It will be fun to watch. I doubt it sells on the first go around.

It is a gem but I decided some time ago I didn't want to be a museum curator. If you paid the asking and drove it at all, you could kiss 80% of your $$ investment goodbye.

Once out in the rain, 90% of that price would be gone.

What he has failed to mention is........

all of the seals are shot, the timing belt is crumbly, the carbs will leak like a sieve,
the shocks probably won't hold air anymore, and etc.... etc...

Goldwings are meant to be ridden not stored like a Hardley

Very nice,but what could you buy and actually ride for $14k? Like mentioned, belongs in a museum for looking at. Some bike museum might want it. Unless its been in a climate controlled atmosphere,alot of seals are probably going to leak. Very pretty though. I agree,once on the streets and out in the elements you can kiss that 80% bye. Would have been better if it had some low running miles on it. 14K for an investment and just look at it? I'd invest in GOLD 14K before a 1976 Goldwing. IMO.

I sold my 76 limited edition with 48 miles in 1998 for $7500.00 after spending $1000.00 on new tires and service. I think so too, bikes are built to ride not to be stored.
