We soldone from our shop last year with a 30 day warranty for $2500. It had 30,000kms and a repaint (crappy repaint at that). Mechanically sound. If the engine is pooched, the bikes only worth a few hundred. And don't even attempt to rebuild that engine, buy a used one in good shape. Problem with all the Honda VFours was top end oiling. They all had issues with cam wear. My bosses exact words were "in 20 years, I've never seen a VF engine, with no cam wear, but I've never seen one so bad it NEEDED replacing". The topends on them sucked. They are fucking sweet bikes though, I'd love one eventually...too many toys to buy first.

I had friends that owned that bike back in the mid 80s
One crazy bastard put NOS on it. Called himself COP TEASE
But they did have problems with the cams.
They also made a VF1000R.
It had gear driven cams and body work that was stunning.
But it was a slug.
They sold new for $8000. in Canada
I think the Interceptor sold for under $4000.
Offer to give it a good home. If he delivers it.

I wouldnt bother, really, its old school, start from a chasis that dosnt need updating, it seems your going the wrong way round with putting a modern motor in a outdated chasis, Just my Oppinion.
