    I may as well throw my EFI project in the running.

    Here's the current state of the bike:

    IMG_20190403_185752_252.jpg

    It has O2 sensor bungs and I have wideband O2 sensors so I can do individual cylinder tuning:

    859_1541521305481.jpg

    It will be getting a Revere tank with a CB500 in-tank fuel pump:

    And it will be using NT700V throttle bodies and associated sensors:

    I have almost all of the parts (assuming I can find my microsquirt ...) and now it just needs time, fabrication, wiring, and tuning.

        OK, I guess I'll throw my stalled track bike project into this.

        Here's how it sits now...
        20191209_183152496_iOS.jpg

        Needs to be wired yet. Needs a shock. Tires. Clutch cable. Cooling system to be finished. Motivation...

        Here's what the tail looked like when I got it. It came free with the subframe.

        IMG_0958.JPG

        I cleaned it up, fixed it, glassed over the destroyed upper mounts, lots of bondo and sprayed with primer, and made new mounting brackets. It'll work. No idea of final color yet. Pretty sure it's an Air Tech RC51 piece; kinda big for a Hawk but doesn't look too bad.

        Here's the rest of the story on how it got to where it is now, lots more pics there...

        https://www.hawkgtforum.com/forum/ho...a-race-odyssey

        I'm finally starting to feel like I may move it forward this winter, after I get the street Hawk back in running condition; which is almost done, a few hours at most I hope. Haven't ridden in like four years, gotta get back up again this spring, I miss it...

          Nice to see that almost one has time to finish the FI projekt. Did you print the intake manifolds?
          At the moment im searching for companys to made rubber ones then i can provide the forum with intake manifolds

            This is my super build and as far as i have got with it so far.

            IMG_20191213_164938.jpg


            Its going to have 90+ reliable HP, sub 280lb, i street or track trim. Custom carbon bodywork, ohlins GP spec front end and shock. The Swinger will be reformed out of carbon and the frame cut up and re welded with a bit more aggressive geometry. It should be street-able but also ready to pass tech at any CCS track. Going to do a candy bronze over the raw carbon. It's a project, but it will get there...
            Don't spend money and buy, spend time and learn.

              No I haven't had a chance to print them yet. Waiting until after the holidays. Also I ordered more NT700V boots to try my new crazy idea but apparently they're back-ordered nationally

                  Just got a text from grin who said he hasn't been able to log in and has already requested a reset. Waiting on the wizards to make it so.

                            top_view.jpg ok ok... SPA and 69Falcon got my login all squared away... now I just need to rummage up some pix so I can depress myself lol
                            left_side.jpg
                            this is not the current state of the bike (this was 6 years ago) , but it's the only pix I could find online that aren't hosted on photobucket... I will post more pix later when I'm at home...

                            Man, I've been away for a while... FI Hawks!? awesome!

                            My life/projects got really out of hand when i bought my house and finally had "space" lol...HAD space...

                            Currently on my property:
                            17 Ford Fusion Hybrid Titanium (tastefully modded)
                            15 F-150 Platinum 5.0 (obnoxiously lifted/heavily modded)
                            08 CBR1000rr (lol...it's...modded)
                            06 crf250rr (fully rebuilt and cosmetically modded)
                            01/05 R1/R6 streetfighter (chopped up and franken-modded)
                            96 xr600rr (USD front end swap and exhaust modded)
                            96 Seadoo GSX 800 (updated/modded)
                            95 Seadoo GTX 700cc (updated/modded)
                            93 Seadoo GTX 600cc (actually stock)
                            89 Hawk GT (bone stock)
                            83 Marlin Bowrider (full resto-mod)
                            73 cb350 (full cafe-build)

                            There have been others that I have actually finished and then just gotten bored with like the LIFTED awd honda CRV that couldn't get out of it's own way, or the 110cc quads we used for backyard mario-kart...

                            I'm not making great excuses, but you guys can hopefully see now why the Hawk is still unfinished...truth is, I rarely even ride any of the bikes anymore so I should probably work on getting rid of them...All my fiends sold their bikes and i commute before 5am and I'm a pussy to ride in the "cold"... I still have the hope that I will finish "The Phoenix" one day even if I don't ever ride it...

                              Ok, so last night I uploaded +60gigs of pictures from my home computer to my Network Attached Storage drive so I now have access to basically every picture I've taken in the last 10 years...
                              I'll try to keep this limited and if anyone is actually interested I'll post a massive photo-dump of lots and lots of build pics (spanning back to 2009!)...

                              This is going to hurt my soul...

                              "The Phoenix"

                              Frame: Polished outside, painted inside

                              Wheels: Brembo 5 spoke from an Aprilia (polished)
                              Tires: Pirelli Diablo Corsa
                              Exhaust: Hiperform headers (polished), delkavic undermount can

                              If it's got threads, it's probably Titanium...

                              There are probably other details that I'm forgetting and there is plenty left to be sorted out but here we go......sorry in advance if this is too many pix....

There is nothing I find more satisfying than looking at something cool and beautiful and thinking "I made that". - 6
