VTROTM April 2017

There are new members, some that are lurkers, that have a SH. Lets see them.
Would like to post some clever incitement for members to post their rides, but (sadly) I am all out of clever (today).


Picture (REQUIRED) 3 Max! Please limit picture(s) size to 1024 x 768.
Open to all Super Hawk Forum Members.
You are limited to 1 entry per month.
You can only nominate your own VTR. (projects, daily riders)
Candidates will be nominated up until the 15th of the month or when 15 nominees have been made, whichever comes first.
A poll will then be set up (on the 16th if less than 15 nominees)
for everyone to vote for VTROTM for that month and close on the last day of the month.
All participants who vote will get to vote only once per month so make it count!
Negative comments, criticism, harassment, and all around bad manner wont be tolerated.
If you have won VTR of the month, you cannot enter your bike for 12 months.
In the event of a tie, a 7 day poll will be set up to break the tie.
Rules subject to change / amendment at any time.
Description of a candidates bike should include the following If available:

Show me yours and I'll show you mine !

Shute, reminds me of games I used to play when I was young.

I agree with Wolverine, There are some fantastic bikes on here that deserve to be shown to all.

Well I guess I'll kick it off and beat the rush!

I've had the bike for less than two weeks, so nothing serious yet...

Mods:
Worked out the borked wiring and installed a new Smoked LED taillight
Worked out the borked wiring and fixed the front lighting
Awaiting new mirrors with turn signals
Others unknown - Previous owner used her as a track bike

Looking for spacers for those mirrors
Need to do the CCT fix

Take that old stick in the mud forum members.
IT_Mike how about a list of mods. No matter how few or many.
How do the V&H cans sound?

The V&H exhaust is loud but good. I need to replace the screws (rusting) and I'll confirm my suspicions then; I believe the baffles are gone.

Ohh the mod list can grow a little
Rear fender eliminator
Flush turn signals
V&H exhaust
Looks like a Zero Gravity Double Bubble screen.
The polished wheel lips look great.

Awesome addition to VTROTM.

Oggy *****,

Your forks look to be a long way through the top tripple!

Raise them up and fit a shim for the back shock.

It should handle a lot better, especially on the gas out of corners.

Welcome !

It is a nice looking bike.

As previously stated wher is the "Old Gaurd "

Crux and the boys .

If other members post I will.

There are some very special VTRs out there and they deserve to be shown even if they are not being ridden. I am lucky as I can ride all year round !

Pics please !

I'll throw my project bike in on this. Although it's not completed, it's good enough to get a good idea of how the finished bike will look.

Details on the bike:
~1998 Honda VTR1000F
~Motor has been rebuilt with 11:5/1 pistons, balanced and blue printed......heads ported.
~Handmade aluminum gas tank, rear tail section and seat.
~All electronics are hid under the tail.
~Front fork lowers and tripe clamps are powder coated black.
~Alloy rearsets.
~Open reverse cone megaphone exhaust.

Here's a couple photos:

Now we have a contest! At least, I think this feels like a contest. It's been a while.
