1974 Honda CB350 Four. Nice quality custom paint, newer tires. Odometer shows 30304 miles. Carburetors were recently removed to be rebuilt, but the bike ran before the carbs were removed. Carbs are in nice condition but still need rebuilt. Chrome is presentable, not perfect but definitely presentable. Seat is in good shape. Exhaust is intact with no holes. Front brakes will need work. Headlight is missing because the bike had a Vetter fairing on it, I could include the fairing if you want it, and it has been painted to match. I also have a nice set of Bates style hard saddlebags that are painted to match that could be included at an extra cost. Two of the carb boots are missing and the seat pins are missing. Overall a very nice CB350F, not a perfect bike, but definitely a looker.I also have a 1969 Honda CB450 for sale and have included a couple pictures of it, I'm asking $2500 for it, it is not currently running but the motor turns over, it's a very solid bike. I would be happy to make a package deal on both bikes. $100 deposit via Paypal required within 24 hours of auction end, balance due in cash or cashier's check drawn on US Bank. This bike is local pick up only in Springfield, Illinois. Any and all shipping arrangements are the buyer's responsibility, I will do whatever I can to accommodate shipping, I know a few bike shippers that I can recommend. I would prefer the bike be picked up within 3 weeks of auction end. All funds must clear before the bike is released. SCAMMERS WILL BE REPORTED TO EBAY IMMEDIATELY.

It has been kept indoors undercover for many years.The carbs have been rebuilt it runs and idles exactly like it should. As you can tell from the pictures the paint .lenses,gauges are bright with no fading of color. The paint on the frame is all original and in exceptional condition. The chrome is absolutley outstanding with not even the beginings of surface rust. The original owners manual and tool kit are included. I really dont know where you would find a Cb 350 in more original and pristine condition.It would be the perfect addition for anyones collection.

Here’s one of the best parts about choosing an off-road motorcycle from Honda. You don’t have to pick one that’s too big, or one that’s too small. Because with a whole range of models, from mini to mighty, you’re sure to find one that’s just the perfect fit in terms of both size and performance. Take our CRF110F, for example. In terms of seat height and weight, it’s between our CRF125F and our CRF50F. And it offers a 110 cc air-cooled engine that’s super reliable and built to deliver the kind of power your young Red Rider needs. In addition, the CRF110F features both an effortless electric starter and a kick starter, as well. And it all teams up with our four-speed transmission with automatic clutch that’s been proven in thousands of bikes, so younger riders never have to worry about stalling or a handlebar-mounted clutch. The CRF110F is a great off-road, fun bike that younger riders are going to love. And, better than that, they’re going to remember all the fun they had riding it—and with you—for the rest of their lives.

Some of the hottest bikes on the vintage AHRMA scene are the four stroke old school thumpers. We are offering a very special bike which fits the vintage rider who is looking for low seat height, strong usable power and a truly classic look. This 1974 Honda 350 XL has been built to race motocross, scrambles, tt or flat track, truly a very capable bike in any of those types of races. Front forks are early Honda Elsinore and rear shocks are Works Performance. We just installed new custom exhaust with megaphone silencer, new clutch, new whirl pull throttle, new Mikuni carb, new air cleaner, wide pegs and new kill button all in the last two months. The bike was raced once by a slow 65 year old Vet rider, me! I certainly didn't come close to using the bikes potential, but the fun factor was off the charts. The bike pulls like a tractor, shifts smooth and handles surprising well for her age and weight. The tank and frame have been painted all white to give it a Mugen Honda look. The seat is solid, wheels and spokes are strong and true and the tires are in great shape. It is very seldom we say, this but this is a true race ready bike, just gas her up, put on your numbers and enjoy!

