Nice job deadly! Had a 97' black nighthawk myself....if I had only knew / thought of the potential it could of had like you apparently did. Probably would've kept it. Most I did was wire up some tunes with speakers and hooked up my gps. Didn't really think outside the box like yourself.

conversion success

I have a MX to dualsport conversion here for you.
I used to keep 3 B50's ready for riding. Street, dualsport, and off road.
The dualsport B50 got canablized in the past, leaving me with either on, or off,
so now the MX has stepped up to the bat!

Ingredienten:
Basis: Honda cb900f frame+blok+tank ongewijzigd
Uitlaat: Honda cbr900rr fireblade ( helaas onder het blok door, maar met een bescherming er omheen een mooie bescherming voor het blok)
Voorvork+wielen+remmen: Honda xrv750
Koplamp+plestik: Yamaha XT600

Nog te doen:
Kleuterbeugels om de tank en het blok.
plestik kap om de kont, zodattie niet zo veel zand schept.
carter (uitlaat) bescherming onder blok door.

Vandaag de eerste zandweggetjes gepakt: vanaf 40km/h in z'n 6 speertie er fantastisch vandoor. 40km/h in z'n 3 is onverantwoord (!)
De motor is met z'n originele uitlaat ongelofelijk stil waardoor er herten in de berm zoineens schrikken, da's al een reden voor een blerpijp.
Vorige week met het vehikel naar de RDW voor een kenteken, staat "gewoon" als cb900 geregistreerd, maar ik noem hem bij deze XRF900


ps: die afstapper: dat heb ik niet mee gemaakt, heb hem er zo bijgekocht..

Gegroet,
Marko

For people that don't do a fork transplant, what DOT dirt tires are there for 17" fronts? I was thinking harder supermoto tires might work, but they're being harder to find than I thought. Maxxis Presa's looked interesting, but I'm not sure how much more of a bite they'd have in softer stuff.

Here's more info from Robb's site.

http://hawkfan4life.com/AdventureHaw...turehawk1.html

Not sure if he's sold it or dismantled it, but the more I think about it, the more I realize I probably should have bought it from him. 1/3rd the price of an 800GS!

Im really glad to be getting so many complements on the Weehawk. When I started talking about doing this project all I got from others were funny looks (It seems alot folks just are not Nighthawk fans but Im glad to have found a few here that are).

You guys are keeping me inspired!
