After a little over 5 years & lots of time, sweat & a few bucks I am finally done with my 1983 Wing. I have had it painted a Pearl Orange with gold flake, had several pieces powdercoated in orange & black (wheels, chin spoiler, luggage rack, valve covers, timing belt covers, intake runners, carb covers), have installed HEL stainless brake lines, a Cycle Comm unit in the fairing (Thanks Nightwizard40), HID headlight, MOTAD stainless exhaust. I am very proud of my rather unique color as I can pretty much say I have the only Wi
ng that looks like this in the world. YeeHaw!

The bike looks great! So many times, jobs like this are done half way, and the bike ends up looking not quite right. :sadguy:

This is not the case here. This looks done, and done right. It looks well thought out.

GREAT JOB!!!:claps::claps::claps::claps::claps::claps::claps::claps::claps::claps::claps::claps::claps::claps:

Very nice work Andy. It is always nice to see your bike stand out in a crowd. And you have definitely made this lopeha.

Can't wait to see it in person.

Wow Andy that is exceptional work. Can you upload some closer pics? I would love to see those wheels and engine a bit closer.

John, I have a few things in the planning stages. Still have to get them approved by the CFO.
