Picked up my first Goldwing, love Hondas. I have built cb350 cafe racers and I wanted something a little bigger, more motor. I love the look of the motor on these bikes, has a very unique look.
So I landed on the Gl1000 and I found a sweet deal so I had to jump on it. My plan is create a Cafe/Hot Rod style bike. The bike is a little big, plan is to slim it down visually. Strip it down, fix what I need to, modify what needs to be, paint, powder coat, pin stripe. I am thinking a darker grey and black with metal flake with a lime green pin striping, but we will see how it goes. It will be a slower build working and with two kids under 4, be patient with me.
Progress so far; stripping it down, the fairing had to go, meet Whiskerfish while selling some parts, real nice guy and gave some great pointers. Site is great with more than enough info.
