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!


Thanks,

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!

  1. Excellent! I got to see the bike in person, and chat with the owner at the Rocker’s Reunion bike show in Indy not too long ago. Super great guy, and the bike looks even better in person.
