1983 Honda Nighthawk CB550BARN FINDok(Storage locker find)
****This is an absolutely incredible motorcycle!***** You can still ride this summer!
I'm falling in love with this bike, but promised a friend I would sell it for her!So here is the story. Her late husband had a Harley. He wrecked the Harley. He went through physical therapy. He then bought this Nighthawk as an additional therapy machine. (didn't want to ride a big bike till he got his confidence up.)
Conqured the physical therapy! Bought a new Harley!Put this Nighthawk in storage! Never road it again!Rode his new Harley,and....unfortunately passed away.
The good news for you is that when he stored the Nighthawk he did everything right!(well almost)He filled the gas tank and put fuel stabilizer in it,He drained the carbs! (just like Honda recomends)He tarped itHe said goodbye, shut and locked the door!(only problem was that storage lockers get hot in the summer)Gas expanded and leached out on the top of the tank, which violated the topcoat of paint. not bad. see pics.
With all that being said, this is one incredible machine. I put a new battery in it, and it fired right up! Nothing fancy about starting fluid or new plugs, It just fired right up!So I couldnt resist. I drained the gas and put new regular in it. Been having a blast riding it! It starts up in a heartbeat, and performs.
This is one fast bike! Honda jetted the Nighthawks to be that way! You can ride it like a first generation "Super Bike" or you can treat it like a lady! Ride it for a weekend hobby, or command it to perform! It is that versatile.
Mechanically I would rate this bike at the top of the list! I have an old Harley and an old Goldwing, but this bike is just plain fun, and fast.
I have to sell it before I get pulled over. (and I am 65!)
So guy's ... gal's please only serious bidders! you will need a $250.00 deposit upon winning this auction. You will also need to pick up or ship this bike without much delay. sure we can be flexible...but you need to be serious.
This bike is 47 years old! It has a couple of dings and faded paint, as well as imperfect chrome. It is hard to tell the fading on the top of the tank. Most of the blemishes you see in the pics. are sunlight relections. The top af the tank just has gas fading. (Not worth repainting)As a matter of fact, you can buy a black upper tank decal to hide it for about $12.00 from Ebay! problem solved.
So, It is not a show bike, ....but it is a bike to show off.
All that said, Happy bidding! We are selling this bike without a reserve, so if you are the high bidder,.........YOU WIN!
