Trade VTR SuperHawk for an RC?

Long shot I know but......I desire an RC so I thought I would post just incase someone would like to trade an RC for my SuperHawk.
Anyways here are the details.....

I just purchased a 2003 VTR1000F SuperHawk from a buddy of mine. I had one previously and loved it so I didn't hesitate to buy this one but I have had a craving for an RC for quite a while.
It has just under 5900 miles on it, yes not even 6k miles.
Two Brothers Exhaust, upgraded R/R, Manual CCTs, all the general issues that need to be taken care of. Excellent projector headlight setup that is basically the same design as seen on my yellow Hawk.
This is the only pic of the Hawk that I have right now.

Long shot I know but thought I would throw it out there just incase.
Pm me if interested

Thanks.... I drew the headlight up in a CAD program, waterjet cut it and fabricated it all up so my buddy did the same to his. I just supplied materials. This one does have blue LED backlight though.

and......as requested.... 2 of my other girls

Ah birds of a feather LOL! I'm on TA number 6 - I have thread somewhere in here with pics of my latest LT1 Vert to LS1 Turbo conversion but my first was 1981 Turbo TA with a SLOOWWWW 301 Turbo and I still miss that car... Cheers and good look with finding a swap.

Yea the turbo cars were pooches but still purty as can be!

My dad had a '71 Trans Am 455 when I was a kid. He used to get me to start & warm it up in the mornings, which would naturally put a smile on my face.

Didn't handle particularly well, but was still pretty much the quickest thing on the road. I remember his anti-social burnouts. The engine made great music too
