History
Both it and it's custom matching Savage trailer were owned by an auto body instructor at a community college. He used the plastics as teaching techniques for top quality custom painting techniques. As a result, it became a prize winning custom.
I acquired it in 2004 and going front to back, top to bottom, went through every mechanical system and brought it up to top mechanical and dependability status.
The net result is that it is among the finest 1989 Goldwing examples to be had and creates awe and envy by most who see it first hand.
