It will be on display at the Detroit, Mi Autorama the first weekend in March 2018. Come and see it in person along with about 899 other specialty vehicles.

One of the largest indoor custom car shows of the world.
The LSR bike that I crew on will also be there in the Bonneville display. BTW, it's supercharged too.

congrats J.R!
I was wondering if you could describe how she runs and handles compared to a stock wing and say, your CBX shown.
Thanks Dave

The only Gold Wings I've ridden prior to this one have been customers bikes that were: newer, bigger, not naked. So, I haven't got much to compare to in the early NGW world.
This GL of mine accelerates faster than many bikes I've owned including a FJR1300, thanks to the supercharger and medium compound racing tires. (No lift, just hook and book!)
With a lower center of gravity, the Racetech springs and valving up front and the Wilber Racing shocks out back, the handling is very good. Similar to a modern sport bike.
Additionally, when I made the handlebars, I wanted that "tucked-in" feeling. I wasn't certain how it would be on the road but, I've concluded that I hit the nail on the head with that mod. Just a centimeter lower and the controls would be digging into the shelter on turns. Not too low but a good riding stance, works nice with the lowered saddle height.
When the weather turns nice in the Spring I want to experiment with all the suspension adjustments including lowering the front end about 25mm or so. I'll see if those changes make any improvements or not.

Me sell a kit? No, sorry. But, I will sell the bike.

This was a basic kit that was offered when these bikes were new. It utilized a Magnuson 60 supercharger (popular on the 2.8L Chevy 60 degree V6 kit with a longer snout). I got this in a pick-up truckload of parts from Randall Washington about 3 years ago. Was on the fence about doing a deal until he pulled out the NOS blower that's on the bike today.

I threw away several of the components it came with (cheezy) and fabricated my own drive/pulley system, billet adjuster arm and support bracketry. Ceramic coated the manifold and blah, blah, blah double throwdown everything else.

Randall's 003 bike was a great inspiration for me to build this bike and I appreciate all the advise he's offered during the build.
