hi all - I am a big fan of the early 80's honda's and am looking to get into either an
84-87 interstate or naked wing and was wondering what to look for as far as problems that were common to those models

I have a reasonable mechanical knowledge and know to look for the basics but it's the tricky stuff that separates the lemons from the gems!

I strongly suspect the 87's were a big step up from the 84's (last year on the naked wing was 1984 right?) but is there anything that was a well know issue I should be aware of when shopping?

Thanks guys - what a great forum

ride safe all

Welcome to the forum. There were a few issues to look at on the 1200 series. Look around the forum and be sure to check-out the Tips/FAQ section. I'm hung-up on the looks of the 1200 also... :gunhead:

Welcome to the Family!

If you want all the low-down on the 1200s you'll want to check out the 1200 Forum as well:

GL1200 Forum

My advice? At this stage of the game, if you don't have one don't get one. Don't get me wrong. They were/are great bikes. Loved mine. Look great. Ride great. Power to spare.

BUT ...
  • * Parts are getting difficult, and pricier, to find.
  • * Because of their age they require more maintenance attention, as all us old-timers do.
  • * Dealers mostly refuse to work on them.
  • * Nagging 'issues' that age don't help none (stator, pulse generators, regulators, etc)

My advice would be to buy the newest one your wallet can afford. Now, if you listen to my advice as well as my kids do, you'll have a 1200 in the garage by the weekend.


Whatever you decide, enjoy the search and come back often.
