GL1200 Chop – Rear Suspension

by

I had an idea of what I wanted to do with the rear suspension and after searching the internet I found exactly what I was looking for at Naked Goldwing Club by a member called HOTT.  He highly modified a GL1000 and installed Harley softail pull type shocks on the rear swingarm.  It was a clean look and exactly what I was looking for.  Thanks to HOTT for a good write-up on his build.  I modified his design to fit my needs and the frame of the GL1200.  You can check out HOTT’s build by clicking HERE.

When I”m ready to put everything back together, I’m going to build a removable bar that ties both front shock mounts together for additional stability that was lost with the removal of the stock center stand.
