New (almost) Owner, longtime lurker

Postby DavidT » Wed Aug 04, 2010 10:50 am



First, I have been a member a while, but I think this is my first post. That tells you how long I have been registered! Can't remember! Anyway, I am about to purchase my first wing, an 84 GL1100 Aspencade. It has been sitting up for about 5 years, and only has 40K on the clock. Just wanted to introduce myself and thank the owners of this site and members for all the great info I have gleaned so far. I already have the clutch working again on the bike, which was the original problem causing the owner to park it. Looking forward to many hours of resto work to get her back road-worthy.
Thanks again, and hello!

FYI 1984 was the first year for the 1200. You either have an 84 1200 or an 83 1100.

HEE HEE! can you say MISPRINT? Thanks, guess I didn't check it close enough before I submitted. It is an 84 GL1200.
Gotta keep me on my toes!

Welcome and congratulations!

Your profile says you have a GL1500SE...is that a different bike?

Yeah, got the 1500 sold out from under me when I got it running well. Gotta change my profile!
