Starting from scratch. Frame, truss fork, and wheelset original to the bike.

Frame cleaned up pretty good and there was a
decent amount of chrome on the triple steps hiding underneath house paint. Morrow hub with D3 date code and a ND S.M. front hub.

Tank and fender hunting now.

One of my favorite bikes that I hope to own someday. The "Wildcat siren" makes these for me. V/r Shawn

Thanks Catfish. A few of us at the shop came up with the design (borrowed from another bike stand on the market) but made of 1/8" aluminum. Originally built for mountain bikes but can also be used for ballooners.

Yes, that would be the cherry on the sundae for this bike. So the Falcons had the tire driven siren and the Blackhawk' s had the pancake horn? Was the chrome fork exclusive to the Blackhawk?

Here's a peek of the underside. What's going on with the strike above the M?

Most of the time Falcons had painted forks. But they were being made side by side with the Blackhawks, and I have seen one or two that looked to have a factory chrome fork. As parts were interchangeable..... But I think they were always cataloged as painted. How about some more shots of the stand you made?

Braces

After going through several sets of fenders for my Blackhawk, Catfish gave the the low down on what was correct..... they only had a single brace on the front and rear fender at a certain angle.

Thanks. Yeah, I've seen many like you said with the single brace in the rear( including catalog images), and some with the double. Still hunting I guess. I'd like to see a pics of your Blackhawk.

My Blackhawk is currently not put together as are about half of my bikes. The picture attached is how it looked when I purchased it. It had been setting in storage for an unknown time to me, and had acquired some peppering on most of the chrome. The clad wheels were toast.
The chrome parts have cleaned up nicely and I have acquired another killer set of clad wheels and the rest of the correct parts for a 34. = the unique “Elgin” pancake horn with flipper switch mounted to the handlebar, and a nicer seat, NOS stainless fender set with correct braces. etc.

Lobe the Blackhawk and Falcons, very nice find. Is that an older restoration?

Second set of braces. Single for the rear and a longer one up front. It just seems like a lot of room under the rear fender.

Looking for the spacer that goes here. Anyone?

And a truss plate.

oh ya the fenders close to the tire make a big diff in how it looks,if the braces are to long[and not some rare og brace]i have made a cut in the top crown[where it is rivited to the fender]and taken material out and made new holes to shorten brace.never did like the way the front of the fender fit on phantoms and b6,especially on repop fender sets
