Does anybody know if all the 1980 1100's we're made in the US or at what serial # they started making them in the US.

My 80 is early 80 (I can't tell whether 1 or 3/80) and is made in Japan.



According to the Goldwing history production started in the USA in May 1980.

Bump for current interest.

Thanks for the bump. I have this number and it does not seem to match anything in this list. Could this be a replacement motor due to warranty way back when?

GL1E-8025191 is the number I got

I'm also curious, I'm buying a gl1100 interstate with the vin sc02168a323139 but the owner is claiming its an '83. If the 6th digit is year, that put the frame as an '86 but of course that's not right. I thought all post 78s were required to have a 17 digit long VIN. Am I way off? http://i.imgur.com/9dRhCl.jpg

You forgot the 1HF that is common to all VIN's and that would give you the 17 digits. It is not embossed but is part of the VIN.
