I promised myself never to buy old GoldWing again. I had about 6 of them.(78, 83, 84x3, 86). Almost bought one recently, it was my favorite fuel injected 86. 😱

I had an ‘84 1200. First year for the 1200 and had a lot 84 only parts. That was frustrating. I still have my 78 Café wing. Love that bike. Can ever sell it. Besides, my son wants it. He’ll get it.

As for the one in the ad above, he’d have to pay me to take it off his hands. Looks like it’s been sitting there like that for a long time. More trouble than it’s worth. Hi Miles, gold wings are a dime a dozen. Not worth the trouble.

84 is considered to be a worst year.
First time I ever heard anybody say that. Never had a problem with mine not counting the stator. Did the poor boy conversion on it. Also for gl1000 users... Like myself ... The 84 clutch plate is a direct bolt on for the 1000. That allows hydraulic conversion. I have all the bits, never installed them.

This was my 82' I stripped down and made a daily cruiser. Traded it for the 85' vMax. Hold my beer while I kick myself in the A$$.
The other one is an 88' I refurbished.

My ‘78. Bought it fully Vetterized. It has been pretty much like this since 2013. Ran dual webers for a couple of seasons, added the CB900 fender, and have had the viper faring on and off a couple of times.

I probably get more comments and eyeballs on this thing than any motorcycle I’ve ever had.

Thank you gentlemen. My son made it very clear to me several years ago that if I were to sell my collection of motorcycles, he wanted this one. Unfortunately, that has begun to happen and this one will be his. I’m OK with that.