Selling a nice clean vintage 1974 Honda MR50 Elsinore kids minibike. This is a neat little vintage machine that appears to be in great original condition. I dont know a ton about the MR50, but I was told this was all original. Sold with a bill of sale only. Not registered in the state of CA. I bought it to ride back and fourth to my mailbox. I have had it for about 2 years and it runs well. Tank and seat are in great shape for the bikes age. I think its all original, right down to grips, but I am not an expert on the MR 50's. The plastic is in great shape but has normal scuffing from age. Please look closely at the pics. I would not call it mint, but I would call it a very clean rider. Everything is straight, bars, levers, pegs. The brake lever tip is broke off, but its a clean break. This is a cool bike because it is both a two stroke AND it has a working clutch. All the other Honda mini's are four strokes and automatic. This would make a great addition to your collection or use as a pit bike or a rider. The boring stuff (but please read):Shipping: I suggest you use Daily Direct for transport. Their phone number is 888-haulbikes, and they are professionals with a strong track record of moving expensive and nice motorcycles. Daily Direct offers door to door "roll on" and "roll off" service. I can ship anywhere in the USA with Daily Direct for $450. I can and will ship international, but the buyer must coordinate this, as the process can be cumbersome. I will assist as best as possible and do have really good access to shippers to the UK, Europe and Australia. I can also ship to the middle east as well. But please note that all paperwork will be handled by the buyer. I dont do paperwork very well. Seller Notes: If you are a serious buyer and have the money in hand, I am happy to talk to you on the phone about whatever questions or interest you have in the bikes. But please, no time wasters or tire kickers. If you are a serious buyer, it is available to be shown for you or to an agent of your choice. I always suggest you have someone review a bike before buying, but realize it is not always practical, as sometimes matter of opinion on condition can be different. But I am not looking for tire kickers or time wasters. The bike is located in Northern California. Payment: A $500 non refundable deposit is due within 24 hours of closing, or a friendly phone call or clear email on who you are and how you intend to close the deal. I am very easy to work with, but a little clear communication goes a long way with me. We will take payment however is easiest for you for to send, as we understand that some buyers might be out of the country. Cash, bank to bank payment, bank check, Paypal, WU, Carrier Pidgin - whatever - but as long as it clears our bank and you are not playing the Nigerian lottery with me, I could care less how it comes. Just make sure it comes. My bikes are always for sale locally and I reserve the right to end the listing at any time if a local buyer comes forward. In case you are wondering anything about me as a seller, I have been on eBay since 1998 (thats over 16 years) and have not one negative feedback. I am just a nut for older dirt bikes and ATV's from the 1980's. I have a nice collection of bikes that I have built up over 15 years of collecting and messing about. I have several others that I am selling, including several 85 - 86 250r's and 350x's, as well as a 86 200x and a 86 atc250sx. I am clearing out some bikes to make room for other projects, so hit me up if you are interested in one of them.. See my other listings for some more of my stuff, but I doubt I will get around to listing all of them.

The Honda CB350F is a four-cylinder, four-stroke, 347 cc motorcycle based on the larger versions of the day. The motorcycle was manufactured in Japan from 1972 to 1974. In 2012, Motorcycle Classics said the 350F was "the smallest capacity multi-cylinder motorcycle ever to enter into full-scale production."[1]

