New again here.


Post by newday777 »

Well I've been away from here a few years and couldn't find my screen name or password to match up so I've re registered.(probably all on my old desktop in storage last 7 yrs, I just use my phone now).
Anyhow I'm bringing back to life my 83 Aspencade again and also considering a 75 1000 restoration.
I was a parts manager in 1975 and 76 and remember well the first gl1000 opened from the crate at the shop in southern NH in 1975. I was riding my 75 CB750 K5 at the time. I didn't get my 1st wing until 2009 when I got back to riding from raising my family and was single again, my 83.
I'm on my 4th wing now, still have my 83 and an 08, my daily rider which I've put on @105,000 miles in the past 6 years, as well as a couple of CB750s to ride and work on.
I had a couple of 99 1500s before my 08. A 99SE that a friend left to me that I only put 50,000 miles on of a planned 500,000 before a girl in a cage pulled out in front on me, totaled it and did me in for a while but while healing i bought a neglected 99 Aspencade and brought it out of it's death sleep bringing it back to life and we both healed up and back to riding. I had already made the deal on the 08 so I had both for a year but continued to do upgrades to the 99A before putting it on the market.
I was a longtime member on goldwingfacts forum but got burned out when it got sold off to mc.commies.
I'm still a member at

My 83 just after it's first resurrection in late 2009.
And my 75 CB750 K5.
And my 08 last late October riding from NH to San Diego where I winter. I plan to be on the road again in May or June, back to NH.
Always take the long way around. I love rideabouts.

A long time awaiting Thanks for the comments guys. Life has had it's busy times the past couple years and I haven't been on here much......
The 750 is one of my favorite bikes to get out on local rides and events on. Like here, a real attention getter and fun to ride.
I got stuck in San Diego through 2020 instead of my normal ride back to NH. Rather than work on my 83 I was asked by a friend to work on his 74 CB750 that his father in law gave to him. It sat in a rat infested shed in Orange County for 33 years. Took it down to the frame and repainted the frame, fixed the few rat chewed wires....argh! Cleaned up the motor but he ran out of money for parts to refresh the top end and cam chain rollers so I puttered on with a few things on it over the summer as I didn't have work either. I had to give up my room there in Oceanside and went over outside Vegas to help my ex out and her brother on some projects for the winter while waiting for my second granddaughter to be born in late February then back to Oceanside in early April to do a couple of jobs(carpentry) before heading back to NH in late May.
I got back here thinking my battery on the 750 would be toast as I left it on a good Schumacher smart tender. Well it was still at 95% so I rinsed out the MMO out of the gas tank(I empty the gas tank and carbs before I leave each fall and give it a good coat of MMO to protect it from rusting. Spun the motor over w/kill off to build the oil pressure up until the light goes off, turned on the fresh gas for a few minutes. It took a little coaxing to for and ran on 2 cylinders. Shut it off and drained each carb. I found MMO heavily in the 2 carbs that didn't fire. Once all four carbs were drained to fresh gas coming out and buttoned back up it fired up on all four smartly. I was half expecting to have to clean the carbs but nope, it pays to drain off the gas properly each fall. It's great to get out on it again after it's year and a half sleep.......
