    Yeah, Honestly I need to pretty much completely redo all the electricals on the bike (aside from other blatant safety hazards), but that whole project will still cost less than the pipes. I just think the pipes are a major part of the build and I don't want to half-ass it. There's only 4 total in stock right now, and I may as well buy the expensive thing when I have the cash to do it. The rest I can do piece by piece, or even save up for normally. I think the tank, frame and wheels will be the only things original by the time I'm done with this.

    Rare enough to tune a Nighthawk, on top of buying parts that are already rare for the bike.

    And yeah, a group page might not be a bad idea since we seem to keep congregating in eachohter's build threads.

    I agree, pipes are a biggie and buy them when you can. A few years back I bought a stainless 4:1 for my CB750K project, a little later I bought a seat, gotta pile up parts while I can so I'll be ready when that bike gets its turn. It'll be a keeper for life.

    As for the group, click the drop-down for Community and choose Groups, you'll see it.

    As an update, I ordered the exhaust, I'll try to take pictures. I honestly plan on painting the pipes black, so I might include that part of the process but we'll finally see how these predator pipes look, sound and perform. A buddy of mine is actually eager to tear down my carb and clean it for me, so that'll make my life easier.

    I've even got a bunch of money coming in from overtime so in the next couple months I'll be back with a proper build thread as I transform my poor bastard Nighthawk.

    Sweet, i can't wait to see your build thread. Its a good place to park your ideas and thoughts so you can refer back to them later on. Some of us use notebooks too. You don't have to show results in your first post, go ahead!

    Which pipe did you get?

    This sparked the idea: Honda CB250 Nighthawk Scrambler ? BikeBound In this case it is complete custom made.

    Appreciate the replies. check out that link.

    Yes that's a good example, if you're looking up Nighthawk scramblers there aren't many to be found out there.
    I wonder how ugly the welds are on those pipes...

    I'm still searching for a set of useful, chrome, high pipes that'll fit. There are Chinese made bikes that are conspicuously similar, maybe I'll find a scrambler?

    I was just reading back and Mongo had planned to order up those pipes from the UK, current conversion rates put then over the $500 US Dollar mark, ouch. I sure hope all that overtime he planned on panned out and he's still in one piece. He hasn't been active on this forum since March 2019.
