    1978 GL1000 Michigan

    Left over parts bike from my last 78 Resto. This will be a basic naked European look when done. A guy still needs a little 2 wheel fun.lol

    1986 Aspencade with California Sidecar. Michigan

    Came with more lights and airbrush murals than I care for, but little at a time I am getting it closer to original.

    carburetor top broken plastic

    I have seen others epoxy nickels over the holes. Apparently good fit. I assume the need to be sealed good though

    Easy up

    Nothing to it, if the sidecar wasn't there could do that it on the ground if needed. Just removed the hose and took off the 3 8mm bolts and did it at the bench

    Clutch issues

    Not a fan of the hydro clutch. So far, I would not claim the 1200 has anything on the 1100s. In fact the 1200s are a little to gadgety for me.

    Clutch issues

    86 1200 Aspy with Hyd clutch. If I held clutch in to long the bike would start to creep. I bled out the clutch and was good for a short time but it came back. This weekend I rebuilt the slave and bled it again. All was good again for a short time, but problem came back. I do not seem to loose...

    Easy up

    Rebuilt the slave on my 1200. Hard to get around the sidecar so I went under. Made simple work of it. Brothers hoist not mine. (Fixed pic orientation, DF)

    Running light bulbs

    Can anyone tell me the number for the bulbs of the 2 running light bulbs on either side of the headlight on my 86 1200 Aspy? I would like to have bulbs in hand when I take it apart to change a bad one. Any good LED options?

    Intercom cord.

    That's not it but thanks for the link. The one needed is a one piece from bike to helmet. Not sure the pin configuration.

    Any semi leaning sidecars out there?

    Thanks guys, good to back. Looked at a couple terraplanes but either to rough, missing the correct pylons or I was just to late. Pistol pete sold one with everything needed to a guy in ohio that I just missed that would have been perfect. This one belonged to an old friend. He bought it new...

    Any semi leaning sidecars out there?

    Update. I stripped the bike back to naked, went through all the mechanicals and enjoyed it solo for year last year. But without the sidecar, not enough. The leaner dream was getting more difficult the deeper I got into it. I alone am just not enough of a fabricator, others where afraid of...

    Valve cover polishing

    More important, it is catylised. Fuel and sun resistant.

    Valve cover polishing

    I prefer keeping up on the polishing over clear coating. But if clear is what your after Google 2k spray max. It is a 2 part clear in an aresol can. Just puncture the catylist bladder and good to go. Top quality clear in a simple spray can. Not mess no clean up. After trying it on some less...

    Any semi leaning sidecars out there?

    Thanks Joe. Alot of changes in the last 5 years. New wife, new child (No, I'm.not to old for that) different home and different position at the same old job. Also good to have my hands back on a wing.

    Any semi leaning sidecars out there?

    Not happy with the size of my American Eagle spirit sidecar with the wing. Although it has done well for previous owner for years, it is nowhere what my old terraplane was. (Never sell anything!!) I have been studying and considering converting it to a semi leaner. (Bike leans, sidecar doesn't)...

    Stereo upgrade recommendations

    I do not know if there is a cheap way of doing it right,or if Im thinking on the same page as you but... What I did when mine wasnt working correctly... I repaced all the panels with stock radio delete pieces,and found a used cycle-sound dash piece that houses an older twin knob 4 channel...

    What do you think of the F6B?

    +1 It will not last. I give it two years max. Its to expensive for a stripper and to stripped for a tourer. The first gen valkeries were a great bike but had the same problem and just didnt sell well,mixing markets dont sell.The voyager way over sold it.

    What do you think of the F6B?

    I hate it. I am super disapointed in HONDA with the lack of improvements on the GOLDWINGS as the competition continues to up the bar. The BMW 1200lt came standard with heated grips,heated seat,power windshield,power centerstand,accesary plugs for gerbings ect... Then they introduced the...
