Default Firestorm Superhawk tailfairing conversion

Looking for some options and knowledge, have reached a stop.
Converting my beloved Honda Superhawk in to a naked /streetfighter with the idea in mind of how Honda would have done it.
Very lightweight with great suspension and brakes, and fun to ride.
Once finished it will be painted the Acura Curva Red as on the new NSX.
Everything has fell in to place so far, but I have run in to a wall. I'm nearly done with it but cannot decide what to do with the tail fairing.
Since 97 when I bought it new, I have been unhappy with the porpoise looking rear cowling.
I have considered the 748-996 mono tail, but wonder if it is really that much better.
The cbr tails of 2006-2010 are way too long I've seen those and they look really bad.
Looking for something more and angular and aggressive, to match the Cb1000r front lamp and cowl.
Have thought maybe a GSXR or R1 tail but don't want spend money on parts and it be no where close to fitting.
Any info would be greatly appreciated, thanks in advance.

Thank you hrdr for those pics that's first time I've seen those bikes!
All look better, but love the gsxr tail.
Would really like find more info on what was involved in the change over.
Hopefully someone can chime in knows more about the build.
It appears the stock subframe was just modified on it. Hope so!
