I am Sam from Arlington, MA. Total newbie as a rider. Like the looks of the Nighthawk. Hope to start with either a 250 or 450SC, preferably the latter. Hope to learn as much as I can from the wisdom and experience of veterans in ths forum. Thanks for the add.

Just got a 1985 Honda Nighthawk 450 SC

I just got a 1985 450SC Nighthawk.
May need a little work. It has a light oil leak near the oil filter. I am hoping it is just an oil filter gasket.
The rear tire seems to have a slow leak. Couldn't see a puncture of any kind. Could be a leak from the valve stem or maybe be a bad bead seating? Getting it delivered this coming Sunday after which I plan to diagnose the cause of the slow leak and also do an oil change to see if that stops the leak. I am hoping it is one of the following: the o-ring in the filter, the crush washer or the gasket.

Will post some pics after this Sunday.

I am so looking forward to learning more about this bike from all the absolutely great folks here on this forum!

Thanks!


Welcome Sam.
