Reader Ride. A Badass 1978 Honda Hawk 400T Bobber. Yes. You Read That Correctly....

If you've followed this blog for a while you'll know that I just love builds like this.  Ted Brecheisen sends in more proof that you don't need big bucks to build a fantastic bike.   I used to own a stocker as a kid.  Never imagined it could look like this!

Ted Writes:

Great blog site. Love your two stroll one also. Have 2 excellent RD350's (stockers)
Here are a couple of pics of a 78' Honda Hawk 400t the we did over the winter. It was a throw away we retrieved and started chopping. It's low budget but cam out pretty good. The swing arm has be extended 4" to get a little more wheelbase. The front old Goodyear DT dirt track tire was the start of the inspiration to head to the dirt track look. Tank is a 88 Yamaha Virago 250, license plate bracket is two 5hp Briggs connecting rods. Handle bars awe from a Yamaha ATV. Rides great and has good handling manners. Cheap fun!

Awesome Ted. Thanks! And if you get a chance I'd love to see those RD350's! Always in the hunt for good 2-stroke pics for the other site!
