For your consideration a low mileage, beautiful custom 1979 Wing! Just finished and ready to ride….
Took a very low mileage bike (12,400 miles) that had sat a long time and clean it up and make a custom, fun to ride machine. I believe I have done that with this old girl. This machine runs and sounds great while it turns heads every where I ride her….
The following was done during the restoration:
Removed carbs, sent to Pistol Pete in TN for clean, sync and rebuild. Removed gas tank, cleaned and lined tank. New fuel pump, filter, lines and petcock. Timing belts are new, all the filters are new, tires are new and the pipes add just enough aggressive sound with out being obnoxious. Valves all adjusted, new plug wires, points and condensor added. Fluids all new…
Fresh paint, new badges and I’m really happy with the color. Side covers, tank shell and front fender all painted. Front fender is original simply bobbed and painted. Lots of polish on the engine and wheels and many parts powder coated. Frame was never painted as it was in really nice shape with the low mileage.
Brakes have all been rebuilt with new pads, seals, rebuild kits, powder coated and new lines. (Please note since the photos I have removed the aftermarket front brake master cylinder. I have since cleaned, painted and rebuilt the original master cylinder and I’m much happier with it).
Front forks powder coated with new seals and oil. Rear shocks are new and a welcomed upgrade.
Seat is new with an integrated LED tail/stop and turn signal light tucked under the seat. Front turn signals are new and attached to the headlight.
Delkevic exhaust was added and sounds incredible. I was concerned about header pipes turning blue so I had all the pipes ceramic coated for better performance and heat distribution.
