1982 Honda CB750 Nighthawk-Sold she’s going to Brazil!

She’s a 1982 Honda CB750 Nighthawk with 18,300 original miles. With the exception of the windshield and the pleather saddle bags, she is all original. She has a crack in one of the plastic pieces over the saddle bags and a couple plastic spots were repaired very well. There is a turn signal alarm added to her. As expected, the Honda horns no longer work, she has a bicycle squeaky horn. A few dings and scrapes, but overall in amazing shape for being a 31 year old bike. I had every intention of riding her back and forth to work but I just don’t have the time needed to maintain an older bike like this and with three kids and my wife back to work I don’t have the time to do much of anything so she has to go before she starts deteriorating from lack of use-that would be a shame. Someone who knows bikes could do a full restore on her fairly easily-or chop her like so many CBs have been done.

Her Blue Book is $1,165

Her Trade in is $720

I am asking $950 for her as is. Serious inquiries only, no tire kickers.

Being 31 years old, there are no guarantees. She would be a great candidate for a ground up restoration or put a few dollars into her and have a great old daily driver.
We have a clean title in hand.
See my 1982 Honda GL500 as well. Make an offer for both and you’ll walk away with a good deal and two old bikes in decent shape.

Side view, clean, classic style.

No mistaking she is a child of the 80s

A leather toolbag on the front would look great.

Really is in great shape for 30 years old

Paint is in really good shape

Chrome is in good shape

This is the broken plastic piece

The plastic is in good shape, shines up nice

Just enough chrome for my taste

4 carbs, 4 exhaust into 4 mufflers

Actual miles, I am the third owner.

NOT-For Sale 1982 Honda GL500 Silverwing (unless I can’t refuse your offer)

I am finally going to sell my brother’s bike. She has never been mine and I was always a little uncomfortable riding her-she was still his after all. She is a 1982 GL500 in pretty darn good shape for being 30 years old. She has never given me any problems starting. She most likely will need a new front tire for an inspection sticker. They usually do brakes at the same time, so keep that in mind. The horn does not work, I used a squeeky bike horn when I rode it last. I do not have the time to maintain the bike with 3 kids and a wife that works most nights. This bike is not perfect, however, given the years she has on her she is in really good shape. One could do a restore or make her a chopper quite easily. I just don’t have the time to ride anymore so she has to go. I hope she goes to someone who has the time to give her the attention this rare classic bike deserves. They say these engines will go and go then go some more so at less than 9,0000 miles on her, she has plenty of life left. While washing her, I snapped off one of the tabs on the side plastic cover behind the battery; the cover stays on but is loose.

This bike is considered a convertible. The trunk and a rear seat are interchangeable. They snap on and off with the helmet hanger levers.

Yes, she is liquid cooled.

Note dent in portion lower tank.

Actual miles. Note screw missing on fuse cover.

Nice shot of the transverse mounted twin engine. EVERYTHING on this bike is easy access, no taking off the seat to remove the battery even.

The other side of the engine.

She is shaft driven, no belt or chain to maintain and a smooth ride.

I usually rode it with the seat on. A very comfortable second seat, the seat back makes it feel safe too.

Tank dent was there when I got her.

Cracked rear fender.
