Possible last owners

Postby mleej56 » Tue Apr 05, 2016 3:52 pm



I just bought my first Goldwing, a 1985 Limited Edition, couldn't get information on previous owner from the dealer. Thought I would try here. On the back of the wing it has the name Will on the left, Wilma on the right and Kokomo Indiana in the middle. Does anyone know them. Am looking to make contact to talk about the Goldwing and how well it was taken care of.

You might try carfax! You might also try to locate a GWRRA member and check his Gold Book for folks in Kokomo. It is a longshot!

While you are working with the GWRRA member you might also check out the GWRRA.

Did you get the title to the ' Wing? Should have the previous owners name & address on it. :D
Also, "Congrats!"

I did get the title but it was titled to the dealer for some reason, but I will continue my search, I did send a email to the chapter head of GWRRA in Kokomo, IN and waiting for a reply..

Thanks everyone for your help on this. I did connect with the original owners of the wing and had a great conversation. Learned a interesting history of the wing and am glad I bought and will be able to maintain the history and looks of it.

Power of the forum, indeed. The amount of information and assistance I have received on this forum (and others) have been invaluable. Lots of available knowledge available, and friendly folks to dispense it.
