I amfixing up my wing (89 1500) I was going to buy some chrome bits from the States but I came across an add for the wood effect type cockpit layout. Is it any good , I dont have the luxury of a garage to store my bike it is under cover but outside would this effect the wood.:gunhead:

I'm undboubtedly stepping on some toes here, but what the hell I've never shrunk from placing my foot squarely in my yap, so here goes. I think the wood looks a wee bit over the top so to speak. I've seen a couple installations and to me they look a might like 1960s trailer paneling. Probably attract tornados. Please don't do it.

 No .. the wood is sealed...  but I understand the shiny  repels both Bunnies, and pancakes... LOL...  I think the thing is to just add what you want, and try to make it about like a real dressy car... Few cars have the wood grain.. and it does smack of the '60's   IMHO... SilverDave /forums/images/emoticons/emoticonsxtra/cooldj.gif

Personally I would save the money and buy a nice warm shed from your local store, that would be a treat for your baby and give you a bolt hole to escape the cares of the world.

Hey Brojees, I like the idea of those Shag rugs, but then maybe the American- Enlish translation means that would be lost on you guys:baffled::cooldevil::cooldevil:All I will say is, it doesn't involve polishing!!

Vivian, the wood dash will last longer than chrome if it is under a cover. Now there are crappy wood kits and good ones and I took the advice of the wingnut and bought mine from Sunrise Cycles in the states. Ask them to mark the package as "samples" with a low value and you will avoid customs charges. 3 years later my wood dash is looking better than the chrome trims I put on at the same time.

This is from the links page here, it may help;

"Sunrise Cycle Goldwing Accessories. These are the people that make the beautiful Daytona wood dash kits. They come highly recommended by anyone in America that I have contact with and I had their walnut dash kits fitted to the three GL1500's that I have owned. At the moment you can't place orders online but can telephone them on 00 1 904 441 6362, that includes the international access code (remember that they are five hours behind Ireland on the timeline). Ask for Mary, she is a very helpful lady. Their prices are much cheaper than ordering from the UK dealers and there is a wider choice of wood finishes, which can be seen on their web site."

Shag rugs were popular in the 60s, the prevented knee damage. It was weird everyone with one had a shag rake (a tool for dressing up the rug, cool it Pete). Ugly damn things.

Sorry, which bit are you refering to as "Ugly damn things", It can't be the carpet or the rake, since they do not warrant a capital letter since they aren't proper nouns. Are we to assume you are talking about some of the youngthings that frequented your best Wilton??:shock:

Thanks for all the replies I think I will go with the chrome . The shed is a great idea (I wish I had thought of it ....DOH) the neighbours would not appreciate a shed in front of their house's we have on street parking and only a side entrance that I can barely fit my CBR through Dont say MOVE HOUSE I can hear it already
Go back to your SHAG rugs just be careful if you are ever in this part of the planet Dont ask a female if she wants a shag you could end up with a very sore face if you are lucky

Thanks again guys
