i just bought a red, 1979, GL1000 for $250.00 for a real nice guy here in florida. it was a california bike so it's rust-free and someone repainted the thing and it looks great. not running though but the guy said that it's the ignition switch and he has a good one that he gave me to install. once i do that and check the oil & water and go through the carbs, i should be able to get it running. the bike only has 19K on the odometer so it should run very well. it needs tires and the brakes are totally dried up. i hope that the calipers aren't rusted. if i can get this behemoth on the road, i'll sell my other bike and ride the wing for a while.
