Hello all,
      I just joined the forum today but have had my first bike, 83 CB650SC, for a little over two years now. I’m a younger rider and have only ever done light work on vehicles before but work as an electrician so I’m fairly handy with my tools. I’ve been absolutely in love with my bike and finally had the motivation and proper time off of work to get her up and running again after a short stint with a drained battery and a blown starter. Blown starter was my fault, don’t listen to your electrician friends when they say you can connect up your car battery and try to see if your bike will start that way. One replacement battery and starter from amazon later and we are back on the road. I’m in California and my live in girlfriend enjoys riding together around our area. I have lots on my to do list; breaks, form seals, leaky peacock, turn signal issues and digital display to name a few but look forward to tackling them, with the help of all the fine people here on the forum. So watch for me in the technical section as I am sure I will need to pick your collective brains in order to bring my wonderful machine back to tip top shape. Thanks everyone and hopefully I’ll have some better pictures soon.

I checked their website, they don't have the new 650 Twin in yet.

Welcome to the madness.

The exhaust pipes are double walled.  That means good news and bad news.  The bad news is that the old "fill it with water and stick it in the freezer" trick won't work on that dent.  It might move it a little, but not likely.  The good news is that you can clean those pipes up absolutely shiny as new with a product called Blu Job.  Look it up online and buy it.  Use as directed and get ready to be amazed.

The fork lowers can also be polished but will have to be sprayed with some kind of clear coating to protect them.

Does it run?  If not, what are the symptoms?  These bikes are incredibly resilient but they can be rabbit holes as well.  Get it running first and then make it pretty, would be my advise.

Hope you enjoy your new toy.

After the oil embargo of 1974 (I was a 9 year old kid), our neighbor purchased a Honda Civic CVCC hatchback.  I thought that car was really cool.  I think ever since then, I've had an affection for Honda cars and have owned many of them over the years.

Hello everyone,

My name is Aaron and it's nice to meet everyone on here.
This is my 1985 Cb650; my first bike.

I've had quite a bit of experience with 80's Hondas cars and am a huge fanatic of them. I thought I'd turn my interest to Hondas bikes as well, so I picked this beauty up for $300." from a friend of a friend.
It has just over 20,000. As you can see, it's going to need quite a bit of TLC and some parts to restore it. I plan on doing slight modifications, but nothing straying too far from the OEM look.

Any help/info on these bikes is much appreciated!

Be sure to let us know what you think of them after you get a chance to see them.
Maybe they will let you test ride one if you tell the dealer that you represent the Nighthawk forum!

ride safely,
