1993 Honda CB700SC Nighthawk from United States of America
I need another one
Never had a problem with my Hawk.
It was a great bike.
I used my title as a bond out of jail for my son.
He never went to court.
I lost my bike.
Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes

I bought my 86 Nighthawk S CB700SC in Feb 2009, it had been in storage since 1991. I cleaned the carbs changed all the fuel lines, new plugs, new battery, tires, oil and air filter. The bike had 2100K on it.
She runs great and averages around 45 mpg if I obey the speed limit; the mpg drops to about 37 mpg if I ride hard.
I've since put about 1300K on the bike with only a few problems. The petcock had to be rebuilt, I need to put new seals in the fork, and my starter has gone out, so the starter is currently in the local starter/alternator shop being rebuilt for $85.00.
I have noticed that when you shift from 1st to 2nd you need a good firm shift, and the battery needs to have water added about every 3 or 4 months.
All in all, this is a great, incredibly quick, smooth and fun bike. I sometimes think I would like a new ST1300, but then I go for a ride and realize just how much fun this little bike is.
