I was just wondering since my neighbor needed a battery and I liked his goldwing so for a whopping $180 I picked this bike up. Its a 1978 GL1000. Linked to my pages I have had it for nearing a week now and tore out the carburetors and cleaned them up. Man these things were Packed full of debris. It a wonder how this bike started in the first place. Now I will tackle the paint job, Its not a cool looking bike by any means but it will be when I can get it done. Handlebars are going away as is the fairing. I like Sports bikes so this will definatley get a facelift. I am looking for a cafe fairing to fit it and lower Drag style bars. The seat will be a gonner too or cut down into something more appealing. But thats all in the future, Right now I am gleaming on the screaming deal I got. Serious - It only cost me one hundered and eighty bucks, and it runs great now.
