So a local buddy of mine is getting ready to move and didnt have time to finish this bike so I bought it from him for dirt cheap. Here is his old build thread on it
http://www.customfighters.com/forums/showthread.php?t=54195
Pictures of how the bike looks currently

List of things I need to do:
Install intake cam and time the engine and break it in
Redo the tail and buy a seat

Increase rear spring rate
Buy/build new rear sets with shift and brake linkage
New tank mounts
Headlight/ taillight/ turn signals edit: found my taillight and rear turn signal setup, now I just need to find a fitting headligh
Get a battery (realy want an 8 cell antigravity but I'm not sure if I can bring myself to spend that much)
Cut up the headers and build an exhaust that does not suck
Its a soild start to making a cool bike from something that was not awesome but it has a ways to go before being rideable. Hoping to have it on the road in the next month so I have most of the summer to ride

Congrats on the vip membership!

Let me know if you want measurements on those forks.

Also looking forward to someone else dissing the hawk so we can flip them off.

To be fair...I never said I wasn't...Besides, I need people to bust my balls. I prefer it that way. Also, I was thinking of the 500 variant of both bikes. The larger bore nighthawks did look completely different.

Hitman, what size is this little demon?

Its a 650. I need to go get some steel to remake the rear tank mount, and once my seat comes in I am going to be building a completely new subframe. The plan is to bring the back of the tank up about an inch and a half along with moving the seat mount up to match and making it just big enough to fit the seat. I doubt the welds will be real pretty due to only having access to a flux core mig machine but thats why grinders exist.

You will have to excuse the foward controls, I assure you I will be running rear sets

My seat got here todsy so I can start cutting up the subframe and making that fit. Pretty damn happy with how the seat fits around the back of the tank, should make for a nice smooth transition

Should have worded that differently. Did it have forward controls on it? If yes do you still have them? Been looking for a set. Maybe we could work out a trade? Or you want to sell them? End of questions lol

No, the foward controls are just something from the photoshop
