Should I trade my 1978 Honda Hawk CB400A for 2001 Helix?

A place to discuss matters related to Honda Helix scooters.

Should I trade my 1978 Honda Hawk CB400A for 2001 Helix?

Postby miranda » Wed Jan 16, 2019 6:20 pm

I have pristine vintage parallel twin 400 cc Honda (Hondamatic) with only 8K miles, new tires & batt

Am thinking about even trade for 2001 black Helix with new tires/brakes and 6K miles

I love to cruise country roads in central Florida and am happy around 50 mph. Am 77 and been riding 60 plus years. A comfy ride is important to me. BTW I am sorry I ever sold my '04 yellow Helix several years ago.

Should I trade?

Thanks for your help once again.

Given your riding preferences I don't think that anyone here would discourage you from that move --even if you hadn't mentioned your regret in previously selling the screaming yellow zonker.

You will certainly regret selling the Honda Hawk......but think of it as opening a new chapter with the Helix. I have a Honda CB400SS and a Helix and whilst I like the CB the Helix is machine I prefer to ride. Can you have both?

I can't have both, unfortunately

Have decided to keep Hawk. Not as comfy as Helix but an absolute blast to ride. Turned 8K miles today

Thanks guys

I still really want to enjoy the comfort of a Helix, so I've put up my vintage 400 cc parallel twin MC up for sale for $1800 or trade for Helix in central Florida.

1978 Honda Hawk CB400A is a blast to ride and enjoy.....but a Helix will be more comfy. And I'm starting to get old I guess......

Call me at 863 206-8757 if you'd like to see my vintage bike or might want to trade for your Helix

Thanks

This is the THIRD ad you have placed for your Hawk. One is enough!
