Hi All,

Just found my dream bike, an all original (i hope) 1975 gl 1000--cracked gauge faces and all!

The PO is putting on a new fuel pump for me and then I'm on my own :eek:

I can't wait to run a few tanks of fuel through it!

I am looking for any guidance on making this beaut a good daily driver.

I am young, and I wouldn't call myself a winger, but I hope I can get a warm welcome.:eek:

Hey Moose, nice bike. I love some of the older classic bikes like these. Looks pretty good from a distance. My first was an 85 Aspencade and now ride a 95 Aspy. Welcome to the forum. There's allot to gain here on this web forum. Good luck with your new to you super cool 75 GL 1000.

There should be some pictures on my original post. Some times it just shows a cross out box, but when I right click and select "view image" i can see it.

I went back to IE and brought up the photos from the box with the X, Opera security doesn't let a lot of stuff in. Sent the images to my documents and dropped them in here.
It's a very nice looking Wing for its age.

Hello Brother Moose; Bison here. Yeah, these little scooters are fun bikes aren't they!

You may want to run 4-6oz of Seafoam in those first 5-6 tanks of fuel to clean out the carbs, and in the crankcase if you should do an oil/filter change before long. Clean is our friend, and more important inside than outside. Gee, that almost sounds philosophical.
