Default Honda Hornet 599 Retro-Fighter

Picked up a running 06 Honda Hornet that someone had already started to cut up and turn into a café racer. Lucky for me his skills didn't match his ambition so he gave up on the project and I got a great deal. So I had an idea and some inspiration from an old Honda classic. The CB700SC Nighthawk. I figured I could combine the two and have a more modern bike with a classic look. Not going to crazy on this one only because I still need to finish other projects.

Found a clean tank and tail section from a Nighthawk. Fitted the tank up and made the front mounts for it. I also trimmed the Hornet side panels a bit. I going to try and tie the side panels into the Nighthawk grab rail somehow. I will have make new mounts for the coils to fit under the new tank.

Made more progress on the subframe to support the seat , tail section and side panels. I will also mount all my electronics to this.

Had the idea to mate the Hornet side panels to the Nighthawk grab rail. I was able to join them enough so when I make the seat it should look fairly seamless. Also welded up the mounts for the grab rail. Cut the tail section down and mocked it up. The grab rail is really just for more of an authentic look considering I have reduced the bike to a single seat.

I lowered the position of the grab rail to give it a sleeker look but in doing so I made it wider at the top because the side rails went up at an angle. I bought a 2nd center piece so I could lengthen it to fit. Cut both pieces and welded the 2 longer parts together. I cleaned up the welds and bolted it back together.

Made my mounts for the electronics kept everything fairly close to where it was originally mounted that way I don't have to cut up the wiring harness to much. I used a smaller brake reservoir for a better fit under the seat.

I wanted a small belly pan that fit the shape of the tank and tail. I had a lower fairing lying around off a Chinese pocket bike so I cut it down to fit and made a couple of brackets to hold it in place. Also used a rear hugger fender off the same bike added some support trimmed it to fit painted it black and mounted her up.

Cut off the passenger pegs. I left a little room on the backside of the right rear set to possibly use as an exhaust mounting point. Man these had some weight to them probably lost 4-5lbs.

Started on the seat. I taped off everything so I could make a fiberglass base for the seat. I used a release agent over the tape so it could be removed easily then I laid down the glass. After trimming it up set it back in place, fit like a glove. Just need to layer in some seat foam and shape it up.
