Finished.....The Hawkliner

I was pretty much AWOL for the last month with any updates to my Hawkliner but it has been 98% finished for the past 6 weeks. I was searching at least once daily on all bike forums, eBay, etc., trying in vain to find the light bezel and control panel I needed to finish my tank but this week I conceded defeat and am just going with the raw look. Perhaps I'll add those parts in the future but I'm not sure the bike needs them to be honest. I had also held off on even riding it until today, believe it or not, which was NOT easy to do!! I had one of my employees at my studio record my maiden ride around noon today and I'll post that video as well. No clicks, no rubs, no rattles on my first ride. That always makes me smile.

Thanks for the great contest and hope you enjoy the images.

RaT ON! Now that is a solid build. The all black works great, love the metal seat, super cool bars, fits you perfectly, and the Thickslick logos really stand out; in a good way!

L:heart:ve the ride vid! Well done. We should require a ride vid with every Finished Thread. These builds are art, but they are first; bicycles.

This might be my favorite 'non rusty' build in this whole BO 12. Srs.:41:
