My RWB Nighthawk S

Every since I had a 84 Nighthawk S after I graduated HS in 87 I have always wanted a 86 RWB. Well here it is.

I have to use the "Direct link" when using imgur. It also makes it easier if you click the little cursor arrow (far left above the smilies) that switches
the view.

That is a great survivor right there! It's nice to see that there are still some in original form out there.

Wish it was original but it's not. The bodywork has been redone by po. It's nice enough but not perfect.  I like to tinker so there are minor changes on the way, have bar end mirrors coming as I always hated the stockers. Want to powder coat the calipers red same as the stripe with white or silver lettering this winter and add SS lines, Maybe some other subtle mods but mostly cleaning and refinishing. I will use salvage parts when available and save the originals. Not sure if I like the seat or not, will probably try to find an original. This is my midlife crisis and is still much cheaper  and safer than an old muscle car or an affair with some 20yo girl. I spend as much time just looking at it as I do riding it, and a lot more time looking at parts.
