular machine was painted in a pink colour scheme by its second owner Nick Mason, drummer with the iconic band Pink Floyd who bought it in 1987. Although best known for his love of classic racing cars, he has always had a motorcycle or two for transport in and around the capital where both his home and business interest are located. In his ownership for nine years before being sold to the vendor the bike shows a mileage of 12,000 which is believed to be genuine.

The bike comes with documentation to support its provenance and in full running condition with a current MOT .

Estimate: 1,500 - 2,500

The cambridge vintage sale by Cheffins takes place on 25th April.
