At first glance the bike might not seem heavily re-built or customized. That curvy touring style of a 94s' stock Gold Wing is a little misleading in this case as one would expect some dramatic changes in appearance. But, the work done on this project is huge.
The bike was sent to us by Blake Morley and here what he has to say about this project:
"This project started in 2008. At that time I was a designer in the power boat industry where I became proficient in mold design.
The redesign of this 1994 Gold Wing consists of 11 newly designed panels, each of which is a huge job in itself. I had to first make the ‘plug’ for each panel (the plug is the first part of a molded fiberglass piece), then the ‘mold’ (the mold is made from the plug and is the inside shape of the final piece), and finally the ‘part,’ which was sprayed on the mold with fiberglass chop. All of the other modifications that make up the bike are designed and manufactured by myself such as the new glove box, which meant relocating the ignition switch, the switches for the air suspension and light controls.
The bike took me about one year of fairly steady work to complete ,and has been my daily rider for the past 10 yrs. Finished in Fresco green pearl, dark green valve covers and Aspen green graphics, I have won many trophies in bike shows and draws a big crowd wherever the bike goes."
