Honda Gold Wing Street Tracker

When Osmar found this bike it was on it's way to the junkpile, but Gold Wings are resilient machines. The goal was to build a bike like nobody had ever seen before. To take a Gold Wing and transform it into a bike capable of not only turning heads, but turning corners at high speeds as well. A goal that was accomplished over the course of several months in a paint shop in Florida, and produced one of the best looking custom Gold Wings we have ever seen.

Custom Honda Gold Wing from Osmar Santanna

Coming from a background in painting race helmets, this isn't his first custom build, but the first ground-up project he has done. The bike had been sitting and was written off as a hunk of scrap, but Osmar saw the potential. Knowing that the engine is darn close to bulletproof, he just replaced the heads and with a little TLC it was running again and good to go. The front suspension was replaced with that of a GSX-R, and a set of KYB shocks thrown on the rear. The battery has been tucked up under the seat and the electronics have been reworked and hidden to open up the area behind the engine. Rear sets off of an MV Augusta were modified to fit, putting the rider in a more aggressive position. Upgraded Brembo brakes were put on a set of Gold Wing wheels and a set of Avon Cobras were thrown on to get the power to the ground. A custom gas tank was fabricated to house the trail computer and a front fender and rear seat pan/ fender were fabbed up to match. Lastly, he put his years of painting experience to use laying down the classic bomber motif.This bike is not only unique because of it's platform, this is a level of raw functionality and hand done craftsmanship that is hard to find in customs. Especially done with the style and taste that Osmar has accomplished here. This bike would be at home in the middle of the city or tearing up the open roads of rural America- I can't think of many places I wouldn't want to ride this beast.
