I keep an eye on the custom builds on here, but if this one has a build thread I must have missed it. Lots o' rake and a single leaf spring rear suspension:

Leaf spring and no shock???!!!!!

Maybe later. It does look like it is not a running riding bike yet.

Never seen it before. Definitely a work in progress, but really nice work going on there.

About 8 years ago as a matter of fact .https://ngwclub.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=16&t=31341 Don't think this was ever completed as well . Kind of interesting ,Some good pics of others that have done it .

Yes, the leaf spring seems familiar but don't think it was on this bike. But this is very original.

that is certainly an interesting way to strap a bike down on a trailer.

You are correct and thanks! The other Goldwings here out-voted me on this bike.
This is likely going to be a long-term project. Should be fun!

I agree. If that was delivered by a transport company I would not be pleased with the way that was tied down.

that and how they ran the straps over it. especially the one over the front tire. I'd be surprised if it didn't bend the rim.
