Proude owner of my 1st goldwing

Post by starfleetengineer » Fri Jul 23, 2010 8:01 pm

I had a 1983 Honda V65 1100c Magna. It was a great bike. The only thing I didn't like was the ungodly speed! I traded it for a 1984 Gl1200I. I went into this deal knowing I would have to do some work on it, but I love to work on bikes. I am going to put the compresser back in it that some one took out. I have a noise in the back cover of the engine which sounds like the drive chain is wore out and hitting the cover. I need to get the service manual so I can see what I am looking at. I've waited 3 years to get one and now it's time to play!

How many times do I have to tell ya,,, The right tool for the right job!

You got rid of your Magna?????? :o Oh the pain!!!

I have both my '84 and my husband's old GL1100. It's nice for the long trips, but you should have kept the Magna for the short urban rides.

I did the same thing...

Traded my 83 V-65 for my wing, I had to give the guy $500 to boot but I'm glad I did. There's no looking back.

Enjoy your "new" wing....and project. I traded a perfectly great running 1200 LTD for a 1500 that was, well not a basket case, but needed a lot of TLC....I am so happy I did :D
