If it's a stock wire (not something that someone added after the fact), it's a ground wire. Green wires on Honda bikes are almost universally ground wires.

The end is twisted a bit... but no solder... so I guess its from a butt squeeze connector which has pulled out .... Is there, within reach of the end of the green wire, a wire with a connector hanging on it ?

In the pic, it looks like there is one right beside it...?

From the picture, it looks like this bike might be a LTD or SEI rather than an aspencade. I do see what looks like a cruise control vacuum actuator.
and the three connectors are not on aspencades or at least not the two I have, one from Canada and the other from the US
I attached a picture from the LTD electrical Supplement and it shows the three connectors.

Not wanting to steer you down a wrong path but looking closely the second wire in the loom looks to be light green (guess) light green and green I think are in the horn circuit (possibly others two)

PM me your email and I can send you the electrical supplement, it might help you

I think this is why we are somewhat confused:

"In 1987, the SE-i was dropped, but some of the features were moved to the Aspencade model including the intercoms, cruise control, and the upgraded stereo. A simplified version of the trip computer was carried over as well. Fuel injection was not continued."

I think you should look for a Honda manual for that specific year, the wiring is similar to the SEI but looking at the SEI schematic I cant find those two wires that are separate from the wires going to the three connectors.

Or hope that one of the members has a bike similar.

You could try either of these sites.

I have a Haynes book on the computor of "84 to '87 goldwing with a wiring diagram, but I don't know how to get a copy of it to someone. I think I down loaded it from this site when we still could.

Clymer manual for 1987 Aspencade shows a green w/blue stripe and dark green associated with Temperature meter. Dark green is ground, so concentrating on green/blue....it goes to Thermo sensor. They both goes through a connector. Other colors on same connector is :Black/white , Green/orange , red/green , red/blue , brown/white , yellow/white and black/brown.
This is only from reading schematic in manual......other than that, I have no idea.
