On Friday we welcomed our 1977 Honda Goldwing GL1000 into HQ. Bought by Gordon as a restoration project, we’re looking forward to seeing this Goldwing spreading its wings this summer.
This striking blue classic was originally designed to tackle the US cruising market of Harley Davidsons in the early 1970’s and would soon become a catalyst of change in the motorbike world. With the Honda Goldwing soaring into the cross-country cruising market, this desirable cruiser soon became a firm favourite of motorcycle enthusiasts everywhere.
Craig’s 1984 Suzuki GSX 400T has had its fuel tank redesigned by Clinton from Holdsworth Artisan Metal Craft. This has been done by reshaping the side panels to allow the rider’s knees to sit more comfortably around the sides. Although this is more of an aesthetic refurbishment, it’s still just as important.
The exciting Suzuki GSX 400T Cafe Racer project continues! We’ve stripped down the bike and are assessing which parts will be modified, which parts will be replaced and which parts will be surplus to requirements. We’ve had the engine running again and it looks to be in fairly good condition. Most of the work required on the bike will be cosmetic to fit it’s new, tougher Cafe Racer look. The next steps will see Paul, our motorcycle expert at Bridge Classic Cars Refurbishing parts that will be re-installed onto the motorcycle.
