I used a versah on this one.. I have never ever had a problem from them. But I always copper coat all my head gaskets. I was taught that way and will not change.


Gonna try to get $2200.00 for ELLA if I can find someone to buy it. I also want to sell all the spare bikes at same time.


Someone could get a sweet deal for $3000.00. This would be ELLA and enough to make another 1983 Interstate and possibly a 1981...

And still have spares....lol

I'm thinking I'd like to get around $3k for mine as well if I decide to sell it. Obviously I'd hate to after all the work..but could use the cash..$3k is probably a bit on the high side though. No way I'd sell for less than $2k after all this work.

Copper24,

Nice job on this post, I just got my first Goldwing and joined this forum. Let me tell you, reading this post has made joining this forum a godsend. Articles like this help everyone to better understand the bikes the own. Real nice job and thank you for all the work you did to keep us informed.

All back together... Waiting on DMV paperwork hassle.. And other bikes and jeeps taking up shop area till next weekend.. then ELLA rolls back in for a front and rear brake service and complete flushing.. They work ok, but the anal side of me says they can work better....lol

I am probably gonna change out the fork seals as a pre-emptive maintenance issue.

For anyone who might be interested, I coincidentally came across the following regarding the soda blaster Hal was talking about previously. It makes it so plain how to construct one, that even I think I can do it! There is also a link at the bottom of the page to a great video showing one in action.

Sorry for the temporary threadjack, Hal!!
