New look for an old wing

Post by chief771 »



Good morning all! I recently got my 1980 goldwing out of storage to get it ready for spring. I rebuilt the carbs with a master kit from Randakks, rebuilt the front master cylinder (even the reservoir was leaking), derusted the gas tank (big job? Uffda!) Then removed the ugly vetter fairing and retro fitted a new headlight bucket and a harley Davidson windshield. Lots of work but I enjoyed every minute of it! Pics to follow

Looks great. I personally love the look of the standard wing, always on the lookout for one here in central FL.

Both of these bike were purchased as non running projects. Lots of swearing and work and they both run great now. I am very proud of what I accomplished with help from this forum and good friends. Thank you very much! Time to ride!
