One day i will make one. When i see one i can't help but find things i would have done differently to it. That's what it's all about though.

I had a great time building mine from it's stock form ('92 Honda BC750 Nighthawk), didn't spend crazy amounts of cash experimenting but there were some parts I wound up never using cuz they didn't look right once they were on the bike. After a full season of fiddling with different ideas I finally got the look I wanted (post purchase in '96), it wasn't the quickest or most aerodynamic but I'd never seen another one like it after all the years it was on the road and it usually turned into a conversation piece depending on where I stopped. Sometimes I'd run it with the head and chin fairings removed and it would change up the look nicely. I was thinking about finding a black Honda 599 to pull another little project with, kinda reminds me of my previous machine being it was Honda's new generation factory replacement along with the 919.

I like the look, and what they do with the headlights.
What I don't like is when they take the tail and make it look like someone kicked it in the ass like this one. This bike is hott but the tail why???

I love them but wouldn't own one again as an only bike.
