Honda GL1000 Goldwing 1976 21078
This is a 1976 Honda Goldwing GL1000 in Candy Antares Red. It has covered just over 50,000 kilometres which is around 31,000 miles. Original exhaust included.
The bike runs and the tank is clean, it could use some rear indicators which are cheap enough. All in all this is a nice bike at a sensible price. It comes with a title and NOVA documentation ready to register in the UK. We can provide guidance to help with the registering process with the DVLA ( its simple!)
The Goldwing project began in 1970, soon after the completion and subsequent launch of the radical CB750 four, the design brief was simple it must have a bigger capacity than both the Z1 Kawasaki and BMW R90 and produce more power and carry a greater load than the 1200 Electroglide. The Honda research people were keen to explore the possibilities of ever increasing capacities taking the 750cc concept, first seen with the 1968 CB, onto greater things with more power and torque being produced to good effect. The prototype GL nicknamed the M1 or king of motorcycles was an elaborate design featuring a 1400cc six cylinder engine not unlike the later 1500cc Goldwing and Valkyrie of the mid 1980’s.
