I loved my CB750. If they brought it back like that, I'd look.

This thread has got me thinking about finding a 1990's Nighthawk 750, putting a vintage tank on it and stripping off that plastic tail section and side covers.

Here is a photoshop somebody did:



Here's another Nighthawk that someone did:

Nice looking Nighthawk (the real one) Mr Irish. I'm sure most here have already seen this Honda concept from 2007. But your pics got me to thinking too. If this bike is based on the new CB1100, how hard would it be to put it into production as well? Hmmmm...

Yes, I remember when that pic of the prototype CB1100R came out a few years back. I've had an '82 CB900F for some years, but I'd be interested in that svelte one if it went to production & came to the U.S. market.

I don't like it, but it looks like I'm in a minority of one!

You know what they say... "there's one in every crowd."


Only kidding, Odysseus. I'm sure you're not alone. But anyone that liked the "original superbike" from 1969 would probably like the '99 concept CB750 just as well.

The original...
