65 Honda CB77 Super Hawk Barn Find

Postby mixalive » September 14th, 2015, 12:55 pm

Look what I just bought for $600.. A 1965 Honda CB77 Super Hawk 305. I bought it from a friend of mine that was recently widowed. I made the deal assuming the engine was seized, but to my surprise, the rotating assembly turns and has compression. The forks and rear shocks work and the chain is good. It even had a key. It had not been registered since 1969.

Wow, old school Honda ! From the pic's it looks to be in good shape which should give you somewhat of a easy time restoring her. Course you are the motorcycle guy, how much you figure will be involved with this project ? Bad as "D" and myself, we both have bicycle projects we have been dealing with and you have been working on the RZ350
and now this one....figure it will go to the back burner till you get time or work both as parts and time come along ?
Relax and have deep water thoughts.

Basically a tear down, refinish and rebuild. I need to check the engine lubrication as it hasn't been registered since 69 and don't know when it's been run last. But that being said, the oil in the engine right now looks new. I think I could fire it up right now but I don't want to risk seizing it up by coagulated oil in the passages. Also have a Trail 70 to do prior to the CB77. So yea, the Super Hawk will be on the back burner.
