    Noob with my first bike

    Bought myself an 88 Hawk for Christmas. BTW, does anyone here read German? It appears this site has a solo seat cowl for our Hawks.

      not perfect, but gives a rough estimate.
      made to order, not a 'in stock' piece
      pricey yes, about 160 USD before shipping

        hi everyone. 160,- are way out to much.
        I can place bulk order on hawk seat covers here in Germany.
        Sell for about $70-80.
        Mine used to look like this.
        Bradrenea is now having mine

          Would you oppose to being our middle man to something like a group purchase? Perhaps we can start a separate thread to see how many folks here in the US are interested before embarking on this venture?

            Holy shit. I want it.

            I that a stock seat under there? God, that looks better than a Corbin!!!
            If you would be comfortable acting as middleman, lets get a group order together!!!!! WOOOOOOOOOOOOT!!!!

              Something just dawned on me... we've got one thing the List doesn't.

              The super-cool Germans (and their uber-fabricators).

              Thanks for all your contributions to the Forum, guys!

                Yeah, we got a small but serious group of hawk owners in Germany.
                Itīs (our) pleasure to contribute to the american hawk community.

                Everyone interested in a seat cover please let me know within this and next week so I can forward and process your bulk order.
                The more get together the more discount Thomas is likely to grant.


                Same cover in red color. See pic below.

                  I found those a couple months back when I was desperately looking for one. Only problem was I could not find anyone that spoke German. Member "JR" was corresponding with the company but we never got anything done with it.

                  I think they make a Hawk look like a total different bike. Can't wait to get mine!

                    I've sent you a PM. I believe we should start a separate thread in the "Buy, Sell, Trade" section to alert other members of this great opportunity to purchase this seat cover through our friends in Germany.

                        Allright, everyone of the hawk gang who wants a solo seat cover please,
                        email $80.- to my paypal [email protected] within lets say 7 days.
                        Minimum order quantity 4 pieces.
                        The price includes shipping to your individual place.
                        New cover will come made from GFK, ready to slip on, varnishīs up to you.

                        When the cash flow is through I will forward your order. Will keep you up to date in this thread when the covers are ready to ship.

                        How else can I help?

                          Fabian, what does GFK stand for? I've never seen the covers before and this is awesome...

                          And thanks for playing go-between, of course.

                          How long do you think before you receive the covers and can ship out to all of us? This is a custom order, I guess?

                          If you waited for more than four orders, would the cost go down at all?

                            Was wondering the same things myself Doug! I'd be onboard too if the price came down another $10... Then I could convince myself that I really do NEED this, and it's too good a deal to pass up!
                            As it is now, I just WANT it... hehe That and US->CAN exchange adds a few bucks, further tipping the scales to the wrong side...

                            Time is no matter... it's winter... I'd be happy waiting for others to get onboard.

                            Oh... and thanks Fabian, for the offer!
