I am converting an 86 Honda Goldwing and I plan to document progress here. I welcome questions and comments. This forum is an excellent way to learn, share ideas, and network.
I started this project near the end of 2011. I had previously converted a 66 MG. After a few years of using that car I decided I had to either put more money into it or use the parts for somhhting else. So I stripped the car, and many of the parts are being used for this project.
I found the Honda Goldwing at a motorcycle junk yard. It was old, but still running. I towed it home, stuck a battery in and rode it for a couple weeks in the late fall. It was in need of work, but the fact it was operational (as compared to some of the junked ones with missing parts), gave me a good head start.
