ASPENAKED checking in for the first time. - Guest - 12-06-2009

Well, here I am the the new guy. I fell in love with the 1200 about a year ago. Another site convinced me to 'Go Naked!' so I did. I bought a basket case 1984 GL1200 Aspencade for $500 (with my wife's blessing) and never looked back. Here's what I have so far:1) Ditched ALL THE FAIRINGS, BAGS, TRUNK, etc. 2)Modified the front fender, 3)Installed Fat Boy headlight with handbuilt nacelle, 4)Replaced handlebars with CB500's, 5)Replaced faux tank with handbuilt modified Harley tanks(narrowed 3" and stretched), 6)Recovered Corbin seat with custom sissy bar, 7)Widened Harley Fatbob rear fender to clear 170/15" tire, 8)Modified swingarm to clear new rear tire,8)LED taillight, 9)Honda Civic alternator mounted IN THE CENTER of the frame, 10)Rebuilt all the hydrualics, 11)Installed ElectraGlide mufflers, 12)Made sheetmetal side covers. I am working on a single 2 Barrel Rochester carb and manifold right now. Still working on an idea for my dash/gauges. I know I borrowed a lot from the HD crowd but by no means is my GL1200N (Naked) a Harley look-a-like. My project philosophy is Maximum benefit from Minimum dollars. I will have about $3500 in it when I finish. I Look forward to a long stay here if you'll have me. Take care.

Thanks for the heads up. I will get busy with my camera so you can let me know if I pass muster. So far the most tedious has been seperating the wiring. I am anxious to work on the manifold and carb set-up. Funny thing, I was a member of the NGW (Naked Gold Wings), but I got banned by the site server. The administrator thinks it was my Aspenaked monikor . I was glad to find you guys. I hope to be a good fit. Talk to you soon.
