It looks like I am about to pull the trigger on this deal. It is an opportunity to get a very nice GoldWing for what I consider a small investment.
I negotiated with a local repair shop to have the following work done
2 new tires - Dunlop E is what I believe they are.
Fuel system cleaned out which includes both carbs and a new jet kit in each if needed.
Both timing belts replaced.
All fluids replaced including oil.
The service shop also said that they would initially do a full diagnostic on the bike before any extensive work is done, to make sure there are no major engine issues.
My total investment including price of bike, labor and parts will be $3000. This will get me a very nice looking 98 Goldwing with 39K miles and a lot of life left.
