Good looking bike! Did you anodize the frame/swingarm?

You will put a chain on that beauty, won't you?

8541Hawk will become famous soon enough
You might have wanted to go with a brighter color (or is that colour....) You might blend into the background on that thing....

Nice bike

yeah, a pretty close likeness there. You chose a good model anyway. Looks good Lloydie.

I had white wheels on the 88 hurricane I sold to get the hawk and they weren't too bad to keep clean. OEM wheels are easy to clean compared the pic above and my carrozzerias which are a bitch, fortunately black. You ain't gonna have to worry about gettin it dirty without a chain anyway. ha

Yep that's the one I wanted to reproduce the paint from :-)
I had a 95 blade with the 6 spoke wheels in white they were a pain to keep clean .
But this time I've gave the wheels ample coats of wax and will continue to untill it's back on the road .
This should make it easier to keep clean (I hope)
I'm still yet to fit the chain as I know I can't ride it until I do so its not going back on till the weather improves in spring lol

this is when you need an ill-weather bike, in my case the venerable xr650l, to ride anytime it's remotely possible; and when it's not, i start to perpetrate stupid **** like making snow chains out of dog leash.

Riding in the snow isn't too bad with chains, the problem is falling off and then trying to pick the bike up before you get run over. Ha

I try real hard to discipline myself to not ride when inclement conditions deem it unsafe. The problem occurs when those conditions persist longer than my self control.
