Evening IHR,
Great find, I’ll add it to the list!
As for the slipped down tube/BB joint, I’d be tempted to ease some adhesive in there (there’s some great products out there these days) and possibly with use of a long sash clamp, pop it back together again. Certainly wouldn’t ride it as it is.
As for the Hawk, I’ve not seen one of those before, certainly looks like the same family although with bulkier lugs, perhaps as a response to the fails we’ve seen on the Titanius’s ?
Who makes the Hawk?

BTW.. here’s what I’m doing to my other Titanius;

Sure thing. Actually there is not much to translate... Left side lists the parts, right side lists guarantees and "personal counseling with the store manager" when interested in the bike. "Karen´s" must have love that 🤘

Thing is "Praktiker" used to be a hardware/home improvement store and bikes sold there receive a special kind of dislike - at least over here.
Ad declares it as a Titanium bike... The almost identical Hawk Take Off states "Titan/Stainless steel frame", see here:

Cheers

Ah... so it's some kind of branded "Special" for the German home market, that might explain all of the survivers popping up in the Eastern half of of Europe.
