This post is a test. I have about 300 photos of the build. As you can see one pic is a duplicate, & I would like Mr. TNTbefree to note that some Goldwings did have a special Dish TV attachment as you can see in the photo of the PO's storage area for the bike.
Not sure if I like the front fender. I could cut more.

Not sure if I like the upholstery yet; it may be the wrong color.
