    Cup holders

    Is anyone using cup holders on their Hawk? I am dying to be able to haul a beverage around without putting it in my chest pocket.

    Maybe there is some sort of chest strap with a cup holder on it

    NT696 ran one bent up from a wire coat hanger and attached to the right rearset where the exhaust spring used to sit. His carried a cup of coffee from Toronto to Hawthorne, NY. I once fabricated one out of bent aluminum plate and a bungee to mount in the same spot, but it was on Eileen’s bike when stolen.

      Maybe you should be looking into a goldwing if you are wanting cup holders...

      89 BlackHawk 2.0 - On the lift and being assembled
      90 Hawk GT (color as to yet be determined) - Still on the shelf in crates

        I used one of those small bungee cords through the top holes to hold the mug in place.

          The clean solution would be a RAM ball and gimble cup holder. You can buy them but maybe I’ll print one for the hell of it,even though I’ve never had the need/desire.

            I use bicycle water bottle holders mounted to my headlight bracket on my WR. I use them for extra fuel, but they do fit smaller (in diameter) stainless steel water bottles. You could probably do the same on the Hawk with a bit of drilling.

              rpcraft I would not mind rocking a naked "Old Wing" as a daily ride - a cup holder would be gravy on the biscuits! I'll put that thought in motion, perhaps, this weekend haha. I've seen plenty of purchasable "Old Wings" in my area, but at the same time, I'm thinking I could spend the chunk of change on the Hawk - decisions, decisions.

              Interesting setup

              69Falcon ! Where do you attach it at?

              I'd love to see some pics of that, joel !

              That's a great idea, halfast , how did you come across that idea?

              Thanks for the ideas guys! It's a silly desire to have a cup holder on a Hawk, but damn it, I desire it.

                Mounts to the back of the right OEM rearset, where the oem exhaust spring/guard goes.

                  Man don't pay rob any attention.. he's all talk.


                  Though old wings are sweet. The hawk is mainly a commuter. Most commuters want to be able to Cary a drink. Not worth swapping to a 7million pound long distance tourer that handles like a truck in order to bring a drink with you.


                  ​​​​​​Lot's of people have rigged up cup holders for hawks. Pretty good place to get creative at your local hardware store on a Sunday morning and see what you can do.

                  My step dad had a bar mount cup holder on one of his bikes, he bought it somewhere like Amazon. He also road with no helmet, so to him being able to reach it while riding was important.. if you wear a lid then probably not so much to you.

                  Hang something down by the radiators and you can probably keep it warm too.


                  Show us what you end up with yo.

                    Damn, I hate to say, but I do not have that DIY, engineering-finesse that some of the other members have here.

                    I am leaning into another set of two wheels, in general, so that I can keep the Hawk garaged for longer. You're right, though @6, the "Old Wing" is a heavy momma, but I haven't been on a naked GL 1000 and it looks like a fun one. What I do like is that the Goldwings I've spotted are reasonable in price, but I've seen some other adventure bikes in that price range, as well, so I'm on the fence.

                    As far as a cup holder goes, I may run with joel's idea and purchase a RAM mount cup holder.

                      I run one on the Thruxton, a bicycle cup holder made of ABS, that attaches to the passenger peg mount with a tube clamp. I got it off eBay for less than $10. Let me know if you want the link.

                        I would appreciate the link! DM me or share it here for other potential "cup-holder seekers", thanks in advance.

                        For now I am using a Nelson Rigg Hurricane (20) Backpack and it has a side pocket on each side - enough space for the double-insulated bottles that I am using.

                        I got one pocket holding the "tea bottle" and one pocket holding the water bottle. I like to ride around with snacks so I can post up wherever, munch whenever, sip some tea and shout that I'm relaxed as hell

                            Yo, I think I'm going to get five of those, situate them accordingly around the bike and just leave half empty beverages in there.

                            That's brilliant yo, thanks.
