Zero cost Superhawk street fighter

I was really hesitant in taking my fairing off due to headlight issues and wondering if it would odd. Searched how to remove superhawk fairing , removed it and removed the headlight from the original fairing. Used zip ties that were laying around. I originally planned to only keep it while I'm painting my fairing but I might keep it for longer. Love the new look

Xeris ,
I'm pretty excited about owning my superhawk and pretty proud of its new look. I swear I was wondering what it looked like in person and couldn't just imagine it from all the pictures online. I didn't see many examples online so I felt like sharing my little project. Carpe diem!

Are you going to put the mirrors back?

CrankenFine,
While I'm in this "no fairing-defiantly not a street fighter phase" I'm kinda just riding it how it is with no mirrors (which actually is really tough and pretty unpractical) but I have tried to look for small carbon fiber bar end mirrors. They just have either been a) really expensive b) can't seem to find the right ones here's a pic with old stock mirrors

Just get the cheap Chinese round bar end mirrors for like $20. Those'll do just fine.

Love the look mate. I think we've got matching bar-end mirrors, picked mine up from amazon. Have you found a solution to front turn signals? I'm looking into tiny led turn signals ( I feel a must have)



Looks Great dirty_! ...or should I say it looks DIRTY!

I really love how the black frame looks on the Triumph Speed Triple


It could be my next little project for this winter. Anybody on here attempted in powdercoating the superhawk frame?

yea, I have little stick on LED's u cant see them much during daytime. At night they are very visible, I was more worried about night time driving. No, one pays attention during the day anyway.


ill post a picture with the turn signal on next time I get a chance

Maybe I should rename thread "in process of creating a street fighter" piece by piece I will make it an awesome fighter. As of now, it runs awesome and love searching for possible new parts to swap out. Def not "street fighter" worthy guys but I like the sound of it. I really want to swap out front and rear tire whatchamacallems to carbon ones I saw on an r6. I think that would look really cool.
