    Looks pretty clean, however I dont think thats the original color. $1500 is about the upper limit that I would pay for a 450. If its got relatively low miles, is fully registered and completely road worthy I would say $1500 is an ok price.

    GP... you might get $1500 for it, but I would accept any offer over $1000. Good luck with the sale.

    Yup, that was my thinking as well.

    I posted this in the Nighthawk forum, but thought I'd share...

    I was very fortunate to have purchased a <u>brand new</u>, unopened Hondaline backrest for my Honda Nighthawk 750. These have been discontinued for years, and command quite a high price on the used market!
    Apparently, this item was stored for 21 years!
    I purchased it on eBay for $169.95 + $48.75 shipping = $218.70 (USD) or $221.90 (CDN)
    To put that into perspective, used rusty and/or "tweeked" examples go for about the same price or more! Cheap-a$$ aftermarket copies, which are prone to quality and fitment problems, don't sell for much less!
    I am one happy camper today!

    There's a clean 91 Mightjawk 750 with 55,000 on the clock for sale locally. He's asking $1800. Is offering $1400 a scumbag lowball offer?

    I think $1400 is fair! Go for it, you have nothing to loose! :D

    Right on!
    Lurking around this thread, $1400 doesn't seem like a lowball. We'll see if he gets back to me.

    Anyone gone after something like this?

    I just sold my clean 92, with 63000 miles for 2300. But you're on the other coast, so things might be different.

    Clean, older bikes are few and far between...

    I'd say it's a great deal at 18, and if you end up at 16, no big deal. Good luck!

    $2300 for a 20 year old NH750 with 63,000 miles?
    = 100,800 kilometres
    I'd say you did well.

    I also agree that depending on where you are, prices vary. We pay a major premium north of the border.
    I won't tell you what I had to fork out for my mint 2001 NH750! Ironically, a Maryland bike.

    And you don't know half of the story! But seriously, it was well cared for (although not mint), and lived in a garage its entire life when not on the road.

    Mine sold new to the PO in 1995 for about 4000. I'm guessing you paid a mint, for the mint!

    BTW, nice find with the backrest/rack. You must be thrilled!

    IIRC, that yellow sticker says it has a weight limit of 6 pounds. You can safely ignore that! :evil

    Congrats. What did you end up getting for it?

    Looking forward to pics of the 750 when you get it all sorted and cleaned.

    I got what I paid for it four years ago, $1,000.

    Picked up the 750 last night. Rode it home on the Linc last night, 110 kph in fourth gear, oh my sweet music. getting the safety hopefully on Wednesday, my next day off. Register it the same day and it's off to the races. I figure I'll go to Ultimate cycle and have them throw on some new front brakes for me, they feel a bit soft. Oil change and shaft drive gear oil changed while I'm at it and call it good.

    I'll get some pics up, she ain't perfect, but she's got it where it counts. Although my 2 year old daughter did say "Oh Daddy, it's beautiful!".

    I am fairly new to my 2001 Nighthawk 750, so I don't know what is normal. I have noticed slight rings on my lower fork tubes. No dripping or wetness, more like a very slight film. It seems be the same on both sides. Is this normal? Most of my previous motorcycles had fork gators, so I never took notice of whether or not the lower fork tubes had any film on them. BTW, the vertical white lines on the lower photo are the effects of the flash. Both tubes are perfect -- no scratches whatsoever. I am assuming that a very thin film of oil on the forks is normal, because the seals do not remove or 'scrape' off all of the oil from the surface of the fork as the lower tube slides up and down.

    You worry too much, that's perfectly normal in my experience.
