Jim all my Honda's use the same bucket, this one for a 2008 250 nighthawk maybe you will recognize it 250 - Copy.jpg

I wasn't aware Honda was using the old bucket still. HM36 I think is the marking. That replaceable bulb lens looks like it appeared in 2001 with the 250 Nighthawk. The biggest problem is finding a unit with the mounting ears in the correct locations, from what I've read the aftermarkets all seem to be offset and some with larger threaded holes.

My son has a 1993 250 nighthawk it had the had the soldered in bulb and the headlight from one of my 1978cb400 was a perfect fit, I just cant see spending $45.00 on a dim light.

Since the headlight bucket is the same one as the original CB400T1, 2 and A models then I would do the simple thing and buy the later headlight, 33120-KPJ-670, with the changeable bulb and use a H4 55/60W bulb which was standard equipment. Headlight change took place in 2001.
Original bucket fits

Yep, find a headlight assembly from a later model CB250 and bolt it in. Or if your bucket is good then buy the bulb ass'y. There's some on eBay. The charging system is sufficient for the 55/60W bulb, I've been running one for 7 years now
