Bought one... and new here

So I just purchased a 1977 Honda Goldwing GL1000 in what I think great condition. Front windjammer w/radio, rear bags, highway pegs, crash bars, etc...

 

Love it so far, bought it not running however (not the first time I have done that and it usually works out). The guy was doing work on the turn signal switches and a lot of the wiring was disconnected so right now I am working to get it all hooked up correctly and working right. Just kinda confusing with all the windjammer splices and whatnot.

 

Ill be sure to post more as I run into issues with this bike and as I upgrade it for either me to ride or for my dad to ride.

 

Anyways, Hello to all on here, Ill be sure to be posting more in the future.

 

Oh and Ill post some pictures of it as well.

Thanks, Got it running for the first time just now. Had an issue with the clutch switch. Shorted it for now, but plan on replacing soon. Still running a little bit rough though.

Welcome from Indiana. I like these wings better if they are naked. Once you get to riding this you will want to move up to 1200 or 1500.

Thanks all, The bike is still garaged. Have to fix a few leaks and seals before we get it out on the road. Anything else I should check up on it before I get it going.

Welcome from NW Iowa. +1 for the naked wing look. I would LOVE to find a GL1200 standard. Pretty rare around these parts.

Welcome from Downs, Illinois. If you have trouble figuring it out, give me a shout. My son now owns my original 81 with a Vetter. He has the fairing off right now working on front brakes. I can go check wire colors if needed.
