Goldwing help

Hi guys,

I saw this add for a '83 goldwing 1100 that had a "very small engine fire". This is the full description.

i have a nice 83 goldwing 1100 it has had a "very small" engine fire it only needs a little bit of wire replaced and maybe a hose or two but other than that it was running about 3 months ago and was driven back from georgia. i do not have a title in hand i was stranded in georgia with no ride home after my bike blew up so i bought this to get home on. this bike is dressed up as much as it can be its got a ton of crome with a tow hitch lots of lights a back rest for driver and alot more. ITS AN EASY FIX

Is this truly an easy fix or is it a possible money pit?

Thanks

If it was an easy fix the current "owner" would have already done it. So lets look at this sceptically:
It needs a lot of work.
Its been sitting for 3+ months.
It has been molested by previous owners.
It has no valid title.

Bottom line is that it is a parts bike as far as you should be concerned.

Ok, that is what I thought but I wanted to make sure. Thanks
