I used to have a GL1100 that got naked and cafeed a couple of years ago. A thread about that is somewhere around here on the forum "Bamse the Ice Cream Racer" or something like that. I liked that bike but someone liked to buy it.
Anyway, this summer a man on a bicycle skidded in to my driveway hauling he had looked for me a while. I asked him why, and he sad he knew I was totally in to goldwings (I did not know that myself, so that was exiting). He then told me he had 1975 gl1000 that he wanted me to have. I followed him back to his house just a couple of hundred meters away in to at tent shed in his yard. I found this...
Cx500, NSR125, CBX550, GT250, RD500, GL1000 and more. Atleast 25 bikes, mostly 80's but a few from the 70's too.
We pulled it out in the sun
It was stored in that tent for ten years but looked ok. He told med he drove it there and had plans to restore it to it's former glory. We made a deal, hooked up the bags, and I pushed the bike home to clean it off.
Back at home I saw what ten years in a tent can do to the lower details on a bike, spokes were rusty, center stand too, but over all a good project bike. The next few days the P.O came by with more and more stuff he found in his house that he had bought for the bike during the years. A good used seat, a brand new center stand, all kinds of bis and pieces for engine renovation, Haynes manual, Honda work shop manual and parts list.
My goal now is to restore this bike as it came from the factory 1975, candy blue green an beautiful.
This can happen when you talk with strangers.
