1983 Nighthawk 650 - my daily ride to work 50 miles each way.

Great low maintenance bike with hydraulic valves, shaft drive, hydraulic clutch. Pretty much all I have to do is change the oil.
Gets about 48-53 mpg depending on how hard I ride.

Got the bike for $400 and put another $200 and some elbow grease(carb clean, new muffler, install new tires, etc) into it to get it road worthy.

Also, I've started taking back roads for about half the distance each way and it makes the commute 10x more enjoyable and often faster as well not having to deal with traffic.
