My Girl

Post by mrphillips0817 » Tue Oct 23, 2018 11:34 am



I have a 1982 Aspencade that I've restored from to bottom. I got rid of brown and tan color and painted her Wineberry. All new bearings, brakes, Dunlop tires, seat, water pump, shifter oil seal, new head gaskets, belts and tensioners, new radio, bumper with hitch, trunk light bar, converting to be ALL LED lights, made my own ring of fire. Shoot, this old girl is like a new one.

That's a real sweet looking 82' Wing. I'm nearing the final
stages of re-vitalizing my 82' Aspencade and can't wait till next
spring to get her back on the road. Lots of work getting these
Ol' wings back on the road but I know it's worth every minute
of my time. Judging from the looks of your bike, you have plenty
of time into your bike and it shows your hard efforts and work.
Your 82' just looks Great. Be safe and wish you the Best! ..

I bought all my crap on eBay and I had to do a little work on some of it but for the most part good shape I am just changed everything over to LED lights instead though. Thanks I appreciate it good luck on yours though let me see her when you get her done. friend of mine in California him and his wife just got run off the road and hit by a car who left the scene of the accident and it tore him up pretty bad his head went through the passenger side window on the van he has a broken fibula separated shoulder bunch of other problems as wife has a broken ankle shattered they both have had several surgeries so as always ride safe look out for the idiots.

quasi2008.......I actually HAVE a lower spoiler/light setup, but the chrome is totally trashed. I was thinking of getting it sandblasted and re-chromed, but the cost is so outrageous here in Montana, that I would have to send it off....SOMEWHERE. Also, the light frames are cracked and non-usable. I'm going to fab some up over this winter. She's about 98%. I'm still having a headache with trying to get to the wiring behind the fairing & counter weight. My turn signals aren't working, and I'm PRAYING I don't have to take the fairing off. Hand signals are good enough for me ..!! (Well....I'll actually get it fixed this winter, but it's still a headache.)
Ebay has been a pretty lucky spot for some of the stuff I needed to get her back to near glory. Cyclemax and Old Bike Barn have been good spots for parts also.
When I walk into the garage and see her.........IT WAS ALL WORTH IT. She's gorgeous. Still only 47k+ on her, but I'd like to hit the mid-50k's next spring/summer.
I looked for the lower spoiler/fairing (from Drag Specialties back in the day), but no luck when I was shopping. I might just have to fab one of those up too.
