Looking for 650 Nighthawk parts in UK

Postby GeorgeSweety » Thu Aug 10, 2017 1:58 am

Hi all, noob here. I'm looking for a standard 4 into 4 exhaust system and seat in the UK. There are plenty for sale on ebay but they are mostly located in the US and as you can imagine, the postal costs are astronomical. Add to this the Import Duty of 20% on anything over $15 USD and you get the picture of why I'm looking in the UK. My bike is a 1982 SOHC 650 Nighthawk in standard trim but the exhausts are very rough and the seat has a few small holes. If anyone in the UK is going to Bob or Cafe a Nighthawk I'd be willing to collect and pay a good price for decent parts. I have a 4 into 2 Exhaust system from an 80/81 650 Custom that I'd be willing to throw into a deal for a standard system. :D

Hi CB650 and thanks for the advice, I tried Luxury Custom in the search but only cars came up.

:lol: I forgot to put CB650 in with the Luxury Custom part :roll: I found Nighthawks, I've never heard of them referred to as Luxury Customs before. Thanks.

They sure are, it was this site that helped me work out that the starter clutch was deaded and that the camchain tensioner wasn't in the bottom slot (next job). I've been lurking for quite a while so thought I'd better say Hi. :)
