Is it possible to temporory remove the trunk on a 1800 Gold Wing and if so how does it look without it? A friend of mine has a Harley and he can add and remove the trunk for a different look. I don't own a gold wing yet but there's one in my future.
It can be removed but not without some permanent alterations, you cannot snap it on and off. JBJ cycles in Santa Ana Ca is selling a kit to do that, a friend of mine made his own, but it wasn't cheap
Here is the one my friend made
On the bottom of the trunk there are plungers, one for each bag, he uses them to open the bags, and there is storage when he raises that big chrome piece, he has his CB there.
Where in So Calif are you? I'm in San Jacinto and my friend with the trunkless bike is in Fallbrook.
