Before they became land yachts, the honda goldwing was a game changer. In 1975, when they first came out, performance was the goal, and this big, heavy bike was only slightly behind one other bike in the quarter mile. One found me yesterday for 300.00 and it has a title and always garage kept. The 'Tins' on these bikes are hard to come by and the side covers and faux tank panels are highly desirable in decent original paint. Muffler groups are the same. i could make money on the deal just selling the tins and running the bike. My go to bike has been a CB750, but the 'wing actually comes off the stand more easily and is very easy to balance because of the very low center of gravity. I am sure that there will be challenges in carb rebuilding and then on to getting fire in the hole. Parts are readily available for the mechanicals and I already have nice potential for a decent looking old school bike. Wings of this era weigh about 650 pounds quite a bit different than the monsters of today.The "fuel tank" is not really a tank. Honda put the actual tank under the side covers to lower the center of gravity even more. I have taken a seat on some newer models and they make my hip joints hurt, but the slimmer profile of the 1976 sits as nice as my 750. here is a pic of an example bike
