Greg's 1976 GL1000 Project

Postby Greg_C » Thu Jan 01, 2015 7:30 pm

Hi fellow classic bike enthusiasts and Happy New Year!

I am going to start on my 1976 GL1000 bike project.

My last bike restoration project was a 1980 GL1100 which was documented on this site at the link


I picked this GL1000 bike up in 2013 as a spare parts bike but have decided I'm going to try to get it back together and on the road.

The 1976 project will initially focus on the engine rebuild . Then the carbs, and then the bike/frame, and finally reassembly... The engine is currently split, and needs to be put back together. I,ll document my progress on this forum / topic.

Here are a few pictures of the project.


Current Rides:
1976 GL1000 (WIP)
2004 Dodge Ram 2500 Cummings Diesel - Camper puller
2006 Toyota Corolla - My Daily driver
Past Rides:
HMCS Assiniboine (DDH 234)
1980 Porsche 911 SC Targa
1979 MGB Roadster
1980 GL1100 Interstate
