1990 Honda NT650 GT Hawk

This my 1990 Honda Hawk. The US model NT650, Hawk GT 647, RC31 was introduced in 1988 and produced through 1991. It has an aluminium box frame with the separate rear frame bolted on, and a unique, single-sided swing arm. This bike was way ahead of it's time and still is an amazing bike despite it's age.

  • Seat Cowl

    Now I'm modifying my Hawk to be more of an RC31. Not a true RC31 but a stock red take on it. Starting with this AirTech Seat Cowl.

  • Mirrors

    Adding these Mirror with LED turn signals and eliminating the stock turn signals. I never really liked the way that the front turn signals mounted with this fairing.

  • LED Turn Signals

    Adding these LED turn signals somewhere on the rear... not sure where yet. The face of the mirrors actually act as rear turn signals also.

    Painting is currently in process. This fender was backed into way back in 1990 and I never got it repainted.

  • Done

    Here's the nearly finished project. Still need some resistors to install the rear LED turn signals and drop the stock ones. New decals are on their way also...
