Call or text the number in the photo to see and hear it run.
Please only call between 8AM and 10PM.
I will not reply via any other method.

To (mis)quote the esteemed tome of all wisdom, National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation:
"It's a beaut, Clark! It's a beaut!"
"That is is, Edward. That it is, indeed."

If you know what a GL1100 is, then you are already well along the path to true enlightenment.
If you do not, please take a moment to understand that before Goldwings started wearing all the fancy plastic and chrome and generally looking more like a Pink Floyd laser show than a motorcycle, the GL1000, the GL1100, and the GL1200 could be purchased as a bare bike.
Collectively known as "naked wings", they have developed a cult following and there are many spectacular examples of what can be done with them.
This is not such an example.

Between the previous owner and the current one, it's been a project bike for the past decade plus.
Custom exhaust with minimal baffling really wakes you up in the morning when the out-of-spec idle mixture combusts with the valve open.
The gauge cluster is from a different bike, so the odometer is off, and the tach is slow to respond.
All 4 carbs were overhauled with a rebuild kit from Randakk, but that was 10 years ago.

She runs, rides, and mostly stops, but is NOT roadworthy.
The throttle return spring was never adjusted correctly after the carbs were off the bike so now there is a built in cruise control feature.
The brakes need work due to a broken sight glass on the front master and a sticky rear master.

Any test rides are at your own risk and must not go farther than around the block.
Headlight, tail light, and brake light work.
Had new tires put on since the photos were taken.
