A good ride, all things considered

I too had problems with my face shield fogging up, even though I used a anti fog cloth. It seems that for any thing less than top gear cruising, goggles would be better. I also need to get better...

Since the motor was out, I thought I should clean the carbs. I poured the gas out. It was not really gas anymore, more like thin varnish. The float bowls had some sediment in the bottom. I probably...

So much for the 35" seat height

The Hawk is a 650

It has a few more horsepower than the 583 TA. I think your plan will be less work than mine. The TA frame is more suitable for modification.
