My CB650SC Nighthawks

Postby GeorgeSweety » Thu Jun 20, 2019 2:15 am

It occurred to me that I have never posted any pic's of my Nighthawks on this site so I'd better fix that, I haven't got any pic's of my CB650Z but it's not that much to look at just yet!
First up is my US import Nighthawk from 82. Bought as a non runner and fixed up over the next 18 months, it took so long because I was trying to find parts at a reasonable price :roll:

Next is my UK Nighthawk, I do have the tank, seat etc. but this is the only pic that I took when I bought the bike, still trying to find parts for this one before I start the rebuild.

Thanks Mr_Crow :) , the bike was filthy in that pic as I'd just ridden to the MOT centre (UK road worthiness certificate) in a January rain/sleet shower. Cleaning them is all part of the maintenance Mr_Crow, plus you get a good opportunity to really study your new bike.

Thanks Efferdy :D In the UK SOHC Nighthawks are really thin on the ground so finding parts isn't easy, the bikes seem fairly common in the US but the shipping and import duty is usually way more than the cost of the part that's why it takes me so long to restore one.

That's really the challenging part of the UK owners. But it should worth it nonetheless.
