Hello everyone...

After years of riding late-model 'Wings... this week, I picked up a very clean 1978 GL1000.

While I've played around with old Hondas before, and even restored a few... I'll admit that my knowledge base for these vintage 'Wings is pretty basic, but I look forward to learning more about them. I'll post a few photos later, once I get the hang of how this site operates. :)

Beautiful bike. We don't often see them in such good condition.

The shininess on the front tire tread caught my eye. Be careful riding it if that is in fact a shine from old age and hard tread. Tire could slide right out in a lean.

The fact that it has turned over 40k and remains in pristine condition speaks to a lot of previous love and affection. Very nice motorcycle.
