This is possibly the nicest 1st generation GL1000 in existence. This machine spent the majority of its life in Montana. The original owner passed away decades ago and the bike sat nearly forgotten about in a garage for many years. Finally, around 2008, his daughter decided to do something with it. A local Seattle vintage bike nut caught wind of this ‘wing and bought it sight unseen.

He shipped to the Pac NW and had Walter at Seattle Cycle Service go though it completely to make it good to go. The new owner had a bit of an ocd complex and ended up replacing any imperfect part that he could see with nos Honda pieces. The result is, quite literally, a bike that presents like a new 1976 Gold Wing. He intended to keep it forever, however, I had an equally nice Kawasaki Z1-R/TC that he had to have. This ‘GL was traded towards the ‘kawi.

Includes one factory key and the toolkit.

  1. A friend of mine had the same bike brand new. The Gold Wing was actually originally designed by folks from the Honda racing team. He used to regularly burn the tires off it.

  2. Awesome! This early GL series holds up well even with all the technological advancements of today’s bikes. (Drool)

    Would love to add this to my rolling stock stable. Wow…
