Old Gold Wings are pretty neat, the original naked wings, before they got all gussied up and turned into dedicated touring machines. Randall Washington, better known as the owner of Randakk’s Cycle Shakk, just posted a video of his supercharged GL1000 during a brief acceleration run. Moves quite smartly for an old wing, but the best part is listening to the whine of the blower.
Randakk went through the process of putting together a custom kit for a GL1000 blower, but after it was done, he realized the price would be too much for the market. Of course, he still has a blown Gold Wing to ride around which is pretty neat. Oh, he’s working on a CBX blower at the moment, that should be fun. Yep, forced induction is a beautiful thing.
