Honda Goldwing Street Tracker

The crew at Argentina’s Herencia Custom Garage continues turning out some of the hottest bikes in the world. Based in Buenos Aires — the “Paris of the South” — builders Federico Lozada and German Karp specialize in a style we love:  the street tracker. The duo is never afraid to set their wrenches on an atypical platform, as evinced by this Honda GL1100 Goldwing street tracker.

The Honda GL1100 was built from 1979 to 1983, offering 81 horsepower and 65 lb-ft of torque from its 1085cc flat-four motor. There is just something so brutal about these GL motors once they are freed of any fairings or touring accoutrements, like the engine of a locomotive. The crew at HCG decided that they wanted to build “the biggest tracker ever.” Given the size of this beast, it’s no wonder that HCG named this, their 39th build, the “Tracker XL.”

• Why was this bike built?

The client was fascinated with our CBX1050 6 cylinder, and wanted to have the same fascination with his old GL1100, so we had to work really hard to fulfill his expectations.

• What was the design concept and what influenced the build?

We were influenced by the CBX design, but we had another concept in mind, to do the biggest tracker ever! It was insane to think in a fat GOLDWING as a TRACKER!!!

• What custom work was done to the bike?

We used the shell of a big CBX gas tank, and we had to hand-build the interior.We added :

  • Yamaha Fazzer front suspension, disc brake with custom cnc adapters.
  • Custom CNC rear motor support brackets.
  • Stainless steel hand made exhaust.
  • Also, we worked really hard in the frame:  this bike originally used the gas tank under the seat, so we had to do a big job to change that.

• Was there anything done during this build that you are particularly proud of?

I’m really proud of the general final look in this bike, because we kept the HCG essence on it, without loosing the nostalgia and feeling of the old model done by the factory.

    That’s a ’78 GL1000. The last year of GL1000 was ’79, which looks exactly the same except it had square blinkers instead of round ones. ’80 was the first year of the GL1100, which has a longer frame, different plastics, and reverse Comstars. But it’s still a slick bike.
