1988 GL1500 Phantom Grey For Sale

Postby wingbug » Wed Jun 10, 2015 9:56 pm



Selling my 1500 Goldwing. I bought the bike from the original owner 19 years ago, and it has taken me to a lot of wonderful places in that time. The bike has 137,292 miles on it, and I'd have no worries in getting on it and riding across the country tomorrow.

Over the past few years, I've done a lot of work on this bike. Converted the saddle bags to LED lights, along with most of the lights in the dashboard. Also added a lot of LEDs to the side vents, which you can see in some of the attached photos.

As for mechanicals, two years ago I had to rebuild the petcock (auto fuel valve) at which time I also replaced all air filters and the fuel filter. Last year I had the timing belts replaced and while the front end was down the mechanic also installed new All Balls head bearings and front fork seals. The battery was replaced last year, and the tires are in great shape. Front tire was replaced when we did the fork seals, and the rear tire was one year earlier.

CB is installed, and yes, it gets out better than the CBs in the 1800s as far as I can tell. Reverse, cruise, cassette (which I use to play my XM radio through). Other than that, I'm not sure anyone still has cassettes any more. I've still got a few somewhere, and if I can find them, I'll throw those in with the bike for free! Ring of Fire on the front, vented windshield (not a tall one), highway boards and lots of extra chrome to keep clean. Let that serve as a heads up.

The seat has a tear on the lower right side, and the rotor covers have a "custom" cut from where the bike used to have a chrome rail around the front fender that I chose not to re-install after the front end work. I'll post photos of those as well. Other than that, this bike is still beautiful, and gets tons of comments on how it looks too good to be 25 years old.

Asking $4200. Once you see it, I think you'll understand.

The Goldwing is in my garage in Bossier City, Louisiana. You can call me at 318-7four6-4258.

If you would like to see the bike in some videos, you can go to youtube dot com slash wingbug

There you'll see a number of vids of the bike on rides around north Louisiana, the hill country of Texas and some local stuff.

Thanks for the information.

I am currently looking at one exactly the same locally, and your description sounds to me like a wonderful bike.

I'll check out your youtube link as well tonight.

Hope you get your price as well.

:)

Took the bike out in the driveway this morning, and took some more photos. Also remembered some stuff on the shelf that will be included. There's a driver's backrest, the chrome front fender rail, a "not yet installed" lower cowl cover, a Clymers Service Manual (with years of notes written in it) and a small box of parts that I've picked up over the years and never needed to install. Includes a side stand switch. Might take a couple of posts here to get the photos up.
