I need pics of mid 80's nighthawk

I finally decided what I want for my next tattoo. My first bike was a 1985 Nighthawk CB750S. I broke my leg in 7 places when I crashed that thing against the front bumper of a truck. Don't laugh

I'm gonna get a CB750 engine tattooed on the side of my lower leg with a 4-1 exhaust spitting fire out the end.

I know a few guys on here own mid 80's Nighthawks. I'm wondering if someone would be so kind and take 4 or 5 pics from different angles on the exhaust side of the bike?

Shoot me a PM and I will give you my e-mail address, attached is the only pic I have of that bike, can't really see the engine details.

Thanks

Mine was an "82. Whole different story. This is the only picture I have of it, and it was scanned into the computer from and old photograph. Not a lot of digital cameras back in 1990...

Sorry to hear about the accident, glad to see you've recovered and still ride! We have something in common, 700S accidents. I tore my shoulder near 4 years ago on my 700S.

The stock 700S/750S didn't have a single side exhaust, I think the Mac and a few others were single sided.

That picture was taken in either '04 or '05. I'm growing a beard lately, with lots of grey in it. Does make me look a lot older. Don't know if that's good or bad...

I would throw you a picture of my buddies nitehawk, but its been modified a bit. Different wheels, F4 tail, custom seat, raised in the back, some cheapo LED headlight/fairing combo,... and the silly guy even rhino lined the plastics and tank before painting it. I don't like it, but a lot of other people sure do!

if you love your motorcycle, set it free.. if it comes back and hits you.. you highsided

All I need is a few pics of the engine. From a few different angles to give to the tattoo artist. Send them my way

You should do this image of the CB700/750's engine:



Also, these bikes were all dual exhaust so there is no 'exhaust' side.

It's so sad that the Black Chrome didn't hold up. That engine was DAM good looking when new, and the exhaust was straight cool!

It costs about a million bucks to have it re-plated to look original.
