1974 Black Hawk Superspeed

German built 1970s Three speed motocross bike.

German built 1970s motocross bike, before and after resto. Originally bought on Ebay UK in a bit of a mess (see picture). I bought a pair of Mission trials wheels and the chunkiest tyres I could find and guess what, they would not fit. After heating up the rear loop to an orange glow and a bit of gentle persuasion with a lump hammer and a scaffolding pole I managed to shape the frame and fit the new wheels on. This bike is still not finished, but I thought I would update the picture and give a little bit of info. As you can see I have gone single speed. All I need now is some box type bars. I have just bought a Velamos Rapido for the bars, but when it arrived I realised that it is probably too good to break up.
Any more info on this or any of my bikes is more than welcome.

You did an amazing job on this bike, if I would have seen your creation as a child in the 70s it would have been my bike of choice : )
