The new Goldwing FB6 gives the Goldwing a cruiser (but not Harley) look, while maintaining that smooth quiet engine. It will be interesting to see how it sells.
Those sites are not in the business of selling parts for vintage bikes. Pick up any chopper mag or classic bike mag and you will find businesses that do specialize in them....All makes and damn near every model. Between my dad and I we have several pre 1980 Jap bikes and have never had an issue with sourcing parts.
