Although the GL500s we have a great for single riding, my wife and I love to ride together - and it is a little cramped. We have been looking for a GoldWing, and finally found one last night. It is a '83 GL1100 Interstate. It needs some carb work, but it came complete with everything. Will probably start working on it this week.

There is an older GL1100 around here for sale. Certainly needs a little work, but hey, that is half the fun, right. Unfortunately I can't fund it right now. So I will live vicariously through you!

Thanks everyone! Unfortunately, it is just sitting right now - not enough money to fix it yet! The carbs were SUPPOSED to be rebuilt, but I know that it is leaking out the front left carb when it is running. It won't idle yet, so I am first going to do a compression test on the motor and then fix the leaking carb problem. I will then need to set the idle up higher so it will run, sync the carbs, set the idle back down to 950 and then re-sync the carbs again. That is the plan anyway!
