Just picked this up, can't wait for the snow to melt now. Its an '86 and in real good shape. It has a horn and brake light switch, I'm going to add a blinker kit, clean it up a bit, plate it and put some miles on it this summer.

Thanks, it is the one from Freeland. I ordered a pr of bark busters & a new headlight fairing already since the stock one is cracked. It needs a new rear tire. I haven't figured out which one to get yet, my guess is its going to be hard to find one that performs well both on/off road.

By the way, since you're in Coleman, you should get ready to play the mid michigan/thumb photo tag game.

got the exhaust back on it today. I was going to put the rest of it back together because I had it apart for paint and I have a potential buyer.
but, the more I work on it the less I want to sell it.
it's one of the nicest riding road bikes I've owned. it's comfortable, has plenty of power and I think it is sexy as hell.
really starting to think I may just keep it and send it out for paint.
but, for the 4K, I'm kind of on the fence. I wouldn't part with it for any less.
I'm really indecisive and it drives me nuts sometimes.

Just keep it, you're going to regret selling it as soon as the guy rides off on it.

Decided to try and figure out why the V65 didn't roll worth a fukc , Both fronts and rear caliper slides were seized, and pistons were crusty, spent 6 hours cleaning and polishing 3 calipers and master cylinder parts, hope the brakes work better now.

Just picked up an '04 XT225 friday to replace the Nighthawk I just sold. It's got 2500 miles, a few extras (handguards, rack, carb work done), and it's in great shape. It came with brand new DOT knobbies that are a bit much for me so I ordered some 50/50 tires, shinko 244's, to make riding in the rain on pavement much less dangerous. It feels like a slightly more powerful, funner version of my TW200 that I used to have, I'm really liking it so far.

It's weird how boring I found my Nighthawk 750 to be. It has 5x more power than my TW or this bike, but it was really heavy and had absolutely no character. I like the thumper vibes and ability to hop curbs and hit dirt roads I guess. Regardless I'm glad the Nighthawk is gone.
