New project

Ended up getting another project... Should be fun as well as a lot of work. 1988 Hawk GT, a.k.a NT-650, a.k.a RC31. Cant wait to start digging into it. It came with a CBR F2 front end and a VFR rear wheel with a bunch of other goodies.
These bikes have a cult following, especially since it as only offered in the states for 3 years. The frame design is rad. Pretty much the same style frame as an RC30, RVF750, NC30 and MC28 NSR250... So yeah for its time, it has a lot of racing technology into it. Its going to be such a fun bike.
Cant wait to do this again. Circa 1994. My first RC31. HRP sweeper
My second one. Circa 1995. This one was dialed in. probably the best handling bike ive owned. HRP off camber. I think this is the year I won the Lightweight SS/450cc/twins class. CJ Remington and I won the Endurance race series in the same class that same year.
1995. Same year as above I also borrowed Paul Umholtz RS125 for half the season... And I think I got 2nd in the formula 3 class series.
Fun times. Now I just need time to work on it.
Anyone got a Fox twin clicker rear shock?
