You can get some good ideas from this
Pete

That is sweet, I see old lounge chairs sitting on people's nature strips all the time and wonder what I could do with a pissed stained wooly berber lounge chair from the 1970's, and now I know! I do need a new seat for my "Swamp Rat" project.......... ;D
I was feeling sorry for myself because I couldn't afford new bike boots, until I met a man with no legs.

So I said, "Hey mate, you haven't got any bike boots you don't need, do you?"

i remember seeing a pic in the 80s of a CB900 that had been turned into a proper trail bike ( gee, wonder where i got the idea for my 750 ) for the old blue light enduro and it had a lounge chair on the back and a foam tv on the tank, despite the enduro being run by the cops i think there was a certain culture there centered around herbal relaxation
It seems I've kicked the Honda habit again...anyone mind if I stick around ?

Not really sure where the headlight is. From this angle you can see an opening in the face, maybe the headlight shines through there? The ad says the eyes are “changeable “ and the bike will play music and do a light show. All for $4000!!

That looks like whoever built it didn't think about the carbs when he installed a late model engine into an old school frame. ;D
I was feeling sorry for myself because I couldn't afford new bike boots, until I met a man with no legs.

Yeah, I think what's happened is that he's bought an old school chop frame and tried to install a late model engine, and didn't realise that he needed more room for the carbs, so he's come up with a "solution", that didn't really work, so he's given up. Pull that engine out and throw in a CB750 or Z1 engine,, and it'll be good to go. ;D

And as you know, most Goldwings were made in the USA, so being (technically) an American made bike, you could ride around to your local Hells Angels chapter and ask if you could join their club? ;D

For a thousand it was very tempting.  I would, of course, have to match my helmet and clothing to the bike  ;D
