Maybe just a little too big, but that's just me.

Not just you. ;)

I think smaller and think it would look better on the side covers rather than the faux tank.

It could work better if it was lowered on the tank, maybe do a two-toned paint job for the tank?

Stuck for awhile... Trying -8an aeroquip hose for the fuel hose, but can't make the tight bend between the fuel tank and the shutoff valve. It just kinks. Have to attempt to find a more flexible hose.

I wonder what the Engineers were thinking as they sat around the lunch table and one of them said...
"Hey!, I know out of all the fasteners on the 1984 Standard Goldwing, let's use ONLY 2 M7 x 1.0 Socket Head Cap Screws on the upper tree... Won't that be fun!"

Well Nobody carries 7mm socket head bolts...
Got around it though by drilling and tapping for M8 x 1.0... geesh...

I did get the fuel line sorted out as well... ordered 2 90 degree 1/2" brass elbows.
A few extra hose clamps though...

Looking really good, are you doing your own paint? In the garage?

2008 (I think) GL1800 Nice bike but as exciting as the family sedan!
76 GL1100 yes, 1100 with 1000 heads and cams, being customized
A fleet of parts bikes awaiting resuscitation or customization or abandonment :IDTS:

I painted a Valk that color about a year ago. Love the color but was a bit disappointed that you could only see the glow when in bright sun.
