'76 Wing Just got it yesterday....
what y'all think?
Nice looking wing! I like the solo seat.
I regret selling my old '81 1100, would have been nice to strip down all the Vetter crap that was on it and make it a naked wing.
Very nice. Appears to be in great shape.
pretty good for sure.......having battery issues now, so i only rode it for a mile before it left me stranded......dang it..... other than that, when it starts, it start quick and strong......runs good, sounds good.......
I had an 83 wing for two months this summer. Great motor but I was not fond of the huge fairing. Traded it on a KLR650. I'm happy but that naked one looks like much more fun then mine ever was.
I like the removal of the "G" - appropriate.
Gl 1000 is the best goldwing ever made. Nice and they are starting to go up in price. 5 years ago a grand might get you one and now a good one is 3 to 4 grand . A great one can go for up to 5 grand to the right goldwing nut.
Since we're showing old wings heres mine. Cost me a case of beer since it was in horrible shape and the po just wanted it out of his driveway. The family pitched in and help in the clean up and resto. Managed to get collector plates from my insurance carrier, $22/month for full coverage on this 1981.
I visited my 91 year old uncle recently. He had this Suzuki and a 1948 Whizzer in the garage,
pretty much untouched for decades. This Suzuki 90 was last tagged in 1976.
I liked this page from the owner's manual:
My dad has the same, he fully restored the bike some years back but now it sits. Perhaps I'll need to persuade him to let me get it out next year and let it breath.
What a find ! Anything you will be bringing home with you ?
Got out the 69 DT1 after 4 months sitting and she fired up after 3 kicks. God I love this old Yamaha. Been thinking of trying to get it road legal again, but I cant find my bill of sale.
Wow 48 whizzzer is wother 3 to 5 grand now
You did remind him that you are his favorite nephew, yes?
Here's a first year original paint Whizzer. Sorry for the poor pics.
Odd thing about the last pic:
I don't know much about Whizzers. I know at least some came on Schwinn bicycles.
I know Schwinn was the last owner of Excelsior motorcycles before pulling the plug in 1931.
The frame on this Whizzer has a Excelsior badge on the steering head.
The square oring in the caliper gets crap under it and it causes the piston to lock up. Just get the piston out, pry the seal out and clean the crap out. You can probably stilll use the seal over again. Just be careful not to scratch the bore or piston. Relube with brake fluid before reassembly.
I used a product called metal mend over window screen to patch a header collector and it worked great but that was not visable, Maybe you can wrap the hole with stainless sheeting then use some cloth wrap over it.
Great scoop, always wanted a 400f. Had a 1977 750f2 for 33 years. Wish I still had it.
Somenone would die to have that whizzer. That is in amazing shape . Any engine parts you need to make it run again are found easterly on the web. Also the bike might even be worth 500 to 3 grand depending . http://www.nostalgic.net/bicycle354 show a per ww 2 on and this one on ebay is 1951 . for a mere 2500 bucks LOL> http://www.ebay.com/itm/Vintage-Sch...283?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item519bca199b
My oh my, I need another LSD tab to make this one look OK
Any more info on this A65...It's the absolute dogs danglies...and nice to see a BSA instead of the multitude of (admitedly nice) triumph twins.
