Default 1975 Goldwing

I bought a 75 Gold wing the other day. Its in great shape mechanically just need a cosmetic rebuild. Not sure which way I'm going with it right now. Bobber or mild custom. I may even try for 100% original. I guess I'll just have to see what suites me as I put it back together. I have the frame and related components at the sand blaster right now. In the meantime I'm doing some necessary maintenance and upgrades to the engine and drive train.

Have thought many times about making a Goldwing bobber Nailhead. I like how it looks there with the fake tank removed and the engine exposed hot rod style.

Years ago a friend made one into a Harley look alike. It looks so good most people have to do a double or triple take to figure out what it is. I'll be watching yours.

In High School, my girlfriends Dad brought home one of the first 2 available in Colorado when they came out. I remember how strange I thought it looked. That bobber sure is cool

I'd like to do one of those into a cruiser trike. Don't think I could keep a big bike like that up on two anymore.
