The momentary push buttons I got off ebay make the handlebars nice and clean.
In the near future, I will do the same to the Wing.
Was it hard to convert it to the M-unit wiring?
Not very hard. Just do one system at a time.
I like to start with ignition and charging system first then move to other accessories

I thought to put the bike aside for another time, but after grabbing a bear I found myself tearing it down.
The color is a candy paint. Grabber Orange from Auto Air Colors http://www.autoaircolors.com/paints/4654.html Manufactured in Connecticut

rocks Cleaned the carbs like 100 times to get it run the way I wanted or it should. I did however damage the number 1 carb, so I put a different carb from different model. It fits perfectly the the others, but I am sure the internal passage are different.
I just couldn't find the correct carb 644.
Randakk's carb kit was installed and I appreciate his help too.
I took her for a ride yesterday, and it felt so comfortable. Not much power yet as the carbs still hang when I rev it. But I did fix that later, and of course today it a rainy day on CT, so tomorrow then it is.

rocks I had one little thing left. I had no clue what it was for. When I boxed the Wing, I had the outside components aside and the engine parts the other side. Made sure didn't mix them. But apparently I did.
I asked here for help, and members answers were so funny. From crack pipe to deer flute, this was oil feed for the internal main chain. Thank to John J https://www.goldwingfacts.com/forums/124210-john-j.html
With the bike ready to fire I took it apart and inserted the deer whistle there.
