I've always thought about doing a nighthawk.  Nice work so far... signed on!

thanks guys. it took a lot of vision, two major things that put me off initially were the fact that the frame is sloped at the rear and its impossible to make a seat look good on the stock frame. Also another issue is getting the pods dialled in on the carbs, but I'll get there. this bike is going to be more of a bratstyle cruiser instead of a cafe, but not too sure of the exact direction and the details of the bars, rearsets(if any) etc..

@HKSailor nah dude in the US till January and can only get back to it when i'm back in Hong Kong!

I'm on board for this build.  Good job on the frame and tank so far!
