so this is now sitting in my garage...

and this.




Both were granted to me for free, and are decidedly project bikes. here's what i know.

they're both 1978 GL1000s.

the first one has run, but only with ether (for a short moment) and the oil pressure came up.

the second one the engine is seized, according to the previous owner.


I've stripped the second of all but tank engine and a rolling frame. Those spare parts are being hidden away. lol.

The first one doesn't roll very easily, i think the brakes are sticking or maybe there's a clutch issue. its a hell of a chore to push that bike though.

it has no headlight. I can't find parts to mount a need bulb in that can. its hugely frustrating. you might have a solution for me :) please share.

there's no battery.

the tires might be dry rot, not sure.

other than that, i SHOULD have all the parts to make it go.



first on my list is a carb rebuild, using randakks. i want to hear the bike idle before i REALLY get going.


oh, and there will be pictures. LOTS of pictures. the gf and i are probably going to close on a house in a week or two, so i don't know WHEN i'll be working on this bike in earnest, but i figured i might as well break the ice and join a community, since apparently i own a pair of 78 gl1000s. :p

Welcome to the forum maglinvinn

You have a project but sounds doable on 1 anyhow.
Open the brake bleeders to see if the calipers will release pressure, if so the return ports in the master cylinder is plugged. If not calipers will need prying on the pads to release enough to get it off the rotor and rebuild the master cylinders and calipers.

I have some 1100 headlights, they may fit but try to get it running first. Looks like it is going to be a lot of work and expense.
