How do I find an original Honda Shop Manual?
I'm shopping for a Genuine Honda Shop manual, not an after market. anyone have one to sell, or a line on how to determine if it's the real deal? Seems I've seen a black manual with red and gold on the cover, but how else can I tell if she's the real deal? Current ball park costs? And if you've got one to sell, shoot me a PM.

Just picked one up off ebay, got delivered today. Cover was only slightly worn but all pages were clean. $25. + $10. For years '84-'87. Was way less that my CBX manual. Some on there are very used but some nice clean ones too. Usually $45.-$60. is good. Later.

Sometimes Amazon.com sells them, like now there are two or three going for about $49
[BTW these are used book sellers and as such you can contact them and haggle over prices ... remember haggling? It used to be part of the good old capitalist, market-directed system! :YMALIEN: ]

I also bought an authentic shop manual two years ago intended for but NOT useful for my Interstate because it is for the "elite" GL1200s. I'll check to see what it is exactly and post that here.

Often, items NOT listed in N.America's eBay do show up in the U.K. ... for example:

GENUINE HONDA DEALERS WORKSHOP MANUAL GL1200 A & D GOLDWING with a current bid by one soul for £3.50 (about $7) so far. Shipping from the old sod to the N. American colonies: ? Inside the United Kingdom £4.40

Bidding Time left: 4d 20h

Also for sale in the U.K.

HONDA GL1200 GOLDWING ASPENCADE GENUINE SERVICE MANUAL SUPPLEMENT with a Buy It Now price of £19.99 plus shipping

Just by looking at the above pics you can tell that they're the real deal.

There are a few other authentic GL1200 shop manuals of different sorts and models.
So go fishing on the Thames! :d

Remember, it's the journey, not the destination, that matters.

Etc.

Way to go.

Thanks for the tip! I just ordered the set. Even though I like thumbing through the original shop manuals, it sure is convenient to print out the section you need in the garage. Then you don't mind getting greasy finger prints all over the pages ... rather than in the pretty OEM manual.
