    Honda 919 Nighthawk Copycat

    Worked on the seat padding. I glued several layers of different density foam together and shaped most of it with an angle die grinder with a 2" sanding disc.

    Honda 919 Nighthawk Copycat

    I added a rear brake master. I didn't like how far back the rear-set mount put the master and it was in the way of my exhaust, so I opted for a CBR1000RR master which had the reservoir inlet on the opposite side of the master for more clearance. I also made a new mounting bracket to bring it...

    Honda 919 Nighthawk Copycat

    I originally was going to use a VFR swing arm on my 78 CB750 but there were several issues. The length of the arm was more that what I wanted and the offset of the sprockets was an issue. Now I have overcome the offset issue on other builds including this one, In my opinion a Hawk GT swing arm...

    Honda 919 Nighthawk Copycat

    I installed rear sets on the bike. They were made for a CBR600RR so I made brackets to mount them to the Hornet. This will also allow me to move the peg position if I choose to.

    Made a seat pan out of fiberglass. Just need to make a couple of mounts for it then I can glue in the foam and shape it.

    Honda 919 Nighthawk Copycat

    Made side panels out of aluminum to join the tank and tail together. Welded them at the seams and cleaned them up for a more finished look. I will make separate filler panels to cover the airbox.

    Honda 919 Nighthawk Copycat

    Making mounts for the tank was easy enough,but I had several clearance issues, one was the coil, that I had to relocate a little lower, second was the airbox had to be trimmed a bit and will need to be resealed, third is the radiator cap is mounted under the tank and will have to be relocated...

    Honda 919 Nighthawk Copycat

    Well the only thing a VF800 swingarm and 919 swingarm have in common is the diameter of the pivot bolt and length of the arm. The first issue was making spacers to center the wheel. I was able to tack these to the frame easy enough. Which brings up the second issue, the spacing from the center...

    Forks mounted! I trimmed the unnecessary stuff off the top clamp, attached risers and bolted on the bars.

    Honda 919 Nighthawk Copycat

    I've been collecting parts for the last month or so. I picked up this 09 R1 fork assembly. I needed a fork the was long enough. The R1 forks are 20mm shorter than stock 919's but still longer than most CBR forks that I was considering. They have a little less offset so the combination will give...

    Honda 919 Nighthawk Copycat

    I've been wanting to do a big brother in red to the 600 Hornet Nighthawk bike I built a couple of years back. I came across a low mileage Hornet 919 so here we go again. This build is going to be a bit more aggressive. I going to use a VFR800 single sided swingarm CBR929 shock, and a Yamaha R1...

    The bike handles and rides more like a modern bike with the new frame geometry and the modern suspension wheels, tires and brakes. I have pushed it a little bit and it feels really stable. I have kept an eye on frame although I over engineered it. The CNC parts add a lot of strength to the...

    Hollywoodmx's XV920 Tracker - Quick Build

    If you look at my build page you can see I made 2 aluminum manifolds also used cam tensioners from a newer virago for clearance still a pretty tight fit. For my throttle cables I used the pull FCR cable from the throttle to the first carb and then used a cable from push side of the first carb to...

    1983 XV500 Cafe Racer

    I totally understand trying to find time to work on the build. I think we both started our XV builds around the same time. Exhaust looks great ! Keep up the good work.

    Finally!! I have a completed and running bike. I still need to take care on some details like buffing the paint and really cleaning the bike up some more. The bike runs pretty well considering I took a wild guess at the jetting, need to spend a little time dialing it in. The exhaust note sounds...
