Hi Saltspringer, thanks for all that info, a paint job of that caliber is beyond me doing it at home. I will just take that info to my guy and see if it makes sense to him so that he can get just the right colour (Antares Red) :) if you should need any help with parts let me know if I can be of help. I am more into making them run right and look good with what I have. LOL .
Email if you would like.

Hi bud, running a 1984 1200i and living in Malahat. May see you around.
Bike shop south of Ladysmith, loads of Goldwing stuff.

Great to know, many thanks.

I have been putting on a fair number of miles, and getting the bike settled in after a long period of storage. I think the previous owner hadn't run it for many, many months so it's having to bed in again.

Perhaps see you on the road...

All the best

Andy
