Hey guys here is a quick shot of the gl1100 I picked up for 2k

Its owner was a rich collector that kept it pristine. .. not a scratch on it anywhere, to be honest I have never seen such a well kept bike


timing belts, gaskets gromits, oil. filter anti freeze etc came to 200.00 will do the work tomorrow and post pics.

Wow, great looking machine. Looks like it has never been on the road. How many miles on the clock??

75k / KM Canada...
it has had 1 owner, he has done all the right things here, its really a testament to how a bike can be maintained in function AND appearence.

I had a great chat with a 68 year old Honda expert that used to BUILD these engines... he informed me it was not initially intended for motorcycles, and the origin was that the motor was initially desigend for Marine use ! and meant to run 24 hours a day for extended periods etc...

very interesting

From what I've seen and heard on this forum and others, Honda engines run a long time with very few problems. 200k on a Honda engine is not uncommon. So your findings do not surprise me. Enjoy your new scoot and ride safe...

I love old bikes and you have a good one. Get out there and you will find many people will get a kick out of seeing it on the road. I know that I do. Two weeks ago I was in the city and I had some-one waiting for me to return to my 1985 vf700 because he was impressed on it condition. It is a well used bike but I do my best to keep it in good codition. I use it as a everyday ride and last year clocked up 18000 miles. Best of luck with it. Eric

Very nice from the picture it looks like it just came out of a crate that has been lost in time and recently discovered.

Can you post anymore pictures of your bike. I love older bikes. I ride a 91 1500. When I tell people how old my bike is they can't believe it. I try to keep it clean and shiny.
