My personal favorite is still the early variation with the cylindrical tank under the seat. I really like the lines of the bare frame showing. My 2 cents...

Sheesh. I wanted to shoot him five pages ago. But, I'm with TT. I also really liked the look of that cylindrical tank mounted sideways. Very unique and utilitarian.

:lol: :lol: :lol: I'll let him live until the end of february, because I have no time to build before. Fortunately, I do not pay him per new idea or variant. :IDTS:
I also like the lines of the frame, I have rarely seen so far, and I also like the back free wheel. And to mount later a tank under the seat is easy.

For those who also like to show the frame and a naked rear wheel.

I think slope the tank to match the frame angle.

The blue line to follow the white. (That's it, I'm tapping out.)

So as a few pages ago, before the wrong tank came again? Except that in this new variant, a real tank is integrated.

The speedometer motoscope pro by motogadget does not get along with the temperature sender unit of the goldwing and you have to replace it. The manual on the picture below simply shows how easy it should be and dont explane more. However, the carburetor on the left, or the radiator shroud on the right is in the way. It is very difficult to see the sender unit at all. I did not find anything on the net how to remove this sender unit. To remove the radiator shroud it looks like you have to remove the two engine hold screw. Does anyone know anything?

The radiator is removed. And :shock: :-D ..... I now see the boxer engine in full glory. Let's see if there is a solution to driving without radiator or converting the bike to the worldfirst air cooled goldwing.
