This isn't much of an update, but in an earlier post I was trying to describe what direction I was going on this project. The bike is a 1989 and most of it was/is in boxes when I ought it. My intentions are to build the bike to not necessarily look like a GL1500, but still have the ride and handling. As you can see, I have a long way to go -- In the attached pictures you can get an idea where I'm headed. The rear fender and tank shell are formed but still have a lot of sanding, trimming and fitting. I decided to go with a skirted rear fender (Indian style) and the tank is just a shell. I'm using the original tank with a door on the shell must like the GL1500 has. I had hand surgery yesterday so my work will be halted for a few weeks.
