1985 Honda Nighthawk 650
Info: it is not a bad job swapping tires with shaft drive.
Last week did my shadow this week the Nighthawk.
I went with Shinko 712 on this. I will add a picture and review after I put some miles on it.

Info: this bike is a hoot. it has been flawless with the exception of..39000 miles and making some cam chain noise so
maybe I will update when I see if I have to replace the chain or only the tensioner.
