Question on a 85 650 Nighthawk

I have a line on a 1985 Honda Nighthawk 650. It has 10,000 miles, clean title, runs good (according to the seller). It looks good in the pics I have seen. Asking price is $1750. I was thinking if it checked out, I may offer $1500. What do you think?

I have always been a fan of these bikes.

Mrs. B is against it, of course. Sheesh.

Guy at work has over 100K miles on his 650 'Hawk, currently in his garage on blocks with many age/mileage induced issues but he vows to rebuild it.

Asking $1750 means he wants $1500 for it.

Solid bike, enjoy.

Fun Motor

No valve adjustment means usually in tune, there were comparisons to the fun of riding an RD350 when introduced.
Personally the bike never inspired confidence. Might have been the tires, though I experienced two brands. Fork springs and replacement progressive shocks did not help.
This may have been disappointment as this bike replaced a GS650G as my second bike, main commuter. Windshield and bags.
Never misbehaved just the handling was not sport bike. Long fork, short shaft drive maybe.
Bought used, rode 10,000+miles, totally reliable, fun smooth motor.
My big bikes at the time were a CB1100F, Sabre 750, then a Concours..

Enjoy. It is a good motorcycle and I might have been asking a bit much.

Mrs B finally came around last night. She asked me to show her the bike on cl. It was gone. Three days on CL.
