I wonder how many '75 goldwings are still on the road. If you are riding one let me know.

I recently rescued a 75 from someone who had begun the " Bobber Process" ( forgive me brokewinger ) .

Its not going to be roadworthy for quite a while .:sadguy:

I aquired my 75 a couple of years ago. It had been sitting in the original owners Garage for 18 years.

I took it almost completely apart and put it back together. The paint and chrome were in good shape but all the fluids and anything rubber needed to be replaced.

I took my time and enjoyed the restoration process and enjoy riding the bike now.

Don't have one, but wish I did. Only thing I don't like about them is the tube type tires, but at least they have a centerstand. They are beautiful standard style bikes. And those real steel chrome fenders!!!
