going to look at a late 70's goldwing tonight. if it turn's out to be a turd, i'll be a little upset for driving 2 hours.
for some reason, bike's always look better 20 feet away in a picture LOL

well i enjoyed the 2 hour ride home on a 1976 gold wing, it need's a little work but nothing major. standard fixes, carbs cleaned & sync, check & set the valve's, recover the seat, cut the wind shield down (suck is like 3 feet high LOL), and just a real good cleaning.

Awesome man.

Those windshields are huge! They go clear behind your head nearly....

Got some pics man?

What's the idea? Please o please chop it down. I LOVE bobber chopped classic wings.

my plan's right now are to get it running like it should, it seem's to be only hitting on 3 cylinder's.

after it run's good, i plan on getting another complete bike and cutting it up. thinking 3" stretch in the down tube, a little more rake and a drop seat.
