Hello and welcome to the forum.
Sounds like it could be a 'Prototype' Goldwing. Never heard the term used before.

I received a letter in the mail a couple of months ago. It was an invitation to participate in a motorcycle research project, although I can't remember who set it up. If I participated, they would mount several mini video cameras on the bike facing forward, backward, and on the dash with a view of the rider. I would be asked to periodically present the bike for the videos to download. The cameras would be on when ever the bike was being ridden. This would allow the researchers to study my riding habits, and accident causes were I involved in an accident. They had set ups for Hondas, Harleys and a couple of other bikes. As I recall, my local contact was through a university not far from my house. At the conclusion of the study, all video equipment would be removed and the bike returned to its original condition.

Since I can't ride until late February, I decided not to participate. Perhaps that was what was being called a research bike.

There is no such thing as a " ignorant " question " , but " dumb " responses are permissible because if they weren't I wouldn't be allowed to be here.

z2. I was looking at a 30th Anniversary 2005 a few years ago when first shopping for a Wing. A Nice silver color with some custom addys on it. The gal wanted about $14,000 for it. My wife wanted heated seats so I had to pass on it. Otherwise it would have been parked in my driveway.

I got it. I found it on Google. It is a 12 cylinder, hand made proto type motor completely made by one engineer in his shop.

This 12 cylinder motor machining and assembly is well worth watching.

That was amazing, I'm wondering if he had a purpose behind his engine build or did he just have to much time on his had, either way, I'm impressed.

I was just going to ask you if you had seen the term used on e-Bay listings, but you came to the right conclusion on your own.

Well, now that that's solved, I wonder what the life expectancy of that V12 is with no lubrication system on it...at least I didn't see any:confused:

10/4 I noticed the no lube issue as well. It's likely a manual lube from an oilcan when it's running.

Assuming you saw it on EBAY, it's a link you can use to RESEARCH facts, prices and other information relative to the Goldwing before buying one so that you can shop and compare with other bikes before purchasing.
