Swissitalian 1200 custom bike

#1

Post by DonGold »

Hello. I bought a Goldwing 1200 and I do not like heavy bikes but i really love that boxer. That's why I'll remove anything that is not really necessary to drive. I will start the project with 370 kg/815 pounds and look what happens. Suggestions are welcome.

I'm no expert but from watching other build threads here..if you remove the fairing you will have "holes" in the front of the tank sides to fill.
Plus you will need to add a fork mounted headlight.
And change the timing belts.
