Goldwing cafe/brat

well... finally got one!!!! This build is completely going to be designed by Sean. His bike got stolen early this spring, so we are going to build him something wild, as you can imagine it will have a ton of powder work and custom flair to it... here is the bike, rode it home, sucker ripps! i was rocking wheelies down the road with it!!!



and 5 hours later

Awesome!

That motor would be a good transplant into my Scion...probably more torque and HP then the Toyota 1.5L.

early goldwings make cool cafes! I'd do a gl1000 though, this looks like an 1100 or 1200.

I like how this thread is shaping up.....

did they steal a goldwing from him? or another bike?

I love the old school hondas. They are huge. Plus, a lot of them had shaft drive.

How do the springs hold up with the powder? What color brand is the black? Is it a smooth matte finish?

Problem with GLs is that they're so big, you'd have to call this one a cafe-teria!

But, I like how you think! Can't wait for updates!

Springs hold up fine, powder is extrmemely flexible and works great on springs. In a perfect world I would have built a jig to keep them stretched while coating for better coverage. But since this is a personal project being done after hours here and there when customer work is done, I didn't take the time to build anything.

The black for this project is a matte/eggshell black that we like. Went through a bunch to find one that doesn't have any of that chalky look that flat blacks can have, this one is really nice.

how about some updates!

rotors stripped, blasted, makes, prepped and ready for powder


some of the parts where in really rough shape after we stripped adn blasted them so we coated them first with a primer to get them smooooooth as glass, then coated


base coat on the cooling rack


while that was cooling for the 2nd coat, got the front wheel stripped to plan out the powder work for it... next up blasting... wait till you see these suckers when they are done!!!!


after top coat, flat red layed over a undsiclosed base coat, gives this SICK effect of flat anidized!




rotors are done! check it out, flat red stripe on the outter edge of the rotor, and flat black centers! SO TRICK! took some time to do but wait till you see it with the wheels!

here are some more updates!
before ya'll jump my bones, yes you can powder a radiator as long as it is done right and you keep your cure temps under what it takes to melt braze and solder... we coat them alot! and have great results, also it does not affect the ability to cool the bike, my fighter runs the exact same temps as it did before the powder on the radiator


looking like new in flat black


random parts


trees and such

alright! we are about 85% of completed with the powder... check out that making work!!!!




flat black



on the cases the letters will stay flat black and the rest will be all in the flat red, here is a shot of them with the base coat on them for the letters... is a pain cause now we have to do the red base coat and top coat, timing the powders flow out temp to keep the letters from having an uneven surface to the rest of the powder... takes some work but will be a good stand out feature



we are on track to have the bike 75-85% done by this weekend

alright! the frame is shot and done and re assembly can begin. i cleaned the hell out of it, then scuffed it, tacked it, and hit it wiht an adhesion promoter, then i used 3 coats of self etching primer, then the top coat of bed liner (non ruberized) after that was about cure i dusted it with a light coat of flat black, this will allow it all to cure together and dull down the shine, have to say it looks insane! just awesom!!!!!!

but here are some pics


you can see the color match wiht the powder is pretty good only diff is the textrue (that is why we wantd to shoot the frame in a bed liner then color match to have the texture in the frame)


motor and everything important wrapped up


original color before the flat black went over the base coat


motor unwrapped






odds and ends

also got the first round of red base coats shot on the tank and side covers... shooting PPG paint, still have a bit more red (all this on the tank is shades of red) to lay, then can shoot the black, then the flat clear, some airbursh and accent work... and the tank and covers will be done!

ok here are some cell pics... the paint work was done by our shop painter Joe... he also did Seans (my busn partners) camaro, does a wicked job so we had him work his magic on the platics as well... he is insane with paint!!!!

you will notice the fuel door is no longer 2 parts it is now one solid piece with a zeus connector for the door (like you use on the hood of a race car) looks much better and allowed the lines on the tank to be as clean as possible!
but here is the paint work!
also... bear in mind this matches the powder work to the T! going to be so sick... should have a roller by the end of the week if we can sneak in some time to knock out the wheels! going to do a bunch more work on her tonight
