Unread posts What this forum is all about

With so much wrong information on the net, This forum was created in April of 2007 to provide owners with the most accurate information available to us for the flat 4 and 6 cylinder Goldwings.
This community consists of like members restoring and improving them on a small budget.

We think outside the box on many things here as there are many ways to get the job done and keep these old girls on the road.

CGW was not created to make money and there are NO sponsors paying the bills to influence our discussions.
Donations made by members keep the lights on. As long as these donations continue to come in, and we can afford the server costs we will NOT have any advertisements, sponsors, or popup ads of any kind!

So go ahead, create an account and introduce yourself in the New Member Forum then join in on the discussions!

Unread posts Alternator Conversion

Or more accurately, Alternator addition because the old stator usually stays in place.

Installation of a car style alternator is both practical and necessary if you want to drive more accessories on your four cylinder.



Would this work for my conversion?

Unread posts For Sale or Wanted

Be descriptive in your post with as much detail as possible.

In order to help prevent misunderstandings between the seller and buyer, you MUST post at least 1 clear photo of the item(s) being sold with as much detail about your item(s) as you can in your post #1. Seller should note any flaws in the parts, etc.

Transactions are between the seller and buyer so it is their responsibility to work out final costs and terms including shipping and work out an agreement if the part does not fit or was not what you expected before finalizing the transaction.

Please also keep in mind that an automatic "Prune" function moves all For Sale threads to the For Sale archive after 60 days. Advise an admin or moderator when your done with the ad or if you'd like to have it run longer.
