    Welcome aboard Dustin. There are at least three of us active on Hawks in the Portland, Oregon area. Here's a snapshot of a group ride last summer.

      Welcome aboard Dustin! You've picked a wonderful machine and yours appears to be in excellent condition.

      Straying from the Hawk, any details on the Toyota truck in the background? My first new car purchase was a bronze '79 SR-5. Financially strapped as a young 20-something, i decide I could do without A/C b/c that would add another $5 to my monthly payment. Live and learn. On occasion I look to see if there are any out there, but I assume most have fallen pray to the dreaded cancer of oxidation...

        I picked up the Hawk in question, a 1990 with 25k on the clock. Mostly original except a set of VFR clip-ons. Going to find some original bars and mirrors, put new tires on it, and ride it ride ride it. Already really impressed with the torque, sound, and easy handling. What a charming bike. It's a keeper!

          Hi there, New member, but a Hawk owner off and on since they came out. I have an 88 in Grey now, totally stock and just over 5K on it. Too many other bikes to list in the collection, but my main collection is old Italian from all the factories. Ride every day when the weather is good, snow and salt here now......

                  New to the Hawk community but not new to the motorcycle community. After retiring from the motorcycle industry after a 45+ year career I decided I needed a new project. I've always wanted a Hawk GT so when the opportunity arose I jumped on it. I ditched the Spec II fairing, bag mounts and decided to get it track day ready. YSS shock, new fork tubes, Race Tech cartridge emulators, 520 chain and sprockets, fresh paint on the wheels and fork legs, stainless brake lines, DP brake pads up front. I was able to install GSXR rearsets using an adapter plate, worked out pretty well. Michelin Power RS tires, for now. Bike came with a Factory Pro jet kit and modified air box lid, pretty sure we're going to do more with that. Maybe remove the lid completely or do pods with a stage 7 kit. New fuel lines. Hope to get to the track in April to see what we have. Thanks for inviting me to the group. Looking forward to your advise and expertise as we

                    Welcome to the forum! Nice work.
                    Any plans on selling the take offs?
