    So Far So Good?

    Here are the most recent mods. Cutting and stripping her down as much as I can.





    What do you think?

    I like the high up clean tail end. Very slick.

    Iīd black paint the rear frame showing from underneath the seat cowl.
    Add white Bros or Hawk Stickers to the tank
    plus cut down the front fenderīs side panels too

    What kind of headers you got there?

      The headers are M4 with a little magic by his Hordness. Are you talking about painting the rear subframe.

                  Nice job. Although it's not "cut down as much as you can" until you put in the HawkButt kit.

                    Great job! Did you grind off the bungee rack (the part that usually hangs down underneath the rear end?) Also is that a bros? Do all bros have chrome headlight cases and are they metal or plastic? Mine is black and plastic (I think)- I like the chrome- looks old motorcycle school, even if the rear end doesn't. I like!

                      The Bros always comes with a chrome head light.
                      Can be bought cheap in ebay/England
                      hence the Bros has been for sale there instead of the Hawk.

                        Yeah I cutoff the bungee rack to give it a little more streamlined look. Yeah the bros came with a chrome headlight bucket. I like the chrome but I also think the black would also look good.

                          That's a very clean lookin' bike. Could you post a couple pics of what you did to relocate the fuel pump while still useing the stock seat.

                            Here's the link that will give you an idea of where the fuel pump is and the progression of the bike.
