Hi there people i am looking for some info on goldwings and i hope you people can help me.

My bro in law has left me his 76/77 gl1000 trike to get sorted while he is working abroad, trouble is the motor is in a bad way and i cant find any one willing to do a rebuild but i have found a complete and running 83 gl1100 with light crash damage .

So is it possible to fit this motor in the earlier bike or even later motors like the 1200 any advice would be apreciated.

i have been trawling round breakers but goldwings rarely seem to turn up in them.

thanks mick:stumped:

Welcome to the forum mick,r. The gl1100 engine will fit, someone asked about this last week or so. It's a bit of a tight squeeze, the pulse genny bow at the back apparently leaves only a few mm of space between it and the swingarm. I don't think the 1200 engine will fit as the alternator housing is a lot deeper than the 1100.

thanks for the info i have now bought the 1100. the swing arm gap will make no differance as it has been removed on the 1000 when it was converted to a trike.

i will post again when i swap motors and let you know how i get on with it.

thanks again mick
