My 76 Goldwing Bobber
« on: Oct 30, 2013, 11:56:45 »
Dont know why I haven't posted here yet. but I'm bored at work and have bikes on the brain.

In the words of Game of Thrones, Winter is coming which means I'll be starting phase 2 of my goldwing project. If you want to see the original build of this last winter, you can see the full project here: http://www.goldwingowners.com/forums/showthread.php?t=22329

I never posted the project on here but thought I'd start a build thread for this phase of the project. Everyones always laughed when i told them how long i've wanted to do a goldwing bobber. Sounds ridiculous, well it is. But growing up, my dad took our family on camping trips all over the states. It was always on a particular late 70's goldwing, with sidecar. And gave me a lot of great memories growing up traveling on this thing with my family.

So for a long time ive wanted to build a goldwing to my liking out of nostalgic purposes. I bought this back in september 2012 and rode it. But once it got cold enough I tore it apart and began doing the major stuff.

When I bought it. Rode it home and only gave $400 for it. He was asking $500. So I got a deal on a deal.

before:


current version:





The current motor is the 1000cc. I have a 1200 layin around that I will put in this winter. its a good 25hp jump. It will involve getting the complete wiring loom, and likely the carbs. But one thing I would like to try is using 2 double barrel vw carbs with velocity stacks stickin straight up.

I'll also spend time tearing it all down again, and really polishing up the paint, and fine tuning all the little details.

Very Cool! I bobbed a 81 CB750 the same way (except I used two shocks) I'm really digging your bike. It's got me thinking about a possible Goldwing in my future...

Nice bike man. How did you make or where did you get that seat at?

Found it at an old thrashers flea market. Tons of antique stuff, plenty of tractor seats to choose from.

That looks unexpectedly better than I thought it would as a bobber. Not my style, but I can certainly appreciate it. Nice work thus far, in for more

CXMAN here is your go-to for the carb setup if you don't have that lined up. Nice bike.
unplug the connectors from the harness and multimeter the shit out of them

Did CXMAN do a double barrel carb setup on a bike?
