Hello All!!!!!
Well I did't see an area for self intro.
So, I decided this would be as good a place as any..

I am the proud new owner of a 1985 Goldwing GL1200LTD.
Drove it home with only the left front brake, and of course the clutch.

Her is the beauty as I got her home.

And this is her after I pulled her into the garage and closed the door.. Vomited all over the place.

I have an electrical gremlin... I might have found...
I think the Rear/Right front brake master cylinder needs a rebuild.
One front fork leaks. Will tear those down in the next week or so.
Get nothing from the Air Ride setup. First need to find the correct wires and see if the compressor works.
All in all I think I should be able to figure this out and get her back together....... I hope.

Yes. I agree. Very nice ORIGINAL condition. It hasn't been molested by the chrome and light monster's! 8)

Didn't take you long to take it all apart to see how it works! :lol:

Best wishes on the restoration and returning it to her original glory!

looks like a beauty, I did that when I bought mine last year and did quite a bit of work to get everything working correctly.
really got to know Vanna through the process. I love my bike and have no plans of replacing her anytime soon.

good luck with your repairs and if you need help along the way don't hesitate to ask..
