Hello from Ohio. I have an 84 GL1200 Interstate that I bought 4 years ago and have since restored it. My wife and I ride every chance we get and am always looking for information to keep the
bike running like new.
This looks like a great site.
Loved the lines of the 'cuda from the mid '60's get-go, but the price and the performance package of the '69 Dart swayed myself and my brother to the boxier car (yeah, this is a m/c site, but what the hay).
The bike was complete, but had spent a lot of time on an open carport or patio. Much of the chrome was pitted so we replaced most of the trim with new or good stuff from Ebay. I have a friend in northern Ohio that is a wizard on Gold Wings. I sent the bike up to him and he worked the carbs over. The bike runs great now. I replaced the seat with a Saddleman gel seat. We just did a 730 mile, 2.5 day trip up to Northern Pa. and got over 43 MPG with 2 up and luggage, so for a 26 year old bike, it does well. I will post some pictures of it soon.
