1979 GL1000 "Freedom" now for sale

Post by pidjones »

Pains me, but I don't have the room to store this when we get the new Spyder I ordered today. So let folks know that might be interested. I have her on Craigslist Knoxville and Facebook Marketplace. Hopefully someone coming to look at her tomorrow.

I've ridden this GL1000 for a couple years - mainly around town but loves the interstate, too. It isn't a show winner, but it attracts attention wherever it goes, and it is a real mile-eater. I had it for warm-weather riding. Runs great, starts right up after a winter lay-off as soon as fuel fills the float bowls. About four years on the tires, now. Two years on the belts. GPS goes with it if you want. '79s were the last GL1000s with updates that were great. Stiffer frame, smoother carbs and cams, bigger tail light. Odometer shows a little over 80K miles. I have no idea if it has been modified. AFAIK, I am the 3rd or 4th owner. 2015 registration showed only ~43K so the speedometer may have been swapped out. I know that in one former life it had full luggage and fairing, and another it was poorly done as a cafe.

Digital voltmeter
75-77 seat with new cover
Luggage rack
LED marker/turn signals
$2500 US (cash)
Price is firm, title in hand

She's gone. New owner will probably be (or has) joining. Texted me when he got home that it runs great and loves the ride. I'm happy for that. Not so happy that she is gone. Next, the '06 needs to go to make room. The RD isn't a reliable ride yet, so I guess Hunley is what I take to Time Warp tomorrow.

If I was spending more time in TN (folks have a winter place in Sevierville, but long story short, my Dad isn’t well, and there are enough projects to keep me busy for a couple years). I would certainly be interested in your 06.
