New guy, too tall for most bikes

Hi everyone, brand new here.

I'm 6'4" and 205lbs, lanky frame, 32 inseam. I don't yet own a bike but really want to get something soon. I don't want a dual sport bike nor anything too modern. I'm a sucker for old school/traditional bikes, something I can learn on, work on and ultimately customize/chop/bob etc. I love the old Goldwings and from what I've researched they have a much longer wheelbase than most bikes, hence my interest, but I'm hearing mixed things about tall guys fitting on them.

Any recommendations for a "beginner" bike for a tall dude would be appreciated. Thanks!
