Sorry Ed but I don't think that arm will work, looks great but isn't going to work.
The pivot point intended at the back is wrong and will scrub the wheel across instead of turning it on a pivot, unless you add a couple of linkage rods. It's probably something you wouldn't have considered as you primarily design cars.
What you need here is something unique, like an arm sitting right over the top of the wheel, operated by a linkage hidden under the fairing. That would be very unique and would look perfect on a Goldwing.
