I would like to buy a used GoldWing to get the feel of a GoldWing before spending a LOT to get one that is really decent. I have been looking at USED GoldWings in the $2 to $4 k range They are very old and/or have very high mileage. For example, found 1990 GL1500 with 150k mileage - but needs a fork lifter on one gear (and maybe a gear or two). I don't want to buy a bucket of rust - so how do I balance purchase price AND mileage AND repair costs? How many miles can you put on a GoldWing before you need to replace a lot of stuff or risk the ruin of your bike? If you drop the engine on a bike with 150k in mileage then what else should you replace? How do you decide the breakpoint where you say, "It is not worth it!"? How many miles until you say, "It is not worth buying or fixxng?" Thanks for your input.
