I decided to keep the exhaust system more traditional. The stock system exited through the swingarm and out under the seat. When I bought the bike there was an aftermarket carbon muffler and slip on pipe in a box with some other miscellaneous parts. I basically cut the stock pipe under the bike just after the collector. I cut the aftermarket pipe and used the bends to route it out the side and to the muffler. I tack welded it together and made a bracket off the foot peg mount to secure it. I still have to remove the whole system and finish welding it.

I took care of some details on the seat. Made a mount for the front of the seat out of plastic and attached it to the fiberglass then cut a rectangle hole in the frame for it to slide into. I glassed in a couple of nuts tacked to a bar to the back inside of the seat and made a mount on the frame to secure it with 2 bolts. I glued several layers of foam to the base and shaped it with a knife and different sanders. Just need to get it covered.

Pulled the bike apart so I could start painting all the components. Since the original Nighthawk was blacked out there was plenty to paint and powdercoat. I sent several parts to PC. I painted the engine and frame as well as some parts. I wanted to black out the forks but anodizing wasn't in the budget and I was concerned that paint would easily scratch so I had this idea to used large shrink wrap to cover them. It work pretty well only had to paint a small section on the fork to allow it to pass through the triple clamp. I also installed heavier springs and oil in the forks to stiffen up the front end.

Taking care of some details while everything is at paint. Added grips, levers and mirrors. Did some mods to the chain guard. I also got my seat back from upholstery.
