The early Gold Wings actually had a kick starter. But it was strapped under one of the fake gas tank covers. You had to insert it into an engine case where it would presumably engage the flywheel. I had heard that they didn't work real well, but at least they had one. Don't know about the later ones. I know this as my old friend had a 1975 "wing. There is no motorcycle made that I am less interested in than Honda's newer versions of the Gold Wing. That monster just isn't a motorcycle....it's a motor home. No thank you Honda.
