    Images of my hawk

    At last, images of my NT400 Bros / Hawk.
    will have a good look over it over the Winter Period, as the are a few things that need a tidy up, but I guess as its 1988 vintage, it will not be showroom conditon...

      You might be surprised how well that bike will polish up. Like the pipes for example. Good find.

        That's a nice clean little hawk there.
        .a And fwiw I don't feel they need to be perfect. Perfect hawks are ridden less..
        Don't spend money and buy, spend time and learn.

          That's a fine looking bike - it looks like its avoided any northern winters. I found that the tank on my Bros came up beautifully with T-Cut black colour restorer. I'd imagine that with some deep cleaning and polishing your NT400 will look almost like new.

            Hondas clear on these is actually pretty thick.

            A solid wet sand and polish will bring back almost any hawk tank I've run into as long as it's not scratches through the clear.

              Thanks you guys, I do like it and it handles really well..enjoying it so far and that can only get better next year.
              would like another original seat frame, but know they are as rare as a big win on the lottery...

                Wink Wink.....They don't have to be perfect is true. But I like having almost perfect Hawks to ride whenever. Sort of like riding an almost new bike.

                I wanted to ride this afternoon since the sun was out and 60 degrees. My new Rebel 1100 set and my perfect blue 88 went for about a 50 mile ride with lots of twisties. We had great fun together.

                  Nice, I think we are about out of those days around here. Woke up to snow and ice today for the second time this week. Just had a pallet of salt dropped off, got the plows down earlier in the week. Today rearranged the hay barn to get the mowers out, weed whackers, trimers, fertilizer, anything meant to deal with anything alive and growing went into storage. Calcium flake pallet, salt pallet, spreaders, snow blowers and shovel's in. Doors went back on the side by sides and the bobcat. Chords went out for all the block heaters.

                  Winter. Here we go. I'm NOT ready for another one.

                    That's why there are so many people in Fort Lauderdale and Tucson.

                      Congrats on picking up your Bros.
                      As others have said, she should clean up very nicely.

                      But one thing you definitely need to do is get rid of all those keys on the keyring and just use a very soft keychain.
                      All those keys bouncing around on your triple will chew it up in no time.
                      I actually only use the key with no keyring to prevent any damage at all to the triple.
