Got my nighthawk ready for meltdown
« on: Apr 10, 2017, 21:31:30 »
so i found this it was sick sad and cheap



a little while later it turned into this













some highlights

i have rebuilt the motor including a new heavy duty clutch
some head work new intakes and dual 36mm mikuni flatslides
vance and hines exhaust with a custom supertrapp tip
new sprockets and chain
racetech front springs in rebuilt forks
cbr1000 monoshock and linkage
converted to hydraulic clutch
dcc mini electric tach and mech speedo on a custom upper tree
i powdercoated the tank as well

its needs a little more tweaking and maybe one more trip to the dyno

but its fast a wicked fun
