For Sale: 1984 Goldwing GL1200 Standard

With regret, I am selling my goldwing to fund some new builds. I learned a lot during this build and have a newfound appreciation for the engineering genius that went into this bike. Putting it up here before listing it on craigslist/ebay. Asking $3200. Reasonable offers will be considered - I'm pretty much breaking even here. I want this bike to go to a good home and enjoyed by a rider that will ride it like it was supposed to be.

See all the went into it below - it's been completely restored except I left the original paint. ODO reads 74063 miles. I've riden her about 100 miles since the rebuild to test and make sure everything is good to go. Very comfortable ride. Strong motor that was kept clean. Starts right up cold, idles strong and sounds great. Does not smoke at all - very clean and garage kept. I let it run at least 10 minutes a day to keep fresh fuel flowing.

only issue - temp gauge is finicky, but radiator cycles as it should.

Also included is a box of extra bits and pieces. Extra heads, cams, original air shocks, hard to find chrome bits, and original seat.

***also has original honda tools that came with bike in the tool tray underneath false tank

Dialed in and ready to ride. 100% complete. Right now the rear is lowered about an inch and a comfortable seat is installed that is a bit shorter that original.

clean title in my name. CA registration current.

Shoot me a PM if interested!

All brake calipers, with new brake pistons
Both break master cylinders

It definitely scoots! great mid range torque. Maybe being the lightest GL1200 makes it the quickest?
