the front end is off an 05 cbr1000rr

and bubbha its a hawkgt not to be confused with a nighthawk, thats like spitting in my face. lol

hawkgt was produced form 1988-1991 650 vtwin, first production bike to have dual spar aluminum frame, first single sided swing arm. I know the RC30 had it first but how many did they make? vfr and ducati did the single sided swingarm after this bike showed it could be done in large numbers. It was branded has the "Bros" in the UK and Asia. Didnt sell very well during the production years because for a few more dollors you could get a cbr it was really a bike ahead of its times. And theres more but I gotta go to work.

That's a sweet bike jaysunOne. The Bros/HawkGT are still popular in the UK, especially Ireland, just RARE.
