Nice. Love the wheel and engine painted. One day I'll do that to mine. One thing i did that i love was to paint the to shelter cover. The leather was good but i wanted a fresh look.
I love my wings (both Hot and Gold) - check out my blog @ http://wingthing1000.blogspot.com/

I finally got the bike out of the basement, it was a long winter for me and the bike. I had fun restoring this bike, it was a good way to learn the works of a Goldwing. Now I have to adjust the carbs, it runs like a diesel, I will have to make one of those vacum gauge. Thanks to the people on this site that help in this project.

Great job. What tires are you running, love them. Something to consider next winter is of you want to paint the fenders or not. Takes at least a year to figure that out. Keep at here, you are very close now.
