      Thanks Talon. I was asking because I have a Grey Hawk, but the frame reads 1989 and my understanding Grey was only an option in 88. It also has Honda insignia on triple tree. Next question is, can I swap out my 88 top triple tree with my 89? I like the insignia.

            Sounds like someone put '88 bodywork on an '89.

                The little Honda wing logo on the right side? My 88 has one.

                  Must have had the top triple replaced at some point.

                  The emblem was first used in 89 based on this part #:

                    Ya know, you can sometimes find the little emblems on ebay as NOS. Stick it on the '88 top triple, and save yourself a LOT of work. Just saying'.
                    (I like it better without the emblem.)

                      The 89-91 have a relief cast into the yoke to countersink the emblem.

                        I have no idea if it was added by a PO or not. The bike did come with everything they took off. So I'd bet if they did change that out, they would have left the old one in the box o spares.

                        I'm not trying to say when the emblem was added. I don't know Hawk history enough to say. I do know not to trust Partzilla. It's not the gospel.

                          Yes they do. It's five minutes versus five hours. Okay by me. And maybe your front tree needs a service anyway.

                            Learn something new everyday. I always have thought the logo was cast as part of the triple. I should have know it was too detailed to be made that way.
