Daymn! I really like that! A LOT! Never thought of a Goldwing as a clubman bike but that is a very well done custom.

Big kudos to the builder

I eat, breathe, live, love and ride motorcycles.

I especially like the front end. Outside of the megaphone exhaust, it's flawless to me.

The Rune was the best looking GW ever built. Too bad it had such a short run.

There's another one that's not bad, is a fairly new model, and looks sporty but has bags.



I guess it's a Valkrie but with bags and fairing.

I am a big fan of the Valkyries from the late 90's. When I first saw the photos of the new ones I liked them too. The original glossies of the new ones though were full profile photos only showing the silhouette. In person, nope. That up front bulk looks like it was an afterthought and just slapped on with no regard for design or style. I've seen a few on the road, far more than the Slingshot, so somebody likes something about them. Engine perhaps. To me it's just plain ugly. The Aztec of the two wheeled world.
