    I purchased a GL1100 with a Terraplane sidecar. I am going to make the Goldwing a standard version this winter. I love the looks of the Terraplane but I have not seen one with a headlight built in. It looks factory to me. Any info would be great!

    Welcome to the forum!

    I've never seen one that way either. It's been 30+ years since these were made; I think there have been some creative updates to them throughout the years.

    This is how mine currently sits; waiting to be refinished.

    Welcome to the Forum. It would be cool to see one molded into the unit. It would be a fun fiberglass project.

    I will get some better pictures soon. It is pretty neat though. It is recessed under the tinted plexi in the picture

    Still hard to see but the square headlight can be seen back by where the base of the windshield is.

    Nice! What is the source on the front lights?

    Thanx, Martin
