I worked at Vetter in the design studio from Augest 76 untill January 78 and GL1-1000003 (blue green) was on loan from Honda at that time. We were building a Hondaline Sport fairing at that time. That bike was full of hand fabricated parts. I hope Honda didn't crush it when they took it back.

Was that at the Rantoul factory? I was stationed at Chanute from March - Sept, 76 for school in the Air Force. Used to drive my the Vetter plant all the time.

Sorry for the interruption. Now back to our regular programming.

Yes, the plant was on the east side of Rantoul. I grew up about 20 miles east of the plant.

Nice project ya have going there. I like the aluminum carb stays. Hey FargoFour, I was at Chanute at the same time! Oct-Dec 75. Small world huh?
