We picked up this 1984 Honda NightHawk 750 a little while back for a pretty decent price for a little side project to do in our "spare" time, of which we have none. The Nighthawk was perfectly capable of running just how it was with a little carb work and a new battery, but that is just not the "Wild Bunch" way. We decided that stripping the bike down, powder coating the frame, and going all out custom on the bike with new paint and LED's would be the right thing to do in our situation. Here are a few pics of the project thus far. Although it is not yet finished, we are getting there in all of our "spare" time. Follow along for the complete build as it happens and is on the road!
Above is what we started with, a complete bike.
After the complete breakdown of the bike, we separated out every nut, bolt, and piece into boxes and prepped the frame and swingarm pieces for powder coat as seen below. We decided to go ahead and go with the "silver vain" powder coat pattern because, well shoot, it just looks awesome!
Well that's as far as we have gotten as of now. Follow our blog or our facebook page to stay up to date on our build. We sure can't wait to finish it and get it on the road hopefully sometime this month!
Last weekend we decided we've had enough work for the week, so we headed up the mountain to scout for some deer and elk, with the hunts coming pretty quick. We walked up onto the pond above, just to catch an elk disappear into the trees. We weren't able to see what it was, but anytime you see an elk is a good time. We continued on the hike, heading over to a flat and spring that is about 4 miles up the mountain. On the hike we jumped quite a few deer and elk, but never long enough to see much, less get a good picture.
We came upon the flat, still excited about the amount of animals we had seen, and snapped a few pics. Here is just one. This flat is miles from any road, and we didnt see a single set of boot prints up here. Just how i like it. Just over the hill from this flat is the spring and some little drinking holes, so we snuck as quite as we could, knowing the possibility of seeing horns was pretty good.
We caught a glimpse of this little guy, and it was down hill from there. Next thing you know, we were seeing alot of deer and elk, and alot of horns! I probably dont need to say it, but i am excited for the hunt this year!
