    November-December HOTM - Regular Hawk of The Month!

    As promised, we're back to Hawks to close the year.

    Got a hawk?
    Does it run (or not)?
    Pretty proud of it?

    If so, post up some pics and your story, and we'll vote for our favorite based on conjecture and gut feeling

    Nominations close Dec 4th.

            Do I have to re-post or do we all already know the daisy bike?

            I'ma keep running it in every hotm it can fit in until I win one.

            Maybe next time let's do a "Honda Sonic Grey Pearl and Fuchsia Hawks HOTM"
            Don't spend money and buy, spend time and learn.

                      Also for your consideration, is my 1988 Bros. I’ve owned it since 2004 but it hadn’t been on the road for about ten years up to 2019. That year I bought a small milling machine and that inspired me to drag the bike out of its resting place and sort it out. Since then I’ve replaced or modified almost all of it. That said, I’ve tried to respect the line or spirit of the original design.

                      The main mods:
                      Engine: XRV750 engine bored out to 760cc with high compression JE pistons, stage one type gas flow (by me) and experimental dry clutch.
                      Exhaust: Standard pipes and a Fuel race can (with a bit to quieten it down)
                      Carbs: Standard carbs with homemade adaptors to take aluminium bell mouths, Mikuni vacuum fuel pump
                      Front Suspension: ZXR400 forks and yokes with bottom yoke fitted with NT650 steering stem.
                      Front Brake: Tokico 6 piston calliper on standard front disc, with homemade adaptor, Brembo radial lever
                      Front light/Fairing: Simpson Detour Predator, with quick release Dzus fasteners
                      Instruments: cheapo tachometer/speedo on homemade mounting with rubber bushing, VDO temperature gauge, big red oil pressure disaster light
                      Wheels: NT650 Mk2 three spoke wheels
                      Rear Brake: 2 piston Brembo with homemade adaptor, torque arm etc.
                      Seat: Fabian single seat with homemade foam upholstery, attached with four stainless Dzus fasteners.
                      Electrical things: Home brewed keyless ignition, lithium type battery in seat hump.
                      Rear suspension: YSS shock
                      Mudguards: carbon ZXR400 front, modified Triumph hugger.
                      Tank: standard, with modified quick-release mounts and dry-break fuel line.
                      Other stuff: Homemade chain oiler system with electric pump and aluminium tank, pipe through swinging arm; blue silicon water hoses; underseat area cleared up, homemade aluminium licence plate bracket; homemade rear brake lever and gear lever; homemade titanium side stand; homemade aluminium and Teflon chain roller; Fabian type belly pan with homemade aluminium brackets and Dzus fasteners; homemade aluminium disc lock holder; homemade iPhone holder; fake Ohlins damper with homemade brackets, homemade engine oil filler; homemade aluminium chain guard and front sprocket guard; fasteners are almost all stainless steel or titanium.
                      Paint: Mostly original Honda on tank, otherwise spray can gloss black
