Well, l went and looked at a 1985 Honda Nighthawk this morning. It was BEAUTIFUL on one side...the other side had been down...instrument cluster rattled as it rode...and it needed fork seals...tires were okay but cheap....none of this was in the ad. Oh, and Florida plates. He had been asking $1400 OBO, said he would take a thousand. I decided to hold off for something a little cleaner. I don't expect a perfect bike at that price point, but l think l can get more for the money. I will be looking at the 1984 GS550ES on Monday, and l saw a couple other bikes that hit the ads today. One was an '83 Kawasaki Spectre 750, the other a '96 Yamaha SECA II...both looked decent. We shall see if they survive the weekend.
