I have recently purchased a 1986 Goldwing SE. It has not run
since 1996 and I am in the process of dismantling it with the idea of
restoring it to running condition. I have removed all fenders, saddle bags, fairings, etc to get down to the basics of seeing if I can get
it to run. It is a fuel injected 1200 model and the fuel tank is very
rusty inside. I will attempt to start it from a gas can but am concerned about using the old tank. Local dealer says $700.00 +
for new tank, if available. I was wondering about good used tanks
or aftermarket new ones. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

Welcome aboard Jeffry. Depending on how bad the tank is, if you can't find a replacement, there is a kit available to flush and recoat the inside of the tank. I know several guys who have done it with great success, but it does depend on the severity of the contamination.
