    Winter projects

    My windshield is showing some signs of wear...very fine scratches and abrasions from years of being "sand blasted" by the various things blowing around during the course of daily riding. There is nothing major but it is enough to where if the sun hits it just right, the light diffuses and makes...

    I think my wing is upset with me

    So the weekend before last I went out for the final ride of the season. Everything was fine. I parked her in her little corner of the garage...did all my standard prep work for winter storage and all was good...until. I go into the garage today to stock up the wood pile for the stove (yes, my...

    Biketoberfest 2010

    Got back from Biketoberfest a few hours ago and brought a new toy home. It was just sitting there on Main Street in Daytona with a for sale sign on it, what was I suppose to do...I couldn't just leave it there. I love my wing but I have a very soft spot in my heart for 2nd gen Magna's.

    Weird overheating problem

    Hey all, as I've stated in previous posts, this is my first wing...a '77 GL1000 so I'm hoping for some experienced insight before I go poking around internally. The bike runs pretty good, I can run all day as long as I stay below 60 mph. As soon as I go over 60 the temp starts to climb. It takes...

    New GW fan in Illinois

    Hello from west central Illinois. I have been fiddling with and riding cruisers for many years now. A few months back I accepted a '77 GL1000 in payment for a debt. I wasn't too happy with this situation at first. The bike was a real mess...there were more parts missing or scattered randomly in...

    Just found this forum and am hoping someone can help me. I have a '77 GL1000, had to replace the head gaskets but in doing so we screwed up the timing and have no idea how to correct it. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
