    Sure reminds me of a modern Hawk interpretation

    Minus the V-Twin engine of course.

          Very cool knowing the SSA fits that frame. I've read one instance where it was fitted to a CB-1 frame.

              Hard to say without seeing the swingarm but probably just the unit off a CB1000R or a recent VFR. Their siwngarms are kind of large and bulbous compared to the ones from the period of the Hawks though unfortunately. I guess they perhaps they them up for more than 50 horsepower or something?

                "The single-sided swingarm and rear wheel are from a VFR750F" in the story right above a picture of the left side of the bike.

                But it looks like a CB1000 unit with a 94 - 97 VFR wheel.

                      No prairie dog shit, SM. Just a visual appreciation of a pretty cool bike.

                      Speaking of visual observations, you might want to practice up on your header counting skills tho.

                          They have a real following. Not sure what kind of shock setup is on it but I can't help but look at these and wonder how hard it is to fit a Hawk swingarm too. Then again I was toying with it on my old 919 too, lol.

                            I like it too. The CBR version is like the modern F bike. If I ever I buy a new bike again.
