          Hey flyinelvis, it's not really a "build" as much as a cobbling together of parts from the garage, miss matched hardware, zip ties and the grace of some Devine entity. The mid-pipe is a Hawk Connection/ Jim Davis/ Motomorphic left exit. It mates to the stock headers. I believe, but I'm not certain, that user HPby??? Still makes them, I just can't remember his full screen name,

            HPbyGD Gary makes the Tokico six pot brackets and a awesome set of rearsets as seen in 88Honda Hawk 's super sexy bike.

            I'm not sure about the exhaust ?

              This thing we call the West Coast Hawk Rally has changed throughout the years. This year was no different. This year we had no awards, not a big deal, we donít need awards to recognize good people and the things that they do to be recognized. This year jspeed53 spearheaded the 2019 WCHR even though he was not able to ride, thatís a first for an organizer of these WCHRs. Not enough can be said for his efforts organizing the forum threads for this event and all the work he put in to getting shirts printed, networking and promoting this event to others, not to mention the time he spent during the rally driving an hour each way, running errands getting food, taking pictures, posting mini-writeups, etc. (Iím sure there is much more that youíve done that I did not mention here). I know John originally wanted to print coffee mugs for the rally, but that idea did not come to fruition this year. He worried that Hawkers were losing interest, because we didnít have more people signed up until much closer to the event. In the end the right amount of people came and everyone enjoyed themselves. Thank You so much John!

              Danny, how can we thank him for hosting this yearís event and accommodating so many of us in his home (me included). The way he helped Sootz with his bike on Friday both with technical skills and financial means, even though he was a newer member and had never met him before. Working on Bowman71ís bike Sat morning so that he could enjoy the ride. Lending one of his Hawks to Jimmy30 and all the prep he does to make sure that happens without a hitch. Giving me space to work on my bike, even though he expected me to take on a more organizational role. Organizing his local friends (Bernie, Doug, and others) to lead some of the other groups and generally looking out for all the Hawkers on the rides. I know that things didnít go as he planned which lead to stressful moments during the event, but we all survived and we ALL very much appreciate ALL his efforts and GREAT Hospitality!

              NT647 came up with a great design for the shirts and treated me to a shirt. Thank you so much for being there with you and your brother at every event. I always love seeing Kevin and Kurt during these events. F14, for driving his car all the way from Sacramento to just make it to the BBQ on Sunday. Heís a trooper. Halfast and Nomoduc (grill master), I miss riding with you guys, but so glad you made it to this event.
              And to everyone else who came and had a good time, even though I didnít get to ride with you guys, I had a great time meeting, eating, and chatting with all of you. Thank You EVERYONE!

                    Our happy group....pissed-off at me when I told them "from here we turn around and ride back."

                    Fun group and gathering this year! Lots of people to recognize and thank for making this happen.

                    John, Mike, Kevin, Lynn, Jack, Jimmy and Doug. All of you contributed in all different ways which made it a success. I thank all of you again!!

                    Also great to see F14 make the effort he did just to get here, participate and see old friends. Also was hoping to see Ken pass on the skirt he won the last time here to Paul, but we couldn't get that done...

                    Hoping to explore some new Bay Area roads on the next one....until then, have fun snd ride safe.

                      He has quite the interesting dash, too!

                      Nothing like a project to keep you busy, slowly draining funds out of the wallet! - spacetiger

                      Our Hawks have all the power any mature, sensible rider can use on any street or highway without carrying around excessively unnecessary big-bore weight and power - squirrelman

                      Bike builds can be and most time are art and expression. To take something mass produced and impersonal and make something personal that you can't stop staring at as you walk away. There is nothing I find more satisfying than looking at something cool and beautiful and thinking "I made that". - 6

                        I think that sums it up very nicely! Most of our Hawks are a hodgepodge of parts and pieces that truly make them our very own. And I don't think any of us would have it any other way. I designed a high exit right side pipe last year, if I had seen your design, I may have moved in that direction. Love to see more pics of your ride.

                        My son's family (and soon to be my daughter's family, too) are in San Diego. I keep trying to make arrangements to make a rally (I have a few t-shirts, thanks to all!), maybe next year? A long way from my North Carolina home, but what better way to meet fellow Hawksters and see the grandchildren? I'd love to make one of Chuck's gatherings in the upstate, just hard to justify with the missus. Looks like a good time was had by all!

                          Tell her you're bringing her to the Fingerlakes regions, you can do a winery tour, Watkins Glen raceway is there and happens to be NASCAR weekend...

                          I've spent most of my money on women, beer, cars and motorcycles. The rest of it I just wasted.

                            I had a great time at the rally. Many thanks to all of you who worked so hard to organize and plan for this event. I especially want to thank Danny, Doug, and Bernie who worked to get my chain issue resolved as quickly as possible.

                            It was fun to see old friends and meet new people. All of you are a very special Hawk family that I am proud and grateful to be part of!

                            Thank you all!

                              This Oregon rider will miss your fun this year, because of babysitting grandkids. Maybe next time.

                                Big thanks to the SoCal crew, Danny for hosting and leading the rides, John for keeping event going smoothly. It's always fun hitting these roads. The locals are lucky to have all this in their backyard!! It was nice to meet more riders I've seen only on forum. Till next year!! I hear it may come up North!!
