Came aboard this forum (3/24). Still a noob and a rookie when it comes to GW's. Several weeks ago I ran across a 75 GL1000, but found out the motor was not original. Had a 77 engine in the frame so I walk away from that one. Now I'm checking out a 1977 GL1000. I've not seen the bike in person but the owner did email me a pic. Looks to be in good shape and and the first thing that caught my I was the bike still had the original pipes that are solid the owner says. Has a fairing, trunk, no side bags and some type king/queen seat. The red paint still looks to be in good condition. The owner says he is the 3rd owner and the bike has been garaged kept most of its life as far as he knows and the bike runs good and has never given him any trouble. I know if GW's have been serviced and took care of mileage is really nothing to worry about. These motors can go 100k plus with no trouble right? This bike as not been parked it's been rode, 78K on the clock, but thats only between 2100-2200K a year over the past 36 years if my math is right. Hope to be able to go see the bike here before long. Input and opinions please!! I guess what I'm asking is should I look for one with less miles on the clock.
