The color is called by Honda a Pearl Dark Green/Metallic Gray Combo
Unfortunately, only a few of my pictures did justice to this amazing color combination. Most of them seem to make the bike look black which it clearly IS NOT.
This 2 owner 1999 Honda Valkyrie Interstate has only 12790 original miles at the time of this posting. What a RARE FIND. The bike is in gorgeous original condition and it runs as good as it looks. It's wonderfully strong, amazingly smooth....If you want a Valkyrie Interstate, You have found the right one for you.
There is a little bit of separation in the speaker panel that connects to the instrument panel. Probably adjustable but since there is no vibration or looseness at all while riding, I'm not going to mess with it. I just wanted you to be aware of it. This is the only place where such separation exists.
TIRES ARE IN GREAT CONDITION. DON'T HAVE THAT MANY MILES SINCE REPLACEMENT.
The bike is totally rustfree having spent its entire life in the southwest desert of Albuquerque, New Mexico
The paint is in amazing shape. There is only one small rock chip on the right side saddlebag. There maybe some other small scratches but overall the condition of this bike is that of a bike that is almost new.
There is a boot scuff on one of the exhaust pipes which by the time you buy the bike I will have already removed.
It has some nice highway pegs for stretching out a bit on those longer trips. I believe they're kuryakyn or Cobra. Either way they're nice.
And it actually has rear speakers. All of these bikes were provided with the rear speaker housings...very few had the rear speakers installed. The stereo sounds great. Has an intercom system as well for talking with your passenger through your helmets if you have wired helmets. And if you have wired helmets, you can listen to the radio inside the helmet.
And the original seats from 1999 are in perfect shape. That's because this bike was garaged all the time. And covered when parked on the road.
Here are the specifications of this amazing 1999 Honda Valkyrie Interstate.
These bike are famous for going 150-200k miles and still be running strong. This valkyrie is barely broken in. And the previous owner used synthetic oil exclusively.

Here's the boot residue I was talking about. In the above picture, lowest right side of the picture. As I said, this will not be on the bike when you or your shipper come to pick it up
