1985 Goldwing

I'm looking at a 1985 Goldwing. If I purchase this bike, will I have a hard time finding parts for it? Is this bike a 1200 cc ? It has 88,000 miles on it. any information you can give me, I sure would appreciate it.

There are still a lot of parts available for the 1200, but like the 1500 the sources are dwindling.
Searching Google and the recyclers on eBay are the best sources.

you are taking a step further back in time than your current bike. read the diy tutorials for a start.I love my 1200, it is one of the most enjoyable bikes I have ever owned but someday ill move up to the 1500-1800 just to reap the benefits of better handling, more reliable, more parts available better engineered motorcycle. just my opinion. if your getting it for a great price just buy it.
