Custom Honda Goldwing Cafe Headlight

The bike started as a plain-Jane Honda Goldwing 1100. A lot of custom work and parts were put in to it. Mark’s policy is “if it needed replacing, it was replaced.  Or if it needed cleaning, it was cleaned.” The standard GL1100 weighed in at 694 lbs. Mark’s comes in at 484 lbs, a full 210 lbs less than stock.
