      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

If you want close to 70 hp, I would maybe consider looking for a 550 Nighthawk. There was a 650 and 750 also but not 100% if or which one would have been shaft drive. I know the short time they made the 550, it was shaft driven.

The motor might be heavier than what you're looking for but the V65 Magna was also shaft driven. The Sabre might be another to look at.

Been a long time but my 650 Nighthawk was rated at 72 HP and was shaft driven. Was a fun bike quick bike being shaft driven center of gravity was high so cornering was a bit iffy but I was young and inexperienced.

I beleive the Sabers were higher HP at 90HP.

I dont know but I assume the drive train of a Nighthawk is simular to a shadow where the style of frame is what differs.

The 550 Nighthawk had more of an appearnace like the Shadows of that era only with an inline 4 vs. the V-Twin.

Still curious what Elwood has planned for the motor after he finds one.
