i picked the wing up last summer running on 3 cylinders. been playing with it last week rebuilding the carbs and just cleaning it up. i already set the point's, gapped the valve's, timing, just stuff that's not been done in a while. i know this because everything was way off.

today i plan on putting the carbs back on but i'm waiting on 1 vacuum piston to show up, should be here next week.

while looking it over it noticed 1 of the plug wire's broke, it broke when i pulled the carbs. being 34 years old i figure it's time for new coils and wire's. there's no real way to replace the wire except to slice them on, that won't do so.... i've had an idea for a while now about the 2.0 &2.4 coil packs for a dodge 4 cyl car. i planned on running them on my sohc 750's but i'm gonna give the wing the first shot, should work fine. only thing is, i forgot to grab the plug for the coil lol.

after that done, new muffler time. i have some muffler's from some harley that were siting in the junk pile so thats what i'm using. i'm thinking of punching some hole's through the center's for a little rumble. last time i punched hole's through some, i broke my finger lol

well the carbs are done for now, waiting on the piston. they didn't really need a rebuild, pretty sure the problem was the piston but figured the o-rings are old anyways.

now it's time to see what size the head pipe is and the mufflers. i held them up there and i think it should look pretty good.

the harley pipes will give it a nice rumble without punching holes in them, anyway stock hondas like back pressure so if you are not jetting the carbs try the pipes as they are

yeah thats what i was thinking about last night with the pipes. looks like it will mount up no problem and i don't want a stupid loud bike, kind of sick of the stupid loud crowd.

pic of carb's on the kitchen table, the wife loved that lol

don't lie - she works on your bike while you watch oprah..

the wife and daughter told me I don't need a work bench because I don't do any work.. I said ok then the kitchen table is my work bench.. fuck it.. I like the scented candle in the 1st pic - nice touch, lol

yeah the wife is a candle freak lol. she's also a neat freak so after i cleaned off the table, she cleaned it again. something about finger print's on the glass... lol

this weekend i got the carbs back on, engine cleaned up and exhaust mounted. i still need some band clamps for the exhaust, 1 3/4" clamp, stock harley size. heres a interesting tid bit i ran across while mounting the exhaust. the harley mufflers are 1 3/4", goldwing is 1 3/4 AND the rear mounting bracket hole's are in the same spot !! so for the most part it was a bolt on but i wanted the mufflers further back so i added some pipe. next step is put a radio on it.

i've been having some mad computer problems all weekend so....... gas man......... i'll load some pic's when i can lol

well i got the bike back together, been waiting on exhaust clamps. i only buy them used for $3 each, plain old HD band clamps. i was gonna buy new but after calling around and internet shopping, i decided to wait and save $30.

bike sounds pretty good but the carbs need to be tuned. i'm gonna wait intill it's a little warmer, nothing like setting carbs for colder weather and then resetting them for warmer temps lol. i'm glad i left the pipe's alone and i didn't punch any hole's, it sound's pretty good as is. little bit of a rumble but not stupid loud.

carbs are tuned and been riding the last 2 days, man it run's good !! exhaust sounds nice, not loud but has a nice sound. when your on the gas it sounds like a race car LOL !!!! it might not have HP but i know it has torque, just keeps pulling like a mofo. i've been eye balling some after market cams....

now i have to sort out the starting problem, not sure if it's the battery or the starterm or both. lucky for me it has a kick starter.
