1975 Honda GL1000 Gold Wing
Undervalued and unbelievable to ride. Try one, it will surprise you
Head gaskets, water pump, coils, starter solenoid, front crank seal, cam seal, timing belts.
Although it needs lots of maintenance, I love this bike on the road. It's way more bike than the 900F on the highway. Unbelievably smooth and tons of power. I had no idea how smooth these Wings are. Bringing a low mileage Wing back that's almost 40 years old costs about 600 to 800, and you have to learn to do the work yourself or it's not economically feasible.
The 1975 would do a 12.75 quarter mile when they came out. And the only bike that was barely faster was the ZED, the KZ 900. So that tells you what kind of motor this is.
If the temperature is above 50, then I have a hard time not riding it.
Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes
