    1977 Honda GL1000 Resto Thread

    I picked up a non-running 1977 Honda Gold Wing GL1000. It's in decent shape rust wise. It has sat for 9 years without running so will need a good bit of work to get the motor to where I'm willing to even try starting it. Tires and brakes will all need redone before she's roadworthy. This is how I got it:



    I haven't done much. Yesterday I got the new battery in it and checked. Electric seems to be working though I didn't dare hit the starter button.



    A couple friends have dubbed it the UFO. PO said it had 38 auxiliary lights I haven't counted but I believe him.



    Radio works and gauges are in decent shape.



    The plan is to try to get the engine going to make sure everything else is worth it and I don't have a parts bike. Once that's there, I'll work on tires and brakes and decide what the heck I want to do with it. I do know that the fairing and bags will be going away and hopefully help recoup some of the purchase cost. Not sure how fast this will all happen, but I'll update when I get something done.

    Post another pic without your fingers and a little wider shot. Wire looks brown, is that correct?

    It is brown. I'll have to dig to see where it goes but that's the only picture I have. Or did you want me to post the original larger version of this pic? The guy put a lot of his own wiring in there. It didn't come with the bags and fairing stock which is why it's pretty junky.
