Last year my brother started making noises about finding a bike and learning to ride again. He's 33 now, 13 the last time he was on a bike.

Well that's all we needed to hear, pretty quickly dad found an '83 Nighthawk on CL for $600. Picked it up in Grand Rapids, procured new turn signals, fork seals, tires, paint. Gave it to him on Christmas.

Congrats bro,

Dragging feet. He was pretty nervous about it but he's coming along just fine. Now he just needs to get his learners permit (pretty funny for a 33 y/o) and start booking saddle time.

Nice shot of the gutter, does it still need to be hung? Always did like the Nighthawk packages, lets get a ride set up!
