Howdy Ya'll...
I bought a couple 81 Goldwings and making one great one!
Having fun......This is my first Goldwing....I don't find them hard to work on.
Didn't even take long to strip'er down.
Any other Vintage Goldwing Owners around Ottawa, Ontario, Canada?
I'm just south of Ottawa.
Had fun trying to find parts, but I ordered what I need and they are on their way!
Hoping to be up and running in 4 weeks or less.......just depends on what da'wife says! LOL
Cheers

Depends what I need.
Picked up (in stock!) side cover grommets today at Powersports Honda on Hunt Club; also have some Progressive fork springs ordered, should be in later this week. Got my pads, master cylinder, and rebuild kits for brake cylinders from Sirius. They're in the vendor listings.

Well, I guess I'm doing it right!
Just got spark plug wires, complete carb kits, air filter from Sirius today.
Ordered some gaskets from Powersports....should be in tomorrow.
Got oil filter, plugs, gas filter from Bensons.
Got timing belts from Napa.
Gotta stop by Malmburg to get a can of POR15.
Should keep me out of trouble for a couple weeks.......lol :D
Like to on the road in about 3/4 weeks max.
Cheers

My tank is good. Going to do the frame while everything is pretty much off the frame.
Thinking about doing the faring, side covers and luggage.
Change over to gloss black.
