Hello from a new old guy from Mishawaka Indiana. I'm just getting back into riding motorcycles after a several decade hiatus. I bought a 1986 Honda Nighthawk 450 last week and have started working on it.
I did get my motorcycle endorsement in September so I hope I'll be all set for next spring when it warms back up again.

Here is a picture of my 1986 Honda Nighthawk 450. It is in sound shape. It will need tires, brakes, a chain, and a bunch of elbow grease. Paint may come later. In the picture I had already removed the headlight bucket.

Hi Flyboy,
You made a good choice for your "beginner again" bike. I also had a 20+ yr hiatus, then bought a 1981 CM400E. Easy to ride, decent power, but I'm 6' tall, and that stepped seat was NOT designed for me. At least your seat is flatter than mine was. Have fun!
