And from a looks standpoint, not much was changed from the way it rolled off the assembly line. Personally I think the 750 makes for more of a stiffy. The following version of the 750 Nighthawk looked even better, but it was shaft drive.

I have always thought that style of Nighthawk was some of the best looking Honda bodywork on those models. I like the 750 version of that era Nighthawk the best. I have been kind of looking for one and would put a cbr 600 F3 front end and wheels on it along with an alloy swingarm. I really like the style of pipe that is on the 650 pictured although a black 4-4 system with megaphones would also be cool.

He deleted them. Actually thought of Geeto when I saw these. I vaugley recall him saying he wanted one. Fresh out of the oven, done by a nice fellow in Aus.

yeah and it's even the comet engine which you see fewer of than the twins.

I know they are shit handling bikes but, man... just something irrationally attractive about an f-bed stuffed with vincent goodness.

I'm all for dragging shit out of the dumpster and assembling a motorcycle (other than its a lot of work and a really dumb idea). That is an epic fail....not to mention a waste of the CBR swingarm.
yes, it was a weekend of extremes. this was about the biggest fail i saw. i wonder how close to 4k he got.
