I started shoping for a Goldwing early this spring & I found this forum. I found it very helpful with lots of information on what to look for in the older bikes. I have been riding dirt bikes since I was 12(& that has been a long time). Our youngest graduates from high school this spring so I figured it was timetoget a street bike & I have always admired the Goldwing. Any way, with the information I gathered here I felt comfortable bidding an a 83 Aspencade with 88,000 miles on E-Bay. I picked up the bike last Friday and have put on 150 miles so far. I'm loving the bike and the experiance. The bike is going to need a little tweeking but for the most part is in nice shape.

Just wanted to say thanks for all the information that is exchanged here. I'm sure I will be checking in regularly.

:waving::waving: Welcome to the World's Greatest Goldwing Site 83Wingrider! :waving::waving:

That's a nice looking 1100! Just goes to show how a bike that's almost a quarter century old can still be a fine riding machine. Your's looks great, a little maintenance to bring her back to excellent mechanical condition and you'll have a lot of trouble free miles passing under her. I hope you enjoy your wing as much as I do mine.


BTW have a mana on me.

That bike looks like it has every option you can get. I got my old 82 a year ago and these guys where a huge help in getting it up and running. You are going to love it here, and I have had Harleys but some of Harley owners have a stuckup attitude toward people who ride other kinds of bikes. Everyone is so helpful that even I have been able to get my bike fixed up, with my limited mechanical skills. big daddy

Thanks everyone. I'm hoping works slows down and the wind quits blowing so I can get out and put on some miles.

Welcome to the forum from Ont.,Canada
In my opinion you bought the last year of Wing that actually looks like a motorcycle.And a pretty good looking one at that.

that's the 1st 1100 that is the same colour as mine, only mine has gold eagles on the rear panniers and no panel detailing

it came from the states originally does anyone know if this was a standard honds colour ?

Hi all, new Goldwing owner here. What a great site, thanks Steve
.

Just took possession of a 2003 1800A Sunday. Red with 3320 miles on it.

My last bike was a 1979 Kawasaki 1300 Six, sold in 1981. I did own a 1976 Goldwing but it's handling tried to kill me
. At any rate it's nice to be back to riding !
