Got a submission from Kusal. His description didn’t really turn me on but I emailed him and I got an immediate response with a link to some photos. Wow…what a brillinat job he’s done of a beast of a bike, the Honda Goldwing
Picked up an old and tired 81 goldwing that had fringe leather saddlebags a carpet covered sissy bar about 3 feet high and tall bars where someone wanted desperately to make a goldwing look like a harley.
Brought her home, took it apart and turned it in to a bob tailed bagger with vintage shoei hard bags to match the lines of the bike. Custom seat on modified pan with custom lighting, electrics and finished in several coats of white gold pearl.
Thing about the goldwings is that they have great bones. so I wanted to take off all the weight they carry and create a stripped down tourer that looked classic, kept things simple and had the same long distance riding comfort/ergonomics without looking tacky.
She gets compliments almost every time I take her out, so made me think I should submit to your blog.

"The pic was taken by one if the outfits that frequent the more-travelled roads at the bigger events over this way. They set up at roadside, and take photos of most everyone who passes by. You make a note of the time & check on their site later on. Cool pic, huh!"
