Hello all, New member here. My name is Ben and from the great state of Tennessee. I just bought my very first Wing after a long wait to have one. I kind of like the older bikes and purchased a 1985 1200 GoldWing Interstate. The bike has some custom aftermarket stuff that I plan to get rid of and bring back to factory stock condition over the winter and have ready for spring,:D I do plane to go with a frame up restore on this bike as it needs some work (Very little) but still some things to fix. I'm pretty sure the stator is no good from the testing I've done so the motor would have to be pulled anyway for replacment. So anyway, Hello All and hope to be speaking with you very soon as I'm sure I'll need pointers along the way and hope you dont mind asking a few questions.

Question #1 Does anyone make a external bolt on charging system for my bike, from just what I've read the 84-89 1200 have big time stator problems and after all the frame paint work and rebuild I'd like the bike to last a while like a GoldWing should. I rode one in the 70's (Ole 1000) and till this day have never rode anything smoother!
SWEET BIKES!!!!

Best Regards and HAPPY NEW YEAR to all !!!!:D:)

Ole Ben

Welcom Ben from Wis. After 34 years running around on a CB-750 I purchased a GW 1982 A. It was in great shape, but so far I have stuck in over $1000 and still more to go. But it's going to be a long winter up here, so have plenty of time. I see you have done some home work on whats all out here on help, and so have I. I'm 70 years of age and this is all new to me with all the help and I love it.

Seems like help is just a lick away all the time, and all are so help full. So keep us posted as your new ride develops. Happy New Year.
