Yes it is mine. $1500 for ADVers. Needs some work but it is a real nice old school ride.

looks like someone got a little throttle happy and looped it, subframe is a little tweaked. Why not fix it so the rear fender doesnt point up before trying to sell it. Not a bad price though.

There was a guy sporting around the Sandia mtns a few weeks ago on one.
He had his daughter on the back and it looked to be primo and way cool.
He was getting right down the road on those skinny tires!

She wanted to ride on the passenger seat, but Dad didn't want her on there for the picture. Very selfish of him.

If you are an inmate, apologies in advance...

This guy is insane trying to get a penny more than $1000 for this bike.

Low compression, needs new valves, visible rust. You could buy 2 all original CB360's for the cost of this. ridiculous.

No title either....

There's no way he's got $2500 in parts invested unless that includes the purchase of the bike, and he paid $2000 for it

She don't want no stinking purple peddle bike. She wants a Wing.

For sale: 1980 Honda GL1100 Goldwing.
This is an old, classic motorcylce, worth seeing.
Less than 36,000 miles.

New Timing Belts, New Battery, fresh rebuilt carbs. Idles and runs smooth.
Come see it... $1500


I rode up to Greeley to look at this bike today.
The owner seemed very nervous and as I peered into the recesses of the engine he was pacing back and forth just behind me.
He told me the bike has been in the family for a few years and he just got it running. He says he pulled the carbs, replaced all the rotten rubber bits, and used a guitar string to clean the jets. He stated that he balanced the carbs on the kitchen table but not on the bike.
He also said that for some reason Wing owners pour oil into the cylinders when storing their bikes.
The bike started instantly with no apparent clattering or knocking sounds. Soon, huge clouds of smoke began to come out of both mufflers and from what looked like a leak in the exhaust manifold. It idled at 2200 rpm and when he tried to lower the idle it increased. When I held my ear to the engine and gradually fed it throttle I could hear stuttering.
It needs both tires, both fork seals are weeping, the bottom of the engine is oily, three turn signals are broken, and the carbs need immediate attention. Physically, the bike would probably clean up to a decent degree.
If you had the time and inclination you might be able to squeeze the owner down to a reasonable asking price but I had the impression that they really needed the money.

It's been a few years. But GWs pump all the fuel through the left side carbs. The front left carb is always in need of repair. If the bike is running badly you might look into rebuilding that carb.

Carbs probably need a proper cleaning. If the carbs aren't balanced the motor can sounds like it's coming apart at idle. I'd be more inclined to believe the smoke was from bad head gaskets, water in the oil or bubbles in the radiator would be a clue. If the bottom of the motor was oily it could be that the water pump seals are leaking. Fork seals really aren't a big deal. I'd be somewhat concerned about rust in the tank if it set for a long period of time. It probably needs the brake and master cylinders cleaned and/or rebuilt. Timing belts will need replaced. If you wanted a bike to tinker on for awhile and if you could buy it cheap you'd be ok. Once the issues were sorted it'd run forever until it was parked in the shed for too long again :)

Tell him to put it up for $1500. He will probably be run over with students at 800.
