FREE -- 85 Goldwing Parts Bike -- SOLD!!!
« on: March 10, 2017, 07:33:30 PM »
Now that I own a 2016 Goldwing I no longer need this 85 model under my shed. It was running 5 years ago when I parked it where it is sitting. A lot of pieces off this bike went on the one I was riding. It was handy after a tree limb fell on it during the last Rally in the Valley and other mishaps. I do have title in hand to the first person who wants to come get it. Here are some pics I took today.

to bad you're on the opposite corner of the state.

I'm sure somebody on that end will snatch it up.

One of the local bike shop guys is thinking of making a bobber out of it. But I think he was just talking.

Were the parts that were taken off mostly cosmetic stuff? Or does it need major pieces to get it running again?

Most all was cosmetic. It needed carbs cleaned when I rode it to that spot. After 5 years I'm sure they need work. All the engine and driveline stuff is good. The fuel pump was removed but in the trunk.

I might be interested in this but need to figure out a way to get it in and out of my basement first!

I will let you know if I am able to figure something out and maybe come check it out this weekend!

Thanks.

Do keep in mind that a Goldwing is about 900 lbs.... give or take.... If you care to visit just PM me and i'll give you my number and addy. I'll be wrenching on the brand new 2016 Goldwing with only 100 miles.... (something about that makes me nervous)... Gota install a hitch on it for the Tellico RFP #11 weekend trip. So I should be home most all weekend.

I am looking at the pictures on my phone so I may have missed it but is the exhaust missing?

Yes it is missing... It rusted out between the header pipes and the mufflers. I'd have to look and see but may still have them off in a corner.

After being asked several times if it run..... I figured I'd give it a shot. They say you can't kill a Goldwing... This could be proof that they are right. After removing the plugs and some penetrating oil on the rings.  I took a set of jumper cables and a couple shots of starting fluid and this is what happened... Down deep inside IT LIVES!!!!!

Fantastic! The plan is to get there around 3 but will probably be closer to 4!

there should be a new topic started, starting with the trip down to the coast. Then continue with teardown and rebuild.

Also tons of pics are expected.
