I found a 1988 GL1500 with 52k miles. It has CB intercom, cruise floorboards, toe/heel shift, swing out passenger highway pegs, corner lights, champaignish in color, drivers backrest and reciever hitch. Photos below:







So, what do you all think? I am already getting paperwork in order. Guess I'll be selling the 1200 if I get this one. I won't sleep too well this weekend!

Once you get this one and take the junk off, the floorboards and H&T shifter, you'll have a great bike. Looks like it has the later model windshield bezel which is nice. You're lucky that woman didn't sit on the 'Wing or it would have been sold.:goofygrin:

You don't need any sleep anyway, just take a couple No-Doze and go for it!:cooldevil:

Everything exavid said except the floorboards and heel toe shifter. Give it a chance.

Hey guys,
I love those floorboards and toe/heel shifter! I have a set on my 1200 and they feel great! Exavid, for some reason, everyone, including that woman, was drooling over the bike she is standing by. It was UGLY! It looked like a crotch rocket with saddlebags. No body was looking at the Goldwing at all. There was a fella trading in a 1994 1500 with 66k, but the dealer wanted $6999 for it. Somebody here on the forum was looking at a 1500 up in NE Ohio that was listed on Craigslist and wanted (IIRC)$6500. I even went to an auction in Urbana, Ohio for a 1989 1500 with 60k. It went up to $6600, but it had a sidecar. Had I won that one, I woulda taken that sidecar off and sold it. One problem was that there would have been holes in the lower fairing. Man, this is going to be a long weekend. Wendell

Hey Tim,

know what would be cool? Ever though about figuring a way to light you "bat signal" on your bike with a black light? It would be an eye catcher! Wendell

That's a great idea, I think I have a couple hundred LED's around the batcave here...somewhere....Off the the engineering dept.

BTW what is the dealer asking for the one you want, or did I miss that ??

Tim,

They have $4999 on it. I may try to get it down about $500. I'll wait and see!

That is easy mate...... you struggle away for a couple of days trying to reduce the nice picture, until you get really hacked off, then you cry for help on here again, and send it to someone clever and they reduce it to fit for you, then you put it in easily..... just like I did for mine. I never change mine, for fear of mucking it up and ending up without one!!!:doh::cheeky1:

Thanks Silverfox,

I will attempt to reduce a photo and make a run at it.

Hey Tim,

the shop here is open on Monday. Luckily, my bank has a hotline to get all of the information in on the weekend. Of course, the test ride will be the deciding factor. The salesman gave me some kind of lame excuse about it being too cold out yesterday. It was made VERY CLEAR that there would be no sale if a test ride by me could be made. Salesmen aggravate me to all ends (the exception being a certain salesman here on the board-hint: 4x4):cooldevil:. I'll post as to how it goes. I haven't even mentioned to the wife that the usual maintnenace stuff (timing belts, tires, etc) will need done this spring! Wendell

I find that passengers only need information on a "need to know" basis!!!:cooldevil:

I agree Wendell, test ride or no deal!!!:whip:and just as he thinks he has a deal signed, hit him below the belt with the discount thing, plus the demands for service and extras!!!!!!:arguing:

A '94 with that mileage in nice condition could easily go for $7000 around here.
