Hi everyone. I'm looking at a '82 gl1100on Craigslist. Currently its not running per the current owner. He bought it for the trunk for his bike. The PO took rear tire off to remove tank because it supposedly was rusted and clogging carbs then he lost interest. He's asking $300 with clear title. What should I look at? I've rebuilt a kz650 and have a decent shop. I don't have any experience with wings.
Sorry for the long post. Thanks for the help.

:waving:Hello and Welcome . So this bike has been sitting , already needs the fuel tanks removed to clean -which means likely the carbs also need repairs.

You can probly save this bike but be prepared to spend some money. A good carb rebuild kit available here :Randakk's. Is near $200 . Then consider new timing belts , as you dont want to blow a belt on this interference fit engine . How are the tires ? Do the brakes feel like they work , maybe another project there .

I dont mean to scare you off this bike . You have or can see it . Is the body/paint ,chrome ok ? If your willing to do the work ,spend the money , then there is lots of info and folks willing to lend ideas and such here on the forum .

$300 may be an ok price if the plastics are good .

I think you will get more opinons here shortly , though if you post the question in the Tech Forum you will have a lot more exposure .



Again Welcome . I hope you find the forum useful and visit often . Your welcome here with or without a Goldwing .

Might be better to save your money and find one in much better shape...

Here's you one up your way has ready to ride....costs a bit more than $300.00, but its worth the extra money that you won't have to spend and still not know if that $300.00 one will run....Click on the following link....

Thanks for the welcome. I think I may hold off on this bike. I'll keep my eye out for a running bike. I have enough projects as it is. This forum in great and very helpful.

:18red::15red::12red::11red:


And when all you need is a good laugh to start your day try the:: Fun Forum After that it’s up to you which of the others you will like the best all I can do is suggest.

Again Welcome to the Forum...
