Keep the bike long enough and it might be worth something...to your great grandkids.

Where are you getting those numbers? An 8,000 unit discrepancy is astonishing if there really were only 13,000 produced.
Honda probably has the figures as to how many, of any year, came out of the factory, but I doubt there's any way to figure how many remain on the road. And for collector's purposes you'd have to figure in condition.

Anyway, welcome to the forum.

Probably quite a few. But, they are sitting in a barn or in back yards in sad shape. Ones on the road, not as many.

What part of the VIN are you referring to as the sequential production number, how far from the GL1.......

These motorcycles were quite expensive from new so my theory is that many are therefore present - it is harder to discard something you had to make an effort to get!
Here in Europe, a GW1000 was about $ 1600 more expensive than a Kawasaki Z900 from new. Today, a 1975 MINT GW1000 costs about $ 10,000 and a MINT Z900 can fetch $ 16,000 or more.
This must be because there are significantly more GW1000 that have survived than there are Z900 ??

There is a write up in Wing World this month about the GL1000's . What happened to the original Preproduction 10 motorcycles. Really interesting and a good read.
