    Richard Nangle. I just bought an 84 Goldwing with a Terraplane. I'm having it reupholstered and am hoping to find a latch for closing the top or at least a good photo of what the original looked like so that I can try to duplicate it. I didn't know if I was going to like it at first, but both my wife and I are enjoying our rides very much.

    Welcome to the forum from PA. I'm not completely certain but I think a simple Jeep hood bungee type latch is all that was used.

    Richard, Welcome from Ottawa. Not too far from Maine. I get to the coast every few years. Went to the Owl's Head Transpo Museum - great. Mike
