I am a new member and new motorcycle rider. I just bought my first 'real' bike - an 81 GL500. The past few years I have owned a 63 vespa which is super fun, but I wanted an upgrade because I can't take the scoot more than 5 miles away from my house due to it's limitations on roads...
I just picked up a super clean '82 GL500 and the left side panel flew off of the bike while I was riding it on the highway. I see tons of right side panels for sale online, but the left side panel seems to be mysteriously rare. Does anyone have this part and willing to sell? The color I'm...
Just picked up an 82' GL500 Silverwing from a friend who is moving out of state. He bought it a year ago from a mechanic/driving test examiner. The bike has just shy of 50,000 miles on it. My first go with the starter yielded mixed results. The engine will "fire" but won't stay running...
Hello fellow enthusiasts,
I've decided to sell my 2 GL650's, both running.
One is close to a show bike, I've been told it's the cleanest example of a GL650 some people have seen since 1983, I have put a fair amount of miles on her, mostly interstate to the BRP, I live in Southeast Virginia...

Had a weird process of starting my Silverwing after sitting for the winter. When starting it, I pulled both plug wires off to make sure I could hear a spark (tick tick tick), then with both plug wires pushed back on the bike would not start despite choke, no choke etc... I then...
Hey everyone, figured I'd make a thread saying hello. Got my first motorcycle about a week ago. It is a 1982 GL500 Silverwing interstate. Needs some work before it is really ride ready but I don't think it looks too bad for being as old at is it. Got a Haynes manual for it and I have some basic...

Hi, my name is Jacob, I'm kinda new to riding and I just purchased a 1982 Gl500 from Craigslist. It ran fine for about 2 days. Then died. I pushed it back home, then started working on it.
The bike only starts in neutral with the clutch held in. The engine starts and runs fine, then dies when...
Greetings! Picked up a new 1982 Honda GL500 Silverwing Interstate on Saturday with 28,xxx miles on the clock!
So far I've put ~150 on the clock since Saturday and it runs pretty great! Yesterday I adjusted the valves which were incredibly way too tight.....plus some gorilla tightened the...
Hi everyone. So i just started my first project bike, a 1982 GL500. I've been tearing it down rather haphazardly, only sometimes referring to the shop manual (not smart) and ran into a problem with the front end.
While dismantling the front brakes (this model has dual disc brakes), the left...
my name is Jake, and I have a 1982 Honda GL500.
I bought it last year as my first bike and rode it a bit before completely restoring it this year. I did a ground up restoration over the course of nine months starting January 2015.
A bit more about myself-I'm 22 and currently...
