Thanks Taffy. Someone was asking about what mufflers will work with the goldwing?

I used OEM Harley Davidson XL1200 Sportster Exhaust on the goldwing headers. Bolt right up with some exhaust clamps from Auto Z#[email protected] Cost $15.50 eBay!

The young man who is buying it doesn't care for the fairing, so I'm going to put him a National Windshield on it like this one on the Maroon bike:

Great job on the restoration, Teacher. It looks great, and it's the right color too.
