I searched my own database and zippo....

have you read all of the posts in this thread?
Yup, went through all 7 pages.... Found a few bout a hundred miles away in Canada.... but will need to trailer the old girl. Taking a rig across the border ain't as easy as it once was..... probably not worth the hassle. Thanks !!

If you have a local GWRRA chapter you may want to contact them and ask who they trust with their wing.

What model? If GL1800, Honda Knoxville has a good one. If a GL1000, I might be able to help you do your own work. I'm in Clinton.

Lexington Motorsports has a great one for GL1800, but that's 2.5 hours away.

I work on my own and will not take mine to a dealer.

For the right price I'd do it for others.

Advice is free.

Contact me and come by.

I will be honest with you.

My charge is 2x parts + 10 per hour. And I'm a bit slower than the stealler but I'm fair.

I love working on old bikes.

But my time is limited.
Jeff, I'll bet you know Phillip and Gary Sanford.....!!

I've interacted with Wing Stuff four times, and it's never been a smooth experience. Not once! They seem to have good reviews, but I had to wonder, were those reviews family and friends? I doubt it, but my experience has been to avoid them now. They've batted zero with me.
JBJ Cycles was undoubtedly THE BEST for Goldings. Those guys just knew all the little tweaks and tricks. It was a little Cheers Pub type setting in the mornings. People just hanging around talking. THE BEST. Unfortunately, they are out of business! DAMN.
Highland Cycle might be worth looking into, assuming they are still around. Just looked them up. Excellent reviews, but appears they are no longer in business.
I've had a couple of minor things done at believe it or not, Moto United on Whittier Blvd, in Whittier Ca. I think it was brakes, warranty brake issue, tires and a few other things. How many times have you had a tire replaced and aired up to 25 lbs! Not these guys. 40 psi and even had that little spot on the tire matched up to the valve stem. Brakes done with no excess fluid around with everything sealed up. No returning for anything. Trying to get a quote from them "lately" has proven worthless. I think it has a lot to do with who's managing the place at the time. I had my work there probably back in late 2018. Can't vouch for them now, but I'll be taking another shot at them, over the phone this time.

Most all Honda places won't touch a 25 year old machine. Lack of parts availability can also be an issue. Your best bet is an independent shop. You can also expect there to be delays waiting for parts, both new and used.

I live in Decatur and can recommend
Johnson's repair shop
6251 State Rte 101,
Decatur, IN 46733

is a great place for older Goldwing repair. He really knows them and has been working on them for decades.
