33 years ago this Goldwing was last licensed for the street. Hauled to my friend's shop by a VMax owner, who has delusions being able to return this to the street cheaply. 34K miles, so about 3,000 miles a year for the first 11 years of its life and it's been off the road since that. He's had his Vmax in at my friend's shop for carb cleaning and some other general maintenance. Unfortunately for him the cost if he has the shop restore the Goldwing to function would probably end up being about what the value of the bike is. He needed some cheap used Vmax parts and asked me about getting some used VMax parts from me but he balked at a two-digit number for pricing on what he wanted so I'm sure he's not going to want to spend four digits getting this thing restored to reliable, functional use. I didn't read the tire dates, I suspect they're probably about 35 years-old. You might want to air them-up with nitrogen before you visit the drag strip to practice your launches, trying for a good 60 ft., and seeing what your e.t. is. A bit of carb chain polish and I'm sure a 108 mph trap speed is probable. It's going to be expensive: going-through the brakes (the front master cylinder piston is frozen in its bore, and I suspect the high-tech [for the time] dual front disc brakes' calipers are probably frozen, too), the carbs, pulling and treating the gas tank, two new tubes and tires, a new battery, new brake pads (would you trust what may-be forty+ years-old brake pads?) and at a minimum master cylinder rebuild kits, having the carbs rebuilt, gas lines, maybe a fuel pump; replacing any control cables that need it, and a set of valve cover gaskets to install after you check things in the valvetrain, and whatever-else needs to be addressed as you go through it from one end to the other. I forgot, both sliders are not going to oxidize, as they both have generous coatings of fork oil to prevent that. Parts and labor, I think will run $1500 at a minimum, probably more. The first Goldwing had a plug-in foot pedal kicker that operates perpendicular to the wheelbase of the bike for kick-starting purposes, it was under a removable cover on the right side of the false gas tank and plugged into the left rear of the engine just behind the clutch. Guys who are familiar with old BMW twins will be familiar with the side pedal location for kick-starting. The full dresser kit is a Calafia Eliminator II fairing and bag system. Looks like a knockoff of a Vetter Windjammer.
