Just checkin, couldn't find much of anything thru Google. Was just curious if anyone knew anything about a GL1500 being built up and hot-rodded.? Got a local cat that hangs in the same circles I do that does custom sheet metal work BY HAND. Lookin at some of his former projects the thought of mebbe doing something with Buster when I make a move to an 1800 came to mind.
..Call me ******* or infidel, but a GL1500 in flat black, with minimized chrome extras and a cammed over motor just gives me a l'il chubby.

Thanks in advance for any useful input. :cool: d:^) Schneeks..

Well, if you want a Hot Rod Wing, you want the Valkyrie.
The engine has hotter cams and 6 carbs.

Hell, Old Son! It's YOUR Wing! Do whatever you want with it! And then show us the results.

P.S. Sorry to hear about your "lil' chubby" condition. I hear there are support groups for that, though I guess you guys don't really need a whole lot of support!:p:D

There's lots of untapped oomph left inside that GL engine, but there's not a lot of info on how to relese it. Imagine the look of this beast in matte black if you need something to em, increase your 'condition';)

A whole group, eh.? Schweeet.!! Lemme dig out my old toga.. ;):D

Trike Lady- Eh, not really. A Valk is a very nice bike, but still a cruiser in my eyes. The full Wing has a lot more "that's no moon, it's a space station.!!" type appeal to me and looking at the lines of it a minimum of dressing up would go a long ways t'wards giving it a very "stealthy" and evil "Darth Vader" look. Hmmmm, a Wing with a little attitude to dish out. Without springing for a Rune. :eek::D

This cat's done some very tasteful work on bikes. And gets a complete "I'm not worthy" bow for doing it all by hand. Just got me thinking.. d:^) Schneeks..

The fellow that had his shop in the back of CycleMax did a stealth Goldwing. pulled all emblems, flat black paint, next to no chrome, want to say a wind bender w/s and a few other mods. Sweet ride.
