This is a great starter bike but there are better ones in the same Honda line. The CB 750 had one of the highest volume sales in history. You can find them in just about every country in the world. Hell, there are fake ones in Iran for hell’s sake. Because they were extremely reliable a lot of them, older than an ’82 I might add, are still cruising around. If you can’t find a part you are doing something wrong. In the U.S. if there isn’t one in the neighbor’s driveway just walk a few houses and there’s a good chance you’ll find one or someone that knows where one is. They are cheap, reliable, and smooth. The only way you could do a little better would be to go for a little bit newer Nighthawk (1984-1986 were 700s and shaft drive) all Nighthawks had hydraulic lifters so no valve adjustments. The ’82 might be but I don’t remember. The second gen Nighthawk ran from about 1991-2002 and are 750s. I believe some had chains and some shafts. They will probably run you about twice as much initially but they get up to 58 mph or so. Parts are everywhere. New, used, mods. Whatever you want. The aftermarket is seething with brand new parts of every kind. Anyway, you can’t do a heck of a lot better than that CB 750 for a starter bike. Try Bikebandit.com for OEM stuff. Or bikerbandit.com it might be. You’ll figure it out. BTW the motors will make 200k and laugh about it all day long. If you want to see one sick looking 750 Nighthawk check out The bike Daryl started riding in like season 4 or 5 (his second bike) on AMC’s The Walking Dead. That is based on a 90s Honda CB 750 four Nighthawk. Anyway, I doubt you will be disappointed with it.
