Well, that should be a cake walk now are you using the frame I saw around it or making your own
Nope, will be de-caged, shorten & setup like a street rod (no chrome)
The '77 XJS Jag rear end gear ratio is 3.31-1 & the GoldWing is 2.91-1.
So using the 15" wire wheels , have figured out will need 195/60 or 215/55 tires which are 27.279" tall
Bike tire is 24.148" tall
This will bring the rear end down close to the stock GL1500.
16" or 17" rims could use a lower profile tires, but like the True Spokes Wire rims.

This is what I came up with using the stock GL1500 tire at 24" tall.



You can see that the lower ratio 3.31-1 at 2000-3000 RPM will be going slower, so need a taller tire to speed it up.

How much higher will that put your bike as compared to stock, ah, normal ride height. I don't even know what normal is but, if the rear is higher, will that give the bike a tendency to plow?

Found a Honda Del Sol damaged rear bumper here in Knoxville & got it for $10.00.
The parts I needed were good, so cut them out & mounted to tail light housing.
Need to support the bumper area the fill with form to shape,
Will body work the housing then a mold of each to mount on the trikes body.
Need to angle the sides in so I can release the molds.

On my trip out to Calif. stopped at Pull-A-Part in Memphis,TN & got the rear-end, pretty easy getting it out.
Saw the wire wheels on another Jag, but pasted on them, they are the large Chevy bolt patten 5 - 4.75".
Paid $125.00 plus my time to remove the Jag & it was about 14 miles out of my way, round trip.
Stopped at a few more junk yards in CA & AZ & picked up a few things.
The wire wheel were burning a hole in my head the whole time, so stop in Memphis again on the way back.
Got them for $40.00 all four, so went ahead & got them.
Think they will look good on the Trike with the Jag rear-end behind them.
Next on list is to get 2 tires mounted to rise the rear-end gearing to around a 2.93:1 at about 2000 RPM

Got a pair of front bars off eBay for a 88 GL1500.
They looked pretty but were bent all over.
A lot of hammering to get them mount.
This was just so I could mount a pair of Highway boards
Could use good lower fairing as these will need repairs.
The corning lights aren't so good ether.
PM me if anyone has a set L & R sides
