I signed on in December and am just now getting around to checking out more of this site.My wifepurchased me a (new to me) 82 GL1100 StandardWing, with 42,000 miles on it,for Christmas. It has sat for a couple of years, probably about 5, since that was the last time it was registered for the road in 2004. It supposedly ran just two years ago and I know my mother-n-law (is that a dirty word?)has ridden on it before. It was only $300 so I took it home without even looking at it except the day I picked it up. After getting it home and on the lift, I started seeing the work ahead of me. It's actually in good shape but I will go through everything. I am not new to bikes and have owned a 76 GL1000 in the past. This is however, the first bike I have decided to do any real maintenance to. The list of things to do seems endless but I need something to do with my new retirement anyway. I have looked around the tech forum and can spend hours getting information aboutlots of things to check and replace. All of your help so far has been really appreciated and very helpful. Thanks for having me andI look forward to talking to all of you. T. Rider

:waving:Hello and Welcome Tired Rider . You have found the greatest place to get info to refurb your bike . From the picture it looks quite nice . It must be at least an Interstate model , judging from the weight on the front fork and fairing mount. The "Standard" model has no fairing or saddlebags .

How can one tell? I was told it was a standard. The p.o. said it had the stero and bags stolen off of it and I wasn't sure if it ever had those things judging by the looks of the bike...

Thanks everyone for the welcome. This is a great site and I find myself spending a lot of time here lately. I have picked up a lot of information browsing the threads and most of my questions have been answered without having to ask them. Nice to meet all of you and I'm sure I will spend a lot of time here in the future.
