First Post. In Law Gifted me a 82 NightHawk 450. Needs TLC.
« on: November 25, 2017, 05:52:41 PM »
Got this puppy Yesterday and realized it needs some work. It Runs, But needs all kinds of Love.  I gave it a wash, Took the side cover off(missing the right one) and seat and started to wipe it down. Cleaned chain and charged up the battery.

Things it needs:

Speedo and Tach dont work
throttle sticky
right side cover
Front Master cylinder
seat cover
signal light lenses
clutch lever

Really is exciting saving a bike.

Since you're pulling from imgur, when you paste the image tag add an 'l' (lowercase L) at the end of the file name, before the extension.  So https://i.imgur.com/UH89Pmk.jpg becomes https://i.imgur.com/UH89Pmkl.jpg
