My CB360 is on hold right now, due to parts and other stuff. I want something fairly bulletproof to ride around so I can actually tear the 360 down and give it the attention it needs.

Going to look at a 1982 CB750 Nighthawk that apparently runs but needs new gas tank and seat. 200 bucks?! Any advice on these? If its tank is out of commission, should I eyedrop some gas into all the carbs to see if it runs? If it doesn't run, but just needs some love (carbs clean, new tank, etc) what would you ask for such a bike? Cosmetics are not an issue, I figure I'll make this one a rat bike since I'll be restoring the 360.

if most parts are accounted for, and it seems like it will run...

$200.00 is cheap.

push it around in gear as i don't believe those have a kicker, and see if you get a glub glub of compression...

Ray (fasterspider) can probably check in here - he's our resident DOHC Four guy.....
If it has a title, that doesn't seem like a bad price at all.....

It's a great price, almost to great in fact. Remember the problems getting two carbs to work correctly? Now multiply that by about 4. If the tank is shot then my guess the carbs are going to need to be gone through as well. If you're looking for a daily, reliable rider, then you're probably going to have to spend more than $200.

The 82/83 CB750SC Nighthawk gas tank is unobtanium.

It had a gas guage sender in it and was prone to bending and ripping if over torqued after the tank rubber has been totally destroyed and the tank is put on anyway.

You can use a K-model or cb750c Custom tank in it's place if you can get one.

I am a 79-83 DOHC Honda specialist and can help you with any problem that bike might have.
