Are the Goldwings manufactured in Japan and imported into the United States? Or are the parts manufactured and then assemble in the USA? Or are the built in the USA ? Or is it based on the serial number of the bike as to where it was manufactured? I am looking at importing a bike from the US and there is a 6.1% duty on the bike if it is not manufactured in the USA.

Hey beecas :leprechaun: I could be wrong, but i think all present day Goldwings are built in the states :clapper:since sometime in the 80's

Marysville, OH is the home of the Goldwing. It's more than an assembly plant, they make the stuff, engines are cast and machined, frames built, etc. On the 1800s the alumimun is made in the US and the frames arefabricated in Canada and shipped back to Marysville. So if you have an 1800 it's a joint effort major parts from the USA, Canada, and lots of smaller parts from all over the world.

It won't make them happy but Harleys are a mixed bag too, not everything on them is US.

It cracked me up when I found out that my "new" 83 was built in the U.S.

My Harley buddies don't like it much when I remind them of that.:grinner:
