Comstars wheels in 1975

Post by ntintruder » Sun Apr 22, 2018 8:28 pm



I bought a GL1000 from a guy whose father owned it. He can't find the title so I didn't pay very much for it, but he claims it is a 1975 bike. I can't read the serial number on the frame. because it has a Vetter fairing on it and a lot of wiring in the way. I am going to get rid of that but this bike has Comstar wheels. Did Honda sell GL1000s in 1975 with Comstar wheels and spoked wheels both? I always thought that the Comstar wheels came later. When I get the fairing off it will be the third one that I have sitting around. I can't even give them away around here. They were such a hot setup back in the day you would think that there should be some demand for vintage fairings.

Comstars were introduced in 1978. Modifications are required to fit them on a 1975 to 1977 wing. Check the Vin as my guess is that the bike is not a 1975.

The farings are worth nada, anywhere.

I just give them away to the 1st person who's willing to pick it up.
