I was thinking about buying or actually trading for this gl1000. what does any one think, would these older bikes be a lot of trouble getting parts. i think it is well worth $600 is it,i talked to the seller and he is willing to take a pistol in trade, i paid about 600 for it. he said the rode it 2 years ago and it has been sitting since. how much does it weigh? owner says it has 30k miles on it.

May be worth it. Go over to Randakk's site and look at some of the 1000's and read on some of them what has been done and parts availability,





Good luck on it!

Unless he put it away properly, you'll be spending a fair amount of time getting it back up to speed with the carbs gummed up and various fluids needing a changeout. It took me about a month of work on my 1100 before I could reliably ride it.

Not sure on the 1000's, but my 1100 Interstate weighs around 750#.
