Hello! thanks for letting me hangout on your forum!
I live in Portland, OR and have been riding for 20 years. I ride mostly vintage Japanese street and dirtbikes on the track and on the street. I love all motorcycles.

A friend and I are starting a machine shop and one of our first projects is making billet hex head fork caps for 37mm GL1000 forks. Made from 6061 aluminum with new rubber O-rings. These solve the common problem of the recessed allen head on stock fork caps, using instead a 26mm hex bolt cap, and they look great. Rotary tumbled to remove all machine marks, then the exposed surfaces have been rouge polished. For a show-quality shine, you'll need to finish them up with some Mother's or white buffing compound. Crafted in Portland, Oregon.
We are tying to see if there is a market for these and other Goldwing parts. We're also wondering what else we can make on our 3 axis cnc machine; thinking about 1100 fork caps with the air adjusters, or caps with preload adjusters. What else do people need?

happy riding!

How about making an oil filter adapter for the pre-1988 Wings?
