Led me to pull the trigger on e-bay (again). Total time from find to finish: 10 hours. Total miles 250. For $250 I just couldn't pass it up. Had to drive through one of the wickedest snowstorms I've ever seen to get it. Top three. Inch to two inch clusters and visibility ended at the hood of my suburban. Headlights would fill up every 20 miles and my top speed was about 25 miles an hour for 50 miles or so. I'll post pics when I've got some daylight but this is the new scooter. I always liked the look of the nighthawk. Kind of a chick bike, and not as much horsepower as my v45 but it has the classic pull of the inline 650. Quick. Stats: (borrowed from some interweb site) 1983 nighthawk 650 Colors: Pearl Siren Blue Candy Wineberry Red The headlight and instruments were rectangular The exhaust system was a 4-into-2 The forks had the "TRAC" anti-dive system The emblem was located above the axle The speedometer numbers were marked in increments of 10 (i.e, 10, 20, 30, 40, etc.) The engine used hydraulic valve adjusters and clutch.
