Official Nighthawk thread
 
Okay Nighthawk owners, come out of the closet! Let's have our own thread to celebrate one of the most underated bikes ever. Post you're pics and any Nighthawk discussions. Here's my new (to me) 2003 750

Done so far:
EBC HH brakes, Russell Stainless lines, exhaust baffles drilled (see nighthawk750.com) GPS added, Uni filter

Things on order:
New tank (mine is dented), 14T front sprocket, carb jets and shims,

Near future: Progessive Suspension shocks and springs.

86 CB700SC red/white/blue

:rabia

Sport, sport-tour, commute...does it all.

No pics...haven't scanned them in.

Best bike in the world, IMHO. I love mine dearly. It's been parked for a while. One of these days I'll need to refurb it.

Anyone who knows me knows that I'm nuts about the SC's.

Igor, my '83 CB550SC, before I dumped him on a road slicked with rain and crap from diesel buses running there all day. :doh

Now sporting big CB750 turn signals and a round headlamp. :D

Note the high-tech helmet lock.

That red 750 you've got is just purty!

Night(hawk) Rider in South Florida
 
Hey, Night(hawk)-Riders:

I usually post at the Yahoo CB750 group but the more the merrier.

My ride is a 92 NH750 set up for sport touring. (I call it an "NH750-ST")

It's got Tour Master bags, Rifle fairing, VisiPath headlight modulator, Electropod LED taillights, Stebel Nautilus airhorn, highway pegs, drink holder, compass, XL tank bag, Ventura luggage rack, NEC throttle lock, Throttle Rocker, CB radio w/headphones, etc., etc. (I think I could have gotten a new bike for what I spent on add-ons.)

Anyway, can't figure how to insert a pic so if you want to see it, visit this URL, then click on "large":

Ride safe all.

Thanks for starting the thread, Ed.
 
I'll put up pictures after I take some and when I figure out how to post them.

It's a nice idea and all but who doesn't know what a Nighthawk looks like?

OK, here's mine. 1985 CB650sc. I traded her for a horse. Seriously.

Nice bikes, lots of 'em here in Japan. I've always wondered why Honda didn't put a shaft drive on 'em like the CBX750 Horizon.

Horizon?
 
Horizon? Why, that's just a big ol' Nighthawk S.

So it is! Pretty positive review back in the day, especially about the shaft drive and hydraulic valves. Sounds like it'd make a great daily runner.

Nice bike, hmmm those shocks are the same length and have adjustable dampening, might have to visit ebay.The earlier Nighthawks seem to be much less of a budget bike and had alot of nice parts, i.e. gear indicator, dual discs, rear disc, shaft drive, adjustable sus pension,more aluminum less steel. BTW is that a Campbell's soup can up on the fairing?
