Well, it's not a naked gold wing, but the fairing is gone. Took me 4 long days, one was dissasembly and cleaning, another paint, another reassembly, and today i did some details, like making brackets for the turn signals, horns, and front reflectors. I also had to wire up a cuircut board with 4 diodes to get the turn signals to double as running lights.

It's an '83 Interstate with 62k.

Before:



After:





Anybody have an idea how i can hide that rats nest of under the headlight?

Looks great. Possibly a leather tool bag or some leather bag for a rain suit off ebay?

Nice Job, looks good. :clapper::clapper::clapper:
I'm with Oldtoys I think a leather tool pouch would hide the wires and fit in with the style of the bike.

What i did a while back on one to hide the wires I went ahead and used the fairing weight ears and the plastic box that the fairing weight covered that originally housed the wires. I trimmed the plastic box about halfwayand made a cover out of aluminum sheet metal that bolted onto the 2 studs that held the fairing weight. I sold the bike but ithe cover looked better than a rats nest. jb http://www.goldwingfacts.com/forums/gallery_view.php
