I would have loved to have had one of the PC 800's. I still think there is a lot to be said about the concept of a baby Wing! I had a Vetter fairing on my 1977 Wing. IMHO Craig Vetter was the inspiration behind evolution of the factory tourer.

The Vetter 2 that I have on the GL650 silverwing, does a better job of air management than the OEM Honda fairing of 1983. The OEM looks nicer, but the Vetter is quieter And calmer. Mr Vetter did in fact know what he was doing.

Sorry to go completely off-topic, but ...

GLblinded, You have a 1983 GL650 SilverWing? Red or silver?

An '83 GL650I (red) was my 1st motorcycle. I loved that bike - a sport-tourer before that phrase was captioned.

Now back onto the topic ...
Hi, the one that’s running is silver. It has the engine, final drive, seat, and wheels from the 83 gl650 interstate I was on when the deer hit occurred. I was running 60 mph. It only had 9000 miles on it. My son has an 83 cx650 custom. With 9-10 thousand miles on it. Still don’t care for the computer generated concept bike.
