Just couldn't pass it up for 20 bucks. Maybe just wall art. 1976 Bonnie frame.
Just picked up this 1983 Honda nighthawk 650.. The bike has not been on the road since 1993 and is in great condition.. starts up just fine but carbs are flooding and will need to be cleaned and rebuilt..I bought this bike for a great price $400..from an old guy that got it in a barter trade and only road it around the block.. Now it’s going to be a project bike for my 16 yr old daughter and I.. she excited as can be to get started..
I was just going to kinda fix one sticky float but ended up rebuilding/ cleaning all 4 carbs! I took the carbs apart on the bike because they were a pain in the butter to get out of the rubber boots. So I just left them on the bike. It's running good after taking a 3 minute ride to a gas station it broke down on me! It took a while to figure out that my fuel filter was dry. I blew with my mouth into the fuel line and there must of been a air bubble from hell because that fixed it. Gas started flowing. Overall I like the bike, it has only 12k miles and I'm not even sure I can wear this bike out in my lifetime.If it runs and has a title you did good at $600.
yes that does help, I used the heat gun for the air cleaner side of rubber boots. The engine side I used heat also but couldnt get them off without resorting to a big prybar probably. So I decided to just leave them on the bike. Im glad I did because I might of ended up breaking something. Instead of silicone I used some WD40 on hand. I actually use that stuff everywhere, sometimes spraying whole bikes with it to "hydrate" them. Also it works good to clean and darken black engine cases, frames, and wheels.A hint for the rubber "insulators" - heat gun until bath water warm. Then heat again to reinstall (plus a shine of silicone grease).
