lots of great details.
Any chance you know the manufacturer and part number of the
Key switch yuo used?

The key switch is a barrel style key switch. If you do a google search you can find similar ones. I found mine at a local electronics store. I'm not sure who makes it. I had to run it to a relay to get it to work properly.
thanks for the reply.
I will look around

Is that the stock front wheel? If it is, what size tire on the front? Great looking work by the way. You should be proud! anim-cheers1

Some more pictures of the fiberglass work. It really did take over a hundred hours. I don't know if I'd do it again. Fiberglass is really nasty stuff to work with too...
Do you have any other pics of the fiberglass job. I am very interested in trying to replicate it. Full disclosure- I have never worked on fiberglass before. Also did you d them from nothing or did you modify existing sides.

When looking around for a new bike build project on you tube, i came across your walkaround and start up video and that is what made me buy a GL1000, this bike inspired me, so thank you.
