1500 CB

Postby hap2 » Wed Jan 21, 2015 11:00 pm



If the CB & cassette deck don't work, could that just a fuse?

Also, the ins co gave me $6600.00 for my 92 & the ok to purchase a new helmet which I did (HJC IS-17), dark smoked tinted face-shield for it (I still have to find a lack one that's close to opaque like my last aftermarket one), & jacket replacement the paramedics cut off.

Yes it could, there is a 5 amp fuse, it is at the bottom of the relays on the left, the fuse just above it to the right is a headlight fuse I think.

So have you found another 1500 yet?

If you have not my advice is not to rush into buying one, before I bought my last 1500 I looked at them for months.

If you ask yourself any questions relating to its price don't buy it.

Never in my 33 years on GoldWings have I bought one from a dealer.

Yes it would work, but if there was a reason for the fuse to blow a higher rated fuse would not blow as easily, but it would blow. Any fuse will do to get it working, but put a 5 amp in at first opportunity

If it was just a fuse then the owner would have replaced it. See it working.

Do not buy A wing with something not working, unless the seller is prepared to knock off the price of a replacement unit.


MOT- do you have advisories in the US, and from the number on the MOT cert, can you check the MOT history online
Timing belts- History-proof, any good owner would have a sticker in the top box or panniers with a change date, or recorded in manual
Check EVERYTHING
Check wheel bearings.
Make sure you check the LCD panel displays everything.
Make sure all the speakers work.
Test ride.

You have a decent amount of cash and should get a good Wing
Do not buy one when you have any questions about it,

Tyres are always a good sign to me, if you look at a wing that needs new tyres, it says a lot.

£4,600 you have is the going rate for a decent wing with everything working including the rear pocket hinges which many people break.
You could so easily spend $1,000 on things you discover, ok if the Wing is $1,000 cheaper

I sold this last year for = to $8,300 someone bought it as soon as he saw it. He was surprised and amazed at how much better than the photos it was.
During the last 18 months of ownership
80% of chrome replaced, plus loads of chrome added, Everything worked

ACC socket
Charging socket
Hand painted artwork
New Exedra tyres and Bridgeport valves, new belts, and new genuine silencers
New LCD panel
New wheel bearings
Drive shaft and final drive serviced
Reversing lights
All but headlights changed to LED
Fairing marker lights
Fogs
Cornering lights
New Hog Tunes speakers
New rotor covers and ROF
New brake pads
Forks serviced
Saddlemen Road sofa
Stainless tow hitch
Air, cruise, and sub filters replaced
All badges replaced
Chrome plated exhaust shields
Chrome side stand
Centre stand removed, and serviced.
Top box and pannier interior lights
Polished engine casings
I often put it on the ramp to clean underneath
Never rode in the rain unless I got caught in a shower
All bodywork pristine without even a scratch
Polished wheels

Money was no object, I was about to spend = to $20,000 to have it triked, but I bought a 1800 trike with a trailer. I already had a trailer, so as much as I wanted to keep it,the 1500 had to go, because I had no room.
I wanted = to $9,000 but for an extra = to $1,000 a 1800 could be grabbed, so I accepted £5,500, after I I removed the tow hitch and a few other things I sold for £500, so in effect I got £6,000 for it
It was 21 years old and done about 60,000 mile when these pics were taken











Be a shame to part with your cash, then a month later you fall in love with one for sale for the same price, (not that I have ever done this of course) no one can foresee this, but if you are completely happy with the Wing you buy, it is less likely to happen.

You seem to be a condition rather than bling chap judging by your avatar, I would go for condition and history. It is easy peasy, enjoyable and cheap to add bits and pieces such as aux sockets etc. Discover it needs new bearings, LCD panel, worn swing arm, dry rusty final drive etc, is another kettle of fish.

Thanks redial, it is haps choice and money, the wing without the radio working may be the one he really wants, would be disappointing if it was hiding a faulty CB, intercom, or even both
