Looks nice! Did you paint the timing belt cover white?

The white timing belt cover blends well with the fairing, good choice. Does she run as good as she looks? If so you are in great shape.

Yes, It runs great. I have tinkered/worked on it every day since mid February so no problems at all anymore. It is looking better now than in those pics actually. I appreciate the compliments guys! :D

I'll try to list most of the work I've done. New belts new water pump new fuel pump carbs rebuilt and synced all new cables new handlebars lots of parts removed and painted added chrome rear engine mounts new mirrors new radio lots of wires spliced soldered and shrink tubed to get everything going. Led lights, flushed and replaced all fluids new longer brake line because of higher bars new air filter new seat pinstriped bags new bar clamp new grips throttle lock the rest was pretty much detailing I'm sure I did more that I can't think of right now. I love old bikes I was bored with my 1994 Magna because it didn't need anything so I sold it. I'm on facebook if any of you guys send a friend request I'll approve it. My name is Buddy Rezendes just say you are from Goldwing Docs. I am going to shut it off while I'm on vacation next week but will be back on around the 4th of July.
