This months winner comes from the archives.

The owner hasn't been around in a while, but was quite active when he was.

Though a bit grainy, the pic shows a happy owner next to a pristine 85 V65 Sabre with a Corbin Gunfighter seat.

In a leap of faith he shipped it from FL to the UK where he lived. Why a leap? The Sabre was never sold outside the US.

To prove he really drank the Koolaid, he shipped an 83 V65 Magna over to boot.

Congratulations Duncan, your 85 VF1100S is Dec's BOTM.

Blue striped 85.  Love them Sabres.

Great pick!

I love all motorcycles.  Especially if they're a Honda.

I hope he's still riding this beauty.

Nice pick Michael, sabres don't get the love they deserve.

Nice!  I loved my Sabre.  I spent years finding a Hondaline full fairing for it too!  I was really happy :)

V4's are fun!

Excellent choice  :thumb My first V4 was an 82 VF750S. I road the wear bolts off the foot pegs (I was young and immortal back then). After that it was V4s for me. Thank you for this thread Michael.

The Sabre was sure to turn most heads, very nice job and cool sound from that engine.
