I wanted to do a whole bare metal w/ clear coat job first. Then...I found a softball size spot on the front right of the tank filled with Bondo. Sooooo, No bare metal job. That's when my brain went crazy and I came up w/ the "Banded Gecko" Thanks for your opinion rescue575

O.K,. here is my 02 Gold Wing. The color is called Pearl Sunburst Orange, when it came out in 02 I thought you would have to be color blind to buy one. Well I bought it in 03 and I love the color. Of course my neighbor thought I worked for Cal Trans when she saw it because all their vehicles are orange!!
The back rest is by Utopia, you have to cut a hole in the seat to mount it, that was scary!
The chrome is Kuryakyn and Show chrome, lower color matched cowl came gray but it was painted to match the bike. Wheels are not chrome but I spent many hours to make them look like chrome. The air wings under the mirrors are Baker Built.

Later on the front tire starting CUPPING!!


Me and my Wing
