Found this place through a friend. Just thought I would say hi and give a littel info.

I've got a 79 GL1000 that used to belong to my Dad who bought it new in 79. She still runs pretty good. It needs some cleaning up here and there. But she still rides great. As soon as I get some time I'll post a few pics of it.

Welcome Rick S to the bets "Wing " site in the world ! Gota love those 1000's their legends !

Don't know how long it sat but you might want to change the "timing Belts" to be safe? Make sure the tires are weather cracked also?

Have fun with it Bro !

Go to (naked gold wings ) in Google, nice site , great pics of old Wings!

It only sat for three years. My dad had the belts changed around 65000 mi. and it's got 73000 on it now. I'll check them when I cahnge the timing belt covers.

Thanks for the warm welcomes.

Rick S:

Living in Virginia Beach, you'll probably find a lot of guys and gals here that would love to stop down that way for a cup of coffee with you.

But, seriously folks-this is a nice place...I've only seen one bit of "borderline negativity" in the year I've been prowling around here.
