Nobody likes my big VTR, so I'm not going to try again with that. What about my little VTR, is it eligible?

Someone post their bike !

How hard can it be?

All VTRs are worth looking at no matter what their condition .

Just because someone has spent mega bucks and countless hours on their bike shouldn't deter someone from posting their bike in this section.

Come on guys, let's liven this place up a bit!

I want mine to be complete again before entering this. All my pics of the completed bike are from last year and the bike will be in better shape after this round of mods.

If I can get an official ruling that my 1/4 scale VTR is eligible, then I'll post it.

I feel the same way. I want the plastics on my bike painted before I take any pictures.

Yep, it's a VTR, but not a Super Chicken. The thread is called VTROM, not SHOTM, so technically I think I should be eligible. But in the spirit of the law??? That's the question. I don't want to **** anyone off

As of late, we have not had a lot of traffic in this area. Because of this, I say yes.

If you look at the data, the number of people that visit this site daily that aren't members, we would have a bunch more bikes for the VTROTM, if they all entered that is. Too bad they don't make a username and password and be a member of this fantastic site. Come on you non members!

Ok, what's the worst that can happen? Delete my post? Banned? You only live once!
Owner: Me
Year: 1989
Colors: Ugly, but that's what makes it so cool
All stock except for one minor mod. Can you spot it?

Yes, custom slip on. Now I can actually hear the engine. Maybe a little too much?

My baby

So this is my second hawk my first one helped me get my second wife who is in one of the pics below but like all things good I had to pay bills... most of us know the story sadly. So when we found this poor beat up red hawk in the middle of Wisconsin we started our rescue plan... She is now House of Kolor colbolt blue with carbon fiber wet dipped accents, 520 chain kit set up for off the line, high mount Jardine exhaust ( Thanks Captain for the set up!!), Corbin seat that started out yellow now covered in gator that was done by my buddy's wife, new voltage regulator and carbs synced. We just went through everything on it I had no clue what the last owner had done so we started from scratch. I hope the pics turned out bigger this go around for some reason the system won't let me send the originals.

I love that color. Many years ago, my old '90 Honda CRX was painted Cobalt blue, and currently all the suspension components on my 240Z are painted Cobalt blue.

If I may?
Mods, as I see them:
CRG, ASV, Pazzo, or china knok-offs levers, points taken for red adjuster levers
After market tinted windscreen, less second bubble
Carbon fiber front fender, blacked out front and chin faring. Points taken for no matching rear hugger
Scary reptilian seat cover, points added
VFR esk flush mount front signals
Grips to go with general blue/black theme
Beautiful (for blue) blue paint. Bonus points for having done it yourself
Frame sliders
Blacked-out rear peg mounts
Rear fender mod
Clear tail light, beyond that, hard to say
Jardine high mounts, without black heel marks, bonus points given
As stated earlier, 520 chain with smaller rear sprocket
UV hand sanitizer or scorpion search lights, depending on your OCD or geographical location

Nicely refreshed Superhawk. Well done and......

Congratulations on winning July's VTROTM

No malice intended with my remarks.
