I'm glad I came upon this web page in December had to join up. It's been 30 years since I've been on a bike, had to get the house empty of offpring. The last one I had was a Honda and they are still great machines too work on. When I posted in the " How To's" section on cleaning a gas tank, I'm starting from scratch on the GL1100I that my uncle gave me. She is really in great shape and only has 27K on it. Your posts have really came in handy working on her. So far it's been cleaning and the starter was the first of the mechanical. It works like a charm now. Just have to get the fuel system cleaned out and I'm pretty sure she'll come to life after 19 years of sitting. After working all day in the computer industry it's relaxing to tinker with the bike. When she is finally done and road worthy then it will be the motorcycle safty course her in York, PA then on the road. The only draw back here is the Harley factory is three miles from the house but Hey how many 1983 Goldwings do you see anyway.

Again, thanks to all of you for the valuable information and the manuals.

Welcome Mannie
i too was away from the bikes for 30+ years, took the upgrade safety coarse in Ottawa , best money i ever spent
Don't forget to change the timing belts , after sitting for so long they can't be trusted , broken belt could take the motor out permanently

Oh yes the belts will be done. Working on the carbs right now then I move on to the next step. Belts and hoses and while I have it apart I'll flush the radiatior.
