what year

Hi,
Im a new member and have added a gl1000 to my shed, I would like to establish the original color,year and model of my goldwing. It was registered as a build date of 01/1975.
The frame no is GL12011879.
Engine No. GLe12012137.
Identifying the date and color will help me in the rebuild of this bike.
Regards
Michael

The production date says it is a 75. The only colors that year were candy red and candy blue as far as I know.

With no God over the state, the state then becomes not the defender of liberty but the definer of liberty.

If I disagree with you it's simply because you're wrong.

Hello and welcome to the forum.
Is there any place where there may be a hint of the original color?

I can tell by the rear "upper" engine mount that it is a 1975 or 1976.

If it has a grease zerk on the rear of the drive shaft housing, it is a 1976.

No grease zerk, it is a 1975 year.
