:waving:Welcome and Hello . $800 is a good deal . An alternator should be less then 300 and you might even take the bad one to an auto/electric/motor shop and have it repaired much less . If possible I would want to hear it run ( jumper cables ? ) Having set for a couple years you may be in for a carburetor and fuel tank cleaning . If your able to do your own mechanical work ,with the help of the forum here to answere questions its a good deal . If you dont work on it be prepared to find a smaller mom n pop shop as most dealers wont work on a bike that old :sadguy:, sad as that is .

Welcome to the forum! Sounds like a good deal for $800. Ditto to what Onawing&Prayer said.

If you have some mechanical skills and aren't afraid to tear things apart fix things, then it's a great deal.
In general the Goldwings are just about bullet proof, and require less maintenance and repair than the average bike or car, but they do still require some. Having sat for a couple years suggests that it might need some extra work in the beginning to get it back in shape. It could be expensive if you have to pay someone to do it, but if you are doing it yourself, it could be very rewarding.


Be sure to post any questionsyou might have in the techincal forum.

What I have noticed is that some of the people here were :15red:'sin their previous lives and can answer any question you have. Theforums that I get the most from are::

:18red::15red::12red::11red:


And when all you need is a good laugh to start your day try the:: Fun Forum After that it’s up to you which of the others you will like the best all I can do is suggest.

Again Welcome to the Forum...
