My name is Randy, I am from Kent Washington.

Tonight I am getting a goldwing, My neighbor has had it in his garage for around 9 months now and wants his space back, so he is selling it to me.

From what he is telling me , its a GL-1500 but we will see tonigh. It runs and has new tires. I will be going thru the carburetors to remove all the gunk buildup from over the years and doing a tuneup and oil change ASAP.

I would believe it to be a 1200 but he say's its a 1500. As for year he says 85 but they didnt make one yet in 85.

I will post a link to photos later tonight upon recieving it. Its going to be a fun project like my MOSSBEATER is, Its a KZ550 Gpz which was given to me for a project as well.

Heres a link to the MOSSBEATER.

Randy.

Are we allowed to post photos here or just link to them from another site?

No worries, I post all my rubbish in my own web forum.

I will be asking many questions while working on the bike, But not until after a thorough search of the site.

It's going to be fun working on this big bike. Though repainting it from WHITE is going to be a chore in itself having all these many thousands of body pieces to work with.

Having a brother that paints cars comercially for local mercedes and Bmw lots (in tacoma) FREE PAINT shooting 4 me.

This is going to be my 3'rd bike now and I am stoked for the neighbor to get home.

Randy, did I understand you, you are getting a white 1985 wing for $200.00?

Want to immediately make a considerable profit?

GOOD BUY! Its a GL1200. The Fairing is worth more than that. Never mind the rats nest of problems youre gonna find underneath, but even if the engines junk, its still a decent buy.

Yeah, lots of good advice here, just watch out for Vic, hes got his Physics messed up, but hes a fairly good wrench!

PS If you dont want it, Ill give you $201.00 and fly out next week to pick it up.:action:

this thing is a seriour runner, It just has old gas in it. Nothing my handy Butt cant handle!

Some new gas, plugs, oil & filter. It will be good as new!

Has new tires he says too, He just spent a big chunk of cange on getting it a few months ago. All he wants is space for his Shadow (Honda Davidson) Motorcycle and all his Plumbing tools.

My $200 will get him his new battery he needs I am thinking. And a few tanks of gogo juice.



He Just Gave it to me for $150 !

Its a GL-1000 .

Pictures in a little bit ! Its in my yard !
