Just read the first post in this thread. Follow the instruction and post a pic (up to 3) and a list of any mods you have done, It's as easy as that.

Nice set up lloydievtr, I like your bike mate! I would suggest one thing though if I may, your bike is leaning very low on the kick stand, there is an easy fix to this, please refer to the following link if you interested: https://www.superhawkforum.com/forum...kstands-24151/ #35

Mike'll get to it here soon I'm sure!

Yes, it's very possible, just attach them with the little paperclip at the top of the little dialogue box. If you want it to look really good, you can use the HTML of the photo once it's attached and "insert image" so it shows up big in the thread.

+1 Really great looking versions of the bike from across the pond. Shayne's was great but these new interpretations of the bike are really trendy - over the top. It takes a lot of work and a lot of buddies to pull this off. Or lots of money! Hat's off to your builders and designers.
