Well just joined this site from Quebec. So hello to everyone. Last week I sold my Sportster which I had for 8 yrs and did all my own mechanic's. I wanted the money to move and get another small house, well to add to what I already have. Thought that that was it for me as far as riding went. I'm 64. It didn't take a week for me to miss the wind. So I picked up a 1980 GL 1100 Interstate for $1,000. Don't know the 1st thing about them, other than they seem to be more complicated than a Harley. But I like wrenching so I'll learn. Took my Harley crest off my jacket, but no luck with the tattoo's yet. I don't care, it seems to be running fine and everything works. Got a few extra $$ and a bike again. :mrgreen:

They're really not that complicated once you get to know them. I'm pretty happy doing just about any work on my bike, and it's all been mostly "figure it out on your own" kind of stuff.

Welcome to the site! As Wingadmin says they are not that hard to work on. I've had a ball restoring my 83 Interstate. If you need help this is the place.

Thank you guy's. 1st thing is to figure out how to change oil and filter and what kind of oil it takes. Would appreciate some advice. Thanks again.
