Goldwing Bling

We can all agree that a Goldwing is a wonderful thing to behold, so what things have you done or added to make them your own?

 

For Black Beauty, I've worked in the "tone it down" direction.  I like a bit of chrome but not a lot.  I've added the ring of fire to the front end, some glow lights under the rear, and turn down exhaust tips.  That's about all the shiny stuff.  The windshield has been replaced with a Madstad (great shield by the way).   Since the lower front cowl chrome was dinged and peeling, I used some spray bed liner and turned it black, along with the lower exhaust shields.  I'm seriously considering painting the chrome side covers black, and maybe powder coating the engine head covers black as well.  Added a set of dark Airwings and a black stubby antenna to replace the tall OEM whip.  So what ya got?

Dave, I agree, sometime less is better, on my 1800 I've added only a little chrome accents, just enough to make it mine. Who am I to judge another persons taste, I've seen some Gold Wings that look like a mirror coming down the road it had so much chrome on it. 

 

I do like the rotor covers, I've been thinking about getting a set for my bike.

My 81 has just about everything that could have been bought for it and then some, and honestly, it doesn't look that bad, but I like the simple look as well.

Brian, I've never seen a 1200 disrobed, that's a very nice looking bike.  I wouldn't mind something like that for cruising around town.  Well, no more polishing the chrome engine covers, they're now matt black.  I actually think the look of the bike with them is pretty good.  It almost has the look of the F6B, aside from the silver frame and trunk, but those are staying, so I think we're good.

It gets even better... that picture is with some clothing on.  This is what it looks like when it is completely naked, but right now I have a windscreen, Vetter bags and trunk on it so I have more lock-able storage for my trip to Nova Scotia the end of next week.  Usually I have just the windscreen and a pair of soft bags on it, but some things need to be locked up while you are on the road.

Brian, that 1200 looks really nice, my very first Gold Wing was a 1978 GL1000, I had all the Vetter fairing on it. I bought it in 1979.
