My Bike Models: 1979 GL 1000

Profile Personal album

I bought a '79 GL 1000 two weeks ago, because my wife loves bikes and has never had one. I haven't ridden for 25 years, but my dream bike has always been the GL 1000 ...
https://drive.google.com/open?id=1p28RauzJoDMPEH8-_CHy64ey9Zv3JxNB

When I found out that there we a number of small things that needed to be replaced on the Wing, I decided to get a parts bike ...
https://photos.app.goo.gl/ojF6JTSN3AmEwHBE2

But when I go to buy the bike, I find out it actually runs and is pretty clean with has roached out chrome. So jokingly I tell my wife that I'm going to make her a set of training wheels so she can ride one of the Wings.

Then I find out that there are actually DIY kits for adding outboard wheels for your motorcycle! (i.e. training wheels)
https://www.supertrike.net/shop/

Does this mean another parts bike? And the beginning of an obsession?

Yes and yes. Sorry. Wish I had better news. Should get your affairs in order. (Like making space in the garage).

Lucky man.... a man who's wife wants to ride her own Wing, I think I just heard angel trumpets!

Yep build them both bro, and yes this is how it starts. Man you are in for the time of your life. Plus finding THIS community, do you play the lottery? If not you should. :BigGrin:

Both bikes are beautiful.
