We recently purchased a 1992 Goldwing Trike and the lady we bought it from said she was having trouble with the lock on the top trunk and she wasn't kidding. The mechanism inside the trunk has come apart and we cannot get it open. My husband took it to a friend who has a bodyshop and the worked on it an hour and could not get it open. Even used one of those tools they use to open a locked car door. Anyone have any suggestions how we can get it open, it would be greatly appreciated.:confused:

Welcome to the forum from Pennsylvania and congrats on your new trike. Could have been worse, you could have put the keys in the trunk.... Hope the link Fossil gave you helps. If you have the owners manual, it may also give instructions on how to open the trunk when the outside latch won't work. Good luck. Hope you enjoy the forum and ride safe, even with a locked trunk.....

turn the key to the LEFT and it should pop open, if that doesn't open it than try this.
You need a wire coat hanger or length pf brazing rod, hooked at one end. if you insert it between the 3 latch levers under the trunk and up you will be able to hook the long bar that runs across (about 3 or 4 inches up) and pull it down. Usually takes quite a few attempts to get it. The middle picture shows the bar that you need to pull down So you need to get your coat hanger up through the gap and turn the hook around (facing the back of the bike) and pull the long bar down. It isn't too easy but you will get it done.
Once you get it open you can attach a long wire tie or a piece of string to the bar and let it hand down by the release latches incase it happens again

Hi ya! I remember someone else in our chapter having trouble with this and our member enhancement co-ordinator Rick Brown had a solution. You can reach him at: [email protected]. Just intro yourself and tell him your problem and he will get back to you pronto or he will put you in touch with the man with the tools. We have a wiz of a mechanic that does lots of our trikes here in MD. He also works on our 1989 Gold Wing (straight/not trike). debs
