Whoa, good find! Gonna be looking at this!
Love the sound of it through the Emgo reverse megs, like a mid '60's - 70's Ferarri!
some technical info here
I've seen some that look as basic as a pyramid.
I have an 89 sidecar rig that I'm trying to get back on the road. (Does that count as old? I used to have a 1980 if that helps!)
Anyone have a good source for used parts? I'm thinking something like beemerboneyard for BMWs.
I like that exhaust. Mine is rusted out and in pieces. Did you replace the whole thing or just the mufflers? I need the crossover-collector-piece definitely, maybe the headers, and probably the mufflers. Where'd you get that from?
Emgo reverse cones from Amazon, no crossover. I understand some of the Wing guys go with HD Sportster take offs. Some have crossovers, newer ones have catalytics.
seeing that you have bags you might want to skip those sportster mufflers and get some from a road king so you clear your bags
Oh no! Use Harley parts?!
Interesting idea. I hadn't thought at all about other makes or models. Thanks.
If anyone comes up with a good source for wing exhausts and such, I'd still be interested in that, too.
In the meantime, I guess I'll go look at Harley parts.
I bought a one-owner 1982 Aspencade that had been sitting since 1992. The years and rodents had made quite a mess of it.
After an intense three month mini restoration I now have my dream highway bike.
wOOw that's a BEAUTIFUL Wing - health to enjoy. Looks gorgeous......... stunning.
Enjoy and ride safe...!
Thank you. It was a pretty bad mess when I started.
Screw siliconed into hole is gas tank.
Carburetors were a mess.
Brakes were corroded and seized. All of them.
Mouse urine had destroyed the finish on the engine parts.
Mice had eaten the seat.
I redid everything. Bearings, seals, cables, cooling system, fuel system, brakes. It was a rewarding project though. I'd do it again without hesitation. It's such a nice running motorcycle.
Who wants one?
The advert doesn’t say that it runs but it sure looks good
I want one!
Having done both I will say that the gl500 engine can be pulled from frame in under an hour. The K75 will take a lot more time than that. Main difference is the swing arm/transmission which does not need to be removed on the gl500. This is for a clutch change. On the Honda the complete engine with radiator comes out as one part.
Still needs front forks serviced, but I got it out for a ride.
My buddy got a '75 GL given too him. Ok, well sold for $1.00 to make it legal. He still doesn't have a bike license, so I got to ride it home from the shop when he got it inspected. Nice running bike. Didn't feel too big either. I am not a huge fan of giant fairings, but was glad to have it on the mid-40s day.
After an intense week of work my totally original GL1200S or so it seems is back in running condition and running extremely well, went thru the brakes again and flushed the fluids in the brakes and clutch. I wish this bike fit me better because its a great bike and runs perfectly for such and old bike (36)
Try different handlebars?
I have an offer to go buy an 84 1200. For $200. Brakes and clutch do not work. Going to ask for pics tonight. Anything else I should look for?
Next to the battery is a plug where the three yellow wired come from the stator...they have a habit of melting and killing the stator. If the bike is running check the charging system output.
