Titled, complete, last registered in December of 2014, non-running 1976 GL1000. This is my second Honda, and the second oldest bike that I have owned. I suspect major trouble with cylinder number three, as the engine is locked up. Clymer and Haynes inbound as of yesterday. Anybody interested in some old, complete, undamaged Vetter accessories?

Welcome.

Wow! you've got the stock mufflers on that thing. Those are worth whatever you paid for the bike.

Good news! The engine is NOT locked up. I removed the sparkplugs and timing belt covers, then filled the cylinders with ATF and waited a couple of days. Yesterday I got the engine to roll over and sprayed my shop down with ATF!
