Here's a custom street tracker bike that was just completed & driven for the past month. It starts. runs. shifts. stops. and drives perfectly.   This is my ninth custom bike build. Four (including this bike) have been featured on the popular custom bike website:  thebikeshed. ccMy last bike was sold to a customer in New Zealand. If you don't want to wait until this auction ends. shoot me an e-mail through eBay with an offer and I may consider ending it early. If the offer is right. I may even consider paying for all or part of the shipping. No expense was spared on this build. The only original parts used from the nighthawk donor were engine. swing-arm & frame. This is a fun little bike to carve around on. I guarantee you will not see another like this. These engines are known to be practically bulletproof. I built this with a minimalistic design. which makes it very lightweight and agile around corners. 1986 Honda CB450SC donor bike with 3000 miles. Title is clear and in my name from Wisconsin.

I tracked down the Hawk 18" rear wheel and spacers required so this bike would look better. Rear shocks are genuine Showa that had the springs powder coated black. look closely at wheels and you will even see they have the extremely hard to find little plastic Honda logos that snap on the ends of each spoke.

I have added some videos below. One shows cycle walkaround with lights and signals Other video shows startup and drive around with shifting- please note the temperature was 35 degrees. I warmed the bike up properly for 30 seconds prior to filming. Even with 35 degrees outside. it started up immediately and ran well after 30 seconds.

For those who are interested. I have added a few additional pictures below. The first picture is the donor bike for the cycle on this auction. As mentioned above it was a low mileage 1986 CB450SC Nighthawk in great shape. except for torn seat. As you can see. it does not resemble the donor bike at all except for the engine and significantly modified frame. The pictures seen after that are some recent builds that I have completed and sold. all to happy customers.
