A few Bike I built, modded, rebuilt

Here is a few of my bikes i like naked customs.

Yellow and Black BumbleBee is Brother In laws Bike I built and Painted, it has been completely rebuilt Everything and is basically a New 75' Goldwing Old Bike.

My Warthog is the Red/wine and Black bike is a 86' GL1200 Goldwing Nakedized, and it Lost almost 200-Lbs taking off the Fairing /windshield, trunk saddlebags and all the metal tubing brackets and supports.

It handles Great, stops great, Halls ass, has a very Low C of G, a excellent canyon carver, 44mpg, and 100h.p. 500-lbs Now, it was 700-lbs

The Beige/Tan bike is a 83' GL1100 Goldwing, it's ride is extremely comfortable, it to has been Nakedized, and is around the 500-lbs ready to ride weight with about 90 h.p.
It now has a Memphis slim clear shield with quick disconnect, no tools removable in less then 30 seconds. Its Fast and Light, and brakes and Handles Great.

I have changed them to single cruiser style seats short modifyied front and rear fenders, HD mufflers, so they do Not sound anything like a Goldwing, they are more like a Hot rod, Loapie idle and more of a HotRod roar

Hey Thanks Rick,

My Black Cherry bike has 59' Caddy tail lights, those are retro look but have 40 LED lights in each of them.

My Beige Bike here is a picture of it with the new quick disconnect shield, I am putting on it Caddy 89'-93' Coupe de'ville tail lights in the picture with the same 59' Caddy tail lights on the ground, to be mounted.

I out fitted the Coupe De'ville with LEDs they have, running lights, Brake Lights, and Blinkers, all in one light, they really light up the Rear of a Bike.

Once done the beige bike will be repainted, i have a really low mile engine/trans waiting in case something happens then engine in it.

That is a twin gas tank bike meaning the 6 gal. oem tank under the seat, i added the steel red and Black tank it the one that looks like a regular motorcycle gas tank, so Now my bike can carry 11 Gal. of gas at one time.

I still take breaks, But I dont have to go find a gas station when I am way out in the middle of No where BFE.

I thought about mounting the 59' Caddy tail lights inside a couple of tubes, to look like a double barrel shot gun maybe make up some gun sights, and get rid of the passenger seat and go single only seat.

Those are 500-lbs bikes with,

100 h.p @7000rpm and
81 Lb ft torque @ 5500 rpm

and at a weight of 500-Lbs that's about 5-Lbs per H.P.

and 44 MPG Average.

It does not do to bad for a Cruiser Rat Rod, with Radial Tires
