Look closely and you will see something different on this Interstate. Notice the rear bag? Looks a little smaller and a whole bunch cleaner, doesn't it? The original owner didn't like the standard rear top bag. Thought it was big and bulky and didn't like the looks at all. So he put on this totally nice smaller bag. He gave up the intercom when he did this. I have the intercom setup if you wish to use it, you'll just need to install it in one of the bags. He really did a nice job. Notice too the exhaust tips. He put on a tip that has 3 outlets on each side. It used the stock exhaust system so it's still quiet, but it looks great. What is also amazing is that this is the first Valkyrie I have ever seen WITH NO EXHAUST CHROME DISCOLORATION.
Has highway pegs as well as really nice Kuryakyn grips with a palm rest. He put on a beautiful and functional Mustang Saddle driver and passenger seat. Check it out. The driver seat has a built in lower back support; located just where you need it to prevent back fatigue.
Also, don't worry about having to replace tires for a long time. This Interstate has virtually new Avon Radial Venom Tires...front and rear. Less than 1000 miles on these tires. These are expensive and really excellent tires.
And riders will be pleased with a recontoured saddle that drops seat height of the Valkyrie, down to 28.7 inches. And the Valkyrie Interstate achieves that seat height without sacrificing suspension travel or plushness. I am 5' 10" with a 29" inseam and I can easily sit flat footed at a stop light or whenever I stop the bike.
And this owner used MOBIL 1 SYNTHETIC OIL exclusively. This engine is like new.
Honda's 1999 Valkyrie Interstate is a motorcycle that combines a traditional tourer's weather protection and luggage capacity with the Valkyrie's hot-rod six-cylinder performance and wraps it up in a great retro style. To make the Valkyrie Interstate a true king of the road, Honda crafted a fork-mounted fairing with a prominent chrome-case double headlight, topped by a duct below the windscreen in the fairing to reduce low-pressure turbulence for the rider and passenger.
There's more air management down below, in the form of radiator side-covers that route hot engine air away from rider, and incorporate vents to direct cool air to the rider's legs. Nestled in the fairing is a traditionally styled instrument display, as well as an AM/FM radio with 80 watts of output, intercom, automatic volume control, ambiance setting and connectors for an optional CB radio and rear speakers. Handlebar-mounted controls operate the various audio functions.
The Honda Valkyrie Interstate Is Famous For Being Bulletproof. I Have Personally Seen Several With Over 150,000 Miles That Are Still Running Super Strong. With Just 11,400 Miles And Excellent Care, This Baby Is Just Barely Broken In.
