Greg's 1976 GL1000 Project

Post by Greg_C »

Hi fellow classic bike enthusiasts and Happy New Year!

I am going to start on my 1976 GL1000 bike project.

My last bike restoration project was a 1980 GL1100 which was documented on this site at the link

viewtopic.php?f=4&t=15198&hilit=Greg%27 ... ect#p78358

I picked this GL1000 bike up in 2013 as a spare parts bike but have decided I'm going to try to get it back together and on the road.

The 1976 project will initially focus on the engine rebuild . Then the carbs, and then the bike/frame, and finally reassembly... The engine is currently split, and needs to be put back together. I,ll document my progress on this forum / topic.

Here are a few pictures of the project.
