1978 Honda Goldwing GL1000 dealers handbook

Post by Tinoirla123 »



I purchased a 1978 GL1000 and the previous owner gave me a box with extra stuff. At the bottom of it I found a binder that says "dealer handbook" it's actually in pretty good shape with colored pictures and literature. Does anyone know how common these things are? I tried researching it online and couldn't find anything about it. Trying to figure out if I hit something special or not. Thanks for any help.

You see them for sale on EBay from time to time.

Not worth much altho people ask ungodly prices for them

You have to remember that on EBay, just because they ask a lot, doesn't mean it actually sells for a lot.

I am trying to help my friend out by rebuilding his carbs on his 1987 Honda Goldwing 1200. Is the instructions I seen posted for the R&R on the 1100 good enough to take me through the 1200s carbs? Thank you

Regarding those carbs I hope you have contacted Randaks for the parts. He probably has the best other than factory OEM. And you might talk to him about the book. He is really into restoring old Wings and probably can update you on the book and its value!
