Goldwing engines are interfearance engines. A broke belt will lead to bent valves. For the price ($30-ish for both if you buy Gates or NAPA) and 2-3 hours of time are well worth the effort.
Something else to watch is the electrical connector next to the battery. Three yellow wires in and three yellow out. She doesn't have 'nuf miles for that connector to scorch yet, but do keep it clean and watch it.
The '83 was the first year for integrated brakes. The brake petal operates the rear plus the right front. The right lever works the left front. It's also the first year for anti-dive forks.
Radio issues might be the result of mice. For some reason, they find audio wires particularly tasty!
She sure looks minty! Keep 'er as showroom as you can, IMHO.
Oh, and welcome to the forum!

Lots of things. You've been watching me.
