1979 GL1000 Goldwing fully restored w/ complete Vetter touring package

Post by fadingfastsd » Sun Aug 26, 2018 11:45 am



I'm selling my beautiful, fully restored, 1979 Honda GL1000 Goldwing. This amazing bike is a serious daily rider and touring bike, ready to ride anywhere, anytime, while also being qualified for display or collection duty. Always wanting to take a long trip on an old Goldwing, I bought this bike from the builder for a recent 1500 mile trip through Colorado, Wyoming, and Montana. The bike performed perfectly, as expected. It is now cleaned and polished, and ready for a new home. The bike has a clean Colorado title, registration, and insurance in my name, and is located in Fort Collins, CO 80525. I can guarantee you will not be disappointed with this bike, especially with the full Vetter touring package locking luggage, and Vetter Windjammer fairing (all color matched with new paint and pinstriping of course).

This Goldwing was restored in Loveland, CO from 2005-2007 or so, with about 5000 miles on the complete rebuild. I purchased the bike from the builder. Highlights of the motor-out rebuild:
Frame powder coated semi-gloss black
Engine re-painted and baked for durability
Valve covers resurfaced and polished
Timing belt covers resurfaced and polished
All body parts painted and pinstriped
Heads planed
Valves replaced
Valve seats replaced and honed
New piston rings
New rod bearings
New main bearings
New water pump
New timing belts
Radiator professionally cleaned
New radiator hoses
New thermostat
Carburetors rebuilt
New oil pressure switch, neutral switch, and water temp sensors
New clutch
New full exhaust system with turn-down mufflers
New Dynatek electronic ignition and high performance ignition coils
Misc. seals, o-rings, and covers replaced
New tires
Progressive rear shocks and front springs, fork seals, and oil
All brake components, fluids replaced (reused original rotors)
New stator
New regulator
New battery
New cables
A few modifications have been made.

There is an electric radiator cooling fan indicator light, and override switch. The light is on when the fan is running. The fan is still controlled by the original temperature switch. The override switch allows you turn on the fan at lower temperatures when desired.

I have installed a modern combined MOSFET voltage regulator rectifier in the place of the original separate rectifier unit. The original separate regulator unit is installed in it's original location (under left side false tank cover), but is disconnected. The original voltage regulator was allowing slight overcharging at the battery, so I upgraded to a modern combined unit for peace of mind in battery charging for my trip. The original rectifier is included with the bike.

2 complete sets of keys are included (ignition, side luggage boxes, top luggage and fairing). Original owners manual is included in false tank storage box, along with original Honda tool kit. A CD-ROM is included with complete pictures of the restoration. Paperwork and owners manuals are included for the Vetter components, Dynatek ignition, and more. Some various spare parts will be included as well.

This bike is unbelievable, and ready to be ridden anywhere, anytime, or put on display!

Feel free to call me anytime with questions, or to request any additional pictures or video. I am happy to quickly provide any further information you need. My cell phone number is 619-985-2527, and my name is Evan.
