1978 GL1000 Cafe Racer and Single Carb Conversion
After looking at many Goldwing Cafe Racers, it was time to do a budget conversion for myself.

Quick Stats:
- GL1000 Flat Four
- Empi/Solex Pict34/3 VW Carburetor (Modified)
- Dyna-S Ignition Upgrade
- Amber Headlight
- Paint/Stripe Retro Scheme
- Lightweight Fiberglass Seat
- Custom Directional Lights
- Straight Handle Bar w/mirror ends
- GoesLikeHell!

This GL1000 Cafe Racer is fairly nimble and very quick!
Averaging 40-42mpg (last road trip included some "Hail Mary" bursts!)
