Hello to all fellow Goldwing enthusiast.

I have decided to re-join the Goldwing internet community since a long absence.

A bit of my history.

I've been riding motorcycles since I was a kid. My older brother fixed them, and I'd get to ride them on occasion.

My first exposure to a Goldwing was when my brother brought home a 1977 1000. (Black with blue/gold trim)

Later, in the 80s when I worked in La Crosse, WI, I managed to find another just like it. I was always tinkering with it, could never get it to run right, but it was good enough to get me hooked.

Now, I ride 1200s. My favorite ride is an '84. It started life as an Aspencade. But I removed the trunk and saddlebags, found a rear fender and chrome from an '84 standard. and got everything painted a nice metalic blue. I removed the air-shocks and air pump, and installed coiled rear shocks. It scoots nicely.

When I worked in La Crosse.. I actually established the very first (that I know of) Goldwing web site. It was fun.

I do a bunch of mechanical work on mine. I recently completed a stator replacement on my '87 Aspy. I've done those before.

In the spring, I hope to start to ride my latest custom creation. An '85 with the chamelion color shifting paint. It's all done. I just need to clean the carbs and it'll be ready for the road.

Anywho.. I look forward to conversing with everyone.

Very Nice! Sleek and understated. That's the way I like them, too. Let the performance speak for itself!

You've got me really curious about this "chameleon" look you've produced. I'm not a paint guy, but curious how you produce a "shifting" finish. Looking forward to seeing those pics, too.

Congratulations, Brother! You've got SKILLS!
