    The appeal....?

    Not that I am a fan (I traded a CRF for the Ascot) but...

    It is a V-Twin (pre Hawk motor), Shaft drive, umm has "Flat tracker styling", not as sporty as a Hawk, Rather comfy.

    There is a small following (I thought Hawkers were a small group but NOooo)

    I guess that is it. It is a good bike, I know mine will sell in the spring for a good price.

      I think I can answer that Doug- some people like the flat track style of it (but I personally don't like square headlights). Also it has a v-twin. Then again, you don't see many of them! So I'd guess that most buyers didn't see a need for them. I'm trying to get a friend to buy it from Doc- it will be his first bike and I think it will make a great first bike- easy to ride, lightweight, not too fast, etc.

        Doc if you end up parting this out, gimme a shout. I am in need of many stock tidbits for my barn hawk. The key one being a non-rusty tank. Yours is actually a lot prettier than the one I am trying to bring back to life.

          see doc
          the bike is almost parted out

          rear end
          front end
          tank (and what ever else kip needs)
          you keep the motor

          and im sure the rest will go fast

                  hawk parts

                  i am just getting into the bits of the hawk and know next to nothing about the shock. is it a good replacement for a standard hawk shock. i'd be using it for doing standard new york city streets duty with 3 to 4 track days a year?

                  if so, what cha lookin for in terms of price if you do go the parting it out route.

                  i'd definitely like a better shock.

                  and thanks for putting it all out there.
