Re: Motorcycle Transport in Canada

Hi Jens. A good friend of mine had a 1969 Triumph Bonneville delivered to Bragg Creek from Ontario not too long ago. They did a good job getting the bike to him. As soon as I can contact him I'll find out who he used and let you know more details. Don't forget we have a VJMC meeting again in 2 weeks.

Got a good deal on some GL1100 parts.

Last week I was looking through the on-line listings of a local buy and sell site for Goldwings and parts for sale. I answered an add for a new pair of Dunlop tires mounted and balanced on a set of 1981 Interstate wheels for $125. I happen to need new tires right now for my 1100 so I arranged to go ...

Re: GL1100 Oil pickup strainer cover.

I just dealt with the same issue recently too. I concluded the whole problem could have been avoided if Honda had simply put the removable lower section of the frame on the right side of the engine instead of the left side where they did.

Re: turn signal buzzer

Maz is right about the purpose of the warning buzzer. I suspect it is more to warn the rider his signal is on rather than warn pedestrians. When I rode my 1980 Interstate home from the sellers house the day I bought it the buzzer scared the hell out of me the first time I heard it go off! I thought ...

Wanted: GL1100 Accessory Headlight Chrome Bezel

Hello members. I'm looking for a square metal headlight trim ring or bezel (not a plastic one). They were an aftermarket accessory for 80-83 GL1100 factory fairings to fill the square recession around the headlight. Chrome plated plastic versions are currently available from some suppliers but I am ...

Hi Darmoad. I'm in the process of repairing my fairing that had damage as well as speaker holes that were cut into the inner panel. The two pieces are glued together and do not come apart so don't try to separate them! If you look all around the perimeter of the fairing you'll see what looks like li...

Re: 1981 GL1100 Left/Right Heads interchangeable?

Yes, the heads are interchangeable left or right. Same Honda part number for either head. Honda number 12200-463-010. What year Goldwing does the seller claim they are from?

Re: Anyone recognize this floating rear disc??

That's an EBC Pro-Lite brake rotor made by EBC Brakes. It is their part number MD1082 for an 1983 GL1100. It's a pretty expensive part at just over $200.

Re: Change seat gl1100-80

$40 for a seat, 4 carburetors, and a radiator? That's a good price for everything you're getting! You can still use that seat as is for right now, if you want, and think about changing it later if you decide you want a custom seat made out of it to your specifications. I've never heard of Desert Cus...

That looks like someone used an original seat and did just what I suggested in my earlier reply. What bike does the advertisement say it is from? It's the right idea but I think the foam reshaping and the custom cover could have been done a lot better than that one. If it's cheap enough then it migh...

Re: Change seat gl1100-80

The seat pan will be the limiting factor as to what will fit on a 1980 GL1100. If you started with an original 1980 or 81 seat and had an upholstery shop reshape the foam and make a custom cover in the style you like, it could be made much more like the GL1000 style seats. I think the only differenc...

Nice project bike! 1983 is the best of the GL1100 series Goldwings. I would suggest you continue cleaning and servicing it back up to excellent condition like others here have already said. Parts are pretty easy to get for it in the United States and 80-83 Goldwings are pretty easy to work on. Find ...

Re: Body Damage

They are located at 630 46th Ave NE Calgary. I don't think they do any bodywork or painting there but it wouldn't hurt to ask. I'm sure they have done insurance work in the past involving painting on bike parts so they could probably help you with a recommendation.

Hi Hap. If the parts you need are stock Honda parts then Ross over at Adventure Honda can get you anything you need. He is one of the best parts guys I've ever dealt with. I wouldn't shop anywhere else except maybe Turple Brothers in Red Deer.

Good job Greg. If it ever comes loose again it just means you needed to put a tiny bit more on than you did the first time. It can be redone if you ever need to. Glad I could help. Happy riding!
