Decided to rescue/adopt this lost critter. All original and in need of some TLC.

This is my last rescue/adoption project; 1978 Honda Hawk 400. It was in worse condition than the 650.

Well, I finished my rescue project this week. Calipers rebuilt, master cylinder rebuilt, new fork seals, tapered steering bearings, new tires, seat cover, carbs rebuilt, 95% of the gaskets, seals, and bearings are new. Frame painted and engine cleaned painted and polished. Lots of cleaning and polishing. I had a lot of fun and the bikes starts at a touch of the button and runs smooth. Now I need to take it down the Blue Ridge Parkway.

Very nice. There is a lockable removable trunk for that rack.

I have the trunk and it is in great condition, but I need to buff it out and get a good wax on it.
