Going to have to change the name of this thread. It may still be a Goose but it sure ain't ugly anymore. Great looking bike and nice pictures!

Thanks!
Here is a pic that I was playing with in a photo app - I like how it came out.

Any idea how to mount a bottom mount headlight?

I like this one



Nice and tight to the forks. It is a bottom mount. I have seen sheet metal brackets for them. Do you drill and tap the bottom triple tree? Does the bracket attach to the top or bottom of the lower triple clamp?

Easiest would be to fabricate a bracket and bolt it to the lower triple clamp.
Best way would be to fabricate a bracket and weld it to the front of the neck at the exact height you want.
Or you could drill and tap a hole in front of the neck and make sure the bolt doesn't extend too far into the tube.  Use red Loctite!

Got to love 77 degree temps in November.

Went out for a fun solo ride to visit Cleveland MOTO and take some more pics in the Metropark.

Well the Bell Bullitt in blue didn't match well. Plus it it is pricey at $399



I found a used white one in my size (XXL) on Craig's in TX with some light scratches. $120 shipped!!

Works for me as I plan to paint to match my bike, I have some ideas about putting the bird logo from my tank on it as well.



Need to order a tinted bubble shield.
