I thought I would post a picture of this. This is the guy that i redid the radiator on, and a bunch of other stuff restoring. That bell luggage carrier is an eyesore. It will

eventually be repainted black. Only made this bike in 1984, and from what I understand, not that many. Having said that, at the Honda dealer yesterday they had a brand new wing in the "gold" color. It hurts me to look at it knowing full well

the addiction will advance. But I don't intend on selling the old wing at this point.

Quite attractive. Treat her right, and she'll treat you to many miles of joy! (But don't make her jellous talking about younger ladies!)

what was kind of interesting at the dealership in a way, was

one of the salemen. While I was waiting for the grandson to complete his deal i told another salesman about this wing. Next breath out of him was do you want to sell it? I think some people like the basic motorcycle look. I do know this in my limited experience. At least this bike throws heat, you can feel it on you legs and feet. It also skoots down the freeway just fine. In a ride yesterday with the grandson, i was taching about 3200rpm's at 75, he was turning over 7000rpm's to stay with me. I just don't think i would ever be happy with one of those crotch rockets even when i was 30 years younger. Maybe that comes from having one of the first honda 305cc dreams in the state of arizona in 1962.

Thanks for posting the picture. I bumped into someone who said he had a 1200 Goldwing but it didn't have the fairings or bags that might be for sale. I am guessing he is talking about YOUR bike. GREAT LOOKING PICTURE!!! I am going to have to give them a call . . . . .

Without the trunk she'll really shine! Jluvs2dive had an '84 Standard that was a gem, no bags or trunk and no rack if I remember right. I also had an '80 Standard with no rack or bags. These are great bikes to ride and surprisingly fast and quick handling compared to the faired versions. I sure wish I hadn't sold my '80 or could have bought John's '84, that really was a sweet bike. In my younger years I always thought a proper bike should only have black paint and chrome, somewhere deep inside my psyche I still like black and chrome bikes best. Admittedly that's not the fastest color but it sure looks good on a naked 'Wing.
