So, I currently own 3 bikes, my main bike is a 1996 Goldwing SE. It is very nice, but lacks any dirt road ability. Comfort on road is great, but the ride ends when the pavement does. I also have a 1984 GL1200 and another GL1500 Goldwing. I have had a KLR650 and a Rally Raid CB500X. I loved both bikes, but for reason I will not go into I sold them both. I now want to be able to ride off Hwy again, but now do not have the money to buy another bike, and can't trade the 1996 GL1500 SE in on something new. So, the 1984 Goldwing GL1200 Aspencade is going to become my new ADV bike. Here is the plan, I have stripped the bike down to a naked bike. The rear wheel/tire/final drive from the 89 GL1500 will be put on the 1200 The front forks/brakes/wheel/etc will go on the 1200. All non required electronics will be removed. Skid plate made for the engine 2 each GL1500 non-air shocks for the rear Headlight will be a Ebay or Amazon 7in LED as well as the turn signals Rear will be a tail/brake turn signal fender off Ebay meant for a dual sport 2 smaller lighter muffler tucked up high Due to the GL1500 having the speedo drive in the trans, I will use a GPS speedo. This will be a budget build, but still hope to have it come out to be something I am proud of. I DO NOT want it to look like a Rat bike, it will be painted and look good. Kind of like the first picture, but a 1200. Second 2 pictures are of the bike in its current state. As it sits right now, it runs and everything still works. I could ride it as is, if I make a bracket to hold the speed on and add some lights.
