Default Traded in the SSEi 4 a HONDA don't be mad at me....

Ya right!!!!!

Did go buy my first honda product though.



1985 Honda Nighthawk 650 aka 85' CB650SC.
DOHC 4-cyclinder 655cc
6-speed Tranny (5+Overdrive)
Saft driven
4-2 dual exhaust
Oil cooler
Dual Front Disc
Adjustable front and rear shocks.
TRAC. (anti nose-dive front fork settings)

Found this bike through a friend, got it from the original owner, a Female Police Sergent. Bike only had 7,410 miles and the condition is LIKE NEW!!!! She hardly ever rode it, washed and waxed it twice a year, always garaged and had a honda tune up every other year, also new battery. She was done riding and passed the word along at the police station and word trickled down to me. With the condition and the price, couldn't pass it up. Gotta be worth almost twice what I bought it for.

This bike is SO CLEAN!!!! everything stock of course, except for the Silverstar head lamp I just put in. Still had the original tires on it too Took it staight to local motorcycle shop for some rubber from this deckade, Now some safe new dunlops for my new bike. Time to cruise.

motor puts out 72HP and runs 12.1'* in the quater mile according to 80'* Motorcycle magazines and gets 50-60 MPG. Now thats some econmy performance with not your every day styling.

Look closely at how clean this bike is, Dosen't show at all that its 21 years old. Pics are with a wash and the zaino polish for the paint. check out the shine in the tank. Can see the SSEI in the last one
















This bike has been one of the many reasons I haven't been online here very often lately, also got a nasty CPU virus shut me down for a while, still fighting it actually. Any gurus please PM me, there was another 3-wheeler vacation in there recently too.
