Hi all,
the subject is a 1975 GL1000 my kid brother gave me in 1980 something!
Started riding fifty five years ago when I was 10; mustering sheep on a million acre station in the goldfields region of Western Australia. Haven't stopped riding and hope there's a few more miles ahead.

The station bikes were 4 very reliable C92 Honda Benly's; my father's Golden Flash BSA remained broken down in the corner of the shed. He said in 1966 I could have the bike, and in 1980 I restored it. I ride it regularly in club events, and don't get left behind.

By the end of the 60's I was enjoying the thrills that lightweight japanese two strokes delivered.

I am still working in the field of fluid power (hydraulics) and have a range of british and jap bikes, all of which get a regular run.

I have (too) many bike projects "on the go" but by the end of this year will start restoring the wire wheel GL1000 a brother gave me, once I have completed a pre-war Ariel Square Four restoration.

I rode the Honda years ago before pedantic brother pulled it apart; what a contrast to my tuned RD350B!

He decided there was a knock in the engine which needed to be investigated, so pulled it apart and found.......nothing wrong!

At this stage he wearied of it all and gave the bike to me "as is"; engine re-assembled but not in the rolling chassis.

My wife surprises me and jumps on the back of a BSA when we have one and two day club events; I keep telling her if she thinks the Super Rocket is fun, the Gold Wing is in another league!

I am looking forward to learning from fellow forum members,
Wangine

Welcome. Strap the GL1000 engine to two 4x4s (or doubled 2x4s) screwed to a wooden furniture dolly. This makes it easy to add frame and other bits until finally the dolly is removed from a near- finished bike. The wife can help maneuver the frame on to prevent scratching paint.

The wife can help ...


Welcome from east Texas, USA. You'll find a lot useful information from the folks here at Classic. I've been working on my '75 "wire wheel" Wing since December last year. Couldn't have done it without there help.

Later, Bud...
