1977 Honda GL1000 Gold Wing

Moving Forward – Update on the 1977 Honda GL1000 Goldwing

It’s been a little while since the last update on the 1977 Honda Goldwing.

This is Gordon, our director’s, bike. Last we wrote, the carburettors had been sent off to be media blasted and now it’s time for the rear swing arm to be serviced and rebuilt. The progress on this classic Honda (mainly believe to be from golden age of Honda motorcycles) is steady and we are looking forward to having her back and being enjoyed.

Progress on our Gullwing

Gordon popped in to Chris Self Motorcycles today to discuss the progress of our 1977 Honda GL1000 Gold Wing. The carburettor bodies have been sent away for media blasting. All of the parts are now on order to fully recommission the bike. We look forward to getting it back to enjoy the end of the summer.

Honda Goldwing Has Landed

On Friday we welcomed our 1977 Honda Goldwing GL1000 into HQ. Bought by Gordon as a restoration project, we’re looking forward to seeing this Goldwing spreading its wings this summer.

This striking blue classic was originally designed to tackle the US cruising market of Harley Davidsons in the early 1970’s and would soon become a catalyst of change in the motorbike world. With the Honda Goldwing soaring into the cross-country cruising market, this desirable cruiser soon became a firm favourite of motorcycle enthusiasts everywhere.

Honda Goldwing Coming Soon

We’re welcoming this lovely Honda Goldwing GL1000 as part of our own collection, however, it will be sent to JAL Restorations for a freshen up. Stay tuned to follow this Goldwing’s restoration journey.
