Post Lowering the GL1000

Being only 5' 2" tall I have a need to lower the GL1000 so my feet will touch the ground.

I have been riding since 1963 but have never had a Goldwing because of the height problem.

My plan is to enter the progress of the build day by day as I get it done.

The bike I am using is one of seven I have purchased over the summer.

I first have stripped most of the seven which helped to gain knowledge of the Goldwing construction.

The bike I am lowering is a 1975 which was near a fire and is in bad need of a complete clean-up.

I have added the photos so far to my "zimco" photo gallery, I guess I can only put 1 here per post
