trunkless 1500 goldwing my version of an f6b

Post by pontdog »



i bought this wing last fall and after i took on this big venture of doing this all myself replacing belts,new fork seals and bushings,steering head bearings new brakes,rebuilt calipers,new tires,air filter and adding LED tailights and signals and getting rid of my trunk as well as building new brackets for it and covers that i am almost done building,i know there are some people hoping i have measurements but i forgot to write down the measurements but it took alot of trial and errors oh yea the seat had to be cut down and reupholstered and a new bagger windsheild and plenty more that i am forgetting to mention and harley supertrapp exhaust .
i know there are some people here that won't like this but this is what i wanted and a honda f6b is out of my price range so this is my version,i am sure there is plenty more i didn't add to this story but if i see you next month at Americade say hi because it will be my 1st time there and i would be happy to tell you about it

Impressive

If I may suggest that you

Ride with your passenger's foot boards up to help save those obsolete side panels
Or
Use 15 inch fish leaders or longer attached as the pictures

I have sprayed the rubber grommets with silicone for the past 20 years to keep them soft every time I removed the side panels

Take your old windshield and make a headlight protector
See in How To Articles

Enjoy your Wing and Take Care
