1983 Honda Nighthawk 650

Picked up this gem this past Saturday

Browsing through C-List, as I often do, it had a $200.00 price tag and I scooped it up, with title

The owner purchased it in 1990 with 34.1k on the clock, put it down on the right side at 35.6k and it has been in a garage since.

There is a dent in the tank on the right side from his leg which may be able to be "blown out" ? Not sure of the procedure for that, anybody with some info will be appreciated.

The right (#4) exhaust pipe has a sizable 5" dent that chokes about half of the area off that will be replaced asap.

All turns will be replaced and the gauge cluster is cracked.

As of today I have the oil drained, all the spiders out, carbs off to be rebuilt and the general checkover.

Also have a message to Franks Forks for replacement and an ebay list on hold til I see how the engine sounds.

Stay tuned BRB

Sometimes it takes a whole tank of gas before you can think straight.
