Re: GL 1000 1977 colour

There is a good chance that the majority of auto paint suppliers, know little more than to put in a code, bit like buying a coffee, the person behind the counter knows little more than to push the right button and hand over your cup of piss. some auto paint folk have 8,000+ colour catalogue, you sho...

Re: Show Chrome vs Add On

Re: GL 1000 1977 colour

All you need is some twin gold pinstripe it is relatively cheap, you should be able to get a match. I would apply the pinstripe after the first coat of lacquer and then give us many Coats of lacquer as you want. Ask if anyone on the forum has any paints they have mixed and ask if they would supply a...

Re: GL 1000 1977 colour

Your wing has definitely been re sprayed. My first GoldWing in 1982, was a naked red GL1000, I bought a Vetter fairing, and Craven top box and panniers. I had the paint matched to a side cover. I could not find, and believe there is no colour codes on the GL1000. just spray it either candy blue gree...

Re: Wing threw a timing belt ... what now?

Odds of a recent timing belt breaking can be 50/50, odds it happening to a Honda or Gates belt is something I have never heard of. If there was a actual BANG, then something may have come adrift or fractured, which may or may not be better than throwing a timing belt, good luck.

Re: Cool Trailer -seeking info

Certainly looks inspired by CSC. Judging by the rivets and welding, piano type lid hinge, garage door type lid lock, light bar and lights, spray job, and the exposed angle iron A frame on the draw bar, it could be home made.

Re: Looking for 1800 advice, tough year!

Pleased you got what you hoped for. I am sure working on the 93 will be therapeutic. Good luck with whatever you decide to do 1800 wise. I read in earlier posts about the ride height of the 1800. I put Progressive springs on a 1500 Aspencade, and a Saddlemen Road sofa, I could not touch the floor wi...

Re: Front fork rebuild

tom, when you say "The front end does not absorb much shock at all," what do you mean. Are you lightweight and the forks are too stiff???. You do not want to be buying Progressive springs, unscrew the caps, and pull out Progressive springs, or have too much oil, or a heavy grade. My advice would be ...

tam, if you think the lock is anything special because of a tube type key, they are not, about the same price as a good one with a blade type key.

Re: Need a test ride

Wanting a test ride on a used GoldWing trike is a different kettle of fish, no such thing as a GoldWing trike. New conversions are to order, so already owned by someone. Dealer insurance on used machines covers theft, and use by employees for business only, does not cover people riding around on the...