FIRST YEAR GOLDWING. The 40th ANNIVERSARY Goldwing just came out with Special Badging and Paint.Own the Inaugural bike. Low serial # 1139 bike out the door for Honda, Build date 2/75 EVERY THING WORKS. Ride it home, even to the West Coast or Key West. New rear tire and battery. We are including Replacement SPEEDOMETER and Tachometer since the original ones are weak, no extra charge. They are perfect, keep the original since the early bikes all had a problem with the meter faces. Honda's Goldwing GL1000. The Honda Goldwing first saw the light of day at the Cologne Motorcycle Show in October 1974, as the flat-four cylinder, 999cc GL1000. While this first production version of the now famous Goldwing was ultimately deemed to be a success (it was after all the birth of a legend), it's place in the world of motorcycling was not entirely cast in stone at the beginning. Part of the reason for this was the fact that the GL1000 didn't really fit properly into any particular motorcycle class, even though it was officially tagged as a tourer. Weighing in at 584lbs dry, it was far too heavy to be called a sports bike and the upright sitting position also helped to kill of any such sporting pretensions. The rear coil spring suspension wasn't up to the job of handling all the weight when the rider was pushing it through heavy going, such as the winding country roads that all bikers love (at least occasionally) to tackle. The total absence of touring kit fitted as standard didn't help the official touring image either, although Honda did offer a top fairing as an accessory throughout the production life of the GL1000. Nevertheless and in spite of all the confusion about the Goldwings role in life, the GL1000 proved to be a very reliable motorcycle, quite capable of going very long distances without missing a beat and after a while the aftermarket fairing & pannier suppliers started to cater for the requests of those who wanted to use the GL1000 for more than just popping down to the shops or Sunday morning posing at the local meet. This is what finally gave the Goldwing it's place in the motorcycling world, it became a touring motorcycle more by accident than design and Honda, always keen to keep an ear to the ground, listened to what the customers wanted (just as well too or they might have killed the Goldwing off before long, not least because expected sales of the Goldwing in the first year of production were less than 10% of what Honda had predicted) and started planning the next incarnation of what has turned into a legend in the world of touring motorcycles. 40 Years of Premier Sport Touring Performance AUTHOR American HondaPOSTED Sep 04, 2014POSTED IN Street Gold Wing Timeline In the world of motorcycling, technology presses forward at such a furious pace that very few models survive a span of a couple dozen years. But for more than three-and-a-half decades, the Gold Wing® has done much more than merely survive: This remarkable machine has continued to create and define an entire segment of the motorcycling experience, raising standards and expectations time and time again. The following timeline provides a glimpse into the many milestones that have made the Gold Wing the icon it is today. 1975 GL1000 GOLD WING The original Gold Wing was much, much more than just a new motorcycle. Powered by a revolutionary 999cc liquid-cooled horizontally opposed four-cylinder engine, the Gold Wing opened new possibilities never before considered by the experts in the enthusiast press, much less the consumer public in general. What to make of this open-class machine with world-class power and cross-country capabilities? Gold Wing customers took to the open road in droves, and helped inspire an industry-wide paradigm shift toward long-distance motorcycling. 1976 GL1000 GOLD WING LTD A new model marks the Gold Wing’s second year as Honda graces the GL1000 Limited Edition with an assortment of special features, including gold striping, special LTD sidecover badges, chromed radiator shroud and screen, quilt-patterned seat, plus gold wheels and spokes. 1979 With more than 80 percent of Gold Wing production being exported to North America, a vital need arose to build a production plant in the U.S. Although Honda had been building overseas plants for more than 25 years, the move to America in the 1970s was risky. To most consumers, Honda’s quality was its strongest selling point, and building in America could jeopardize this hard-earned reputation—not just for the Gold Wing, but for all Honda products for decades to come. Nevertheless, Honda forged ahead, and on September 10, 1979, the first Honda of America Manufacturing (HAM) plant begins production as a group of 64 associates completes the first 10 Honda motorcycles built in Marysville, Ohio. Within three months, Honda’s top managers had sufficient confidence in HAM’s capabilities to proceed with building an automobile plant in 1979—the first Japanese car builder to do so in the U.S. 1980 GL1100 GOLD WING Five years of continuous consumer input culminate in the introduction of the GL1100. More than a rehashed GL1000 with 10 percent greater displacement, the new Wing incorporates deliberately planned modifications that guide it away from the superbike realm and place it squarely into the touring category. The new 1085cc engine now favors torque rather than horsepower, a longer wheelbase provides more room for both pilot and passenger, and a new air-assisted suspension system gives the Gold Wing its most supple, comfortable ride to date. GL1100 GOLD WING INTERSTATE The GL1100 also introduced another innovation that was arguably more important than its mechanical changes. Since the Gold Wing’s long-distance prowess had inspired the creation of an entire aftermarket of bolt-on touring accessories, Honda’s engineers clearly envisioned a new direction toward a turnkey, fully dressed luxury machine. In 1980, the innovative Interstate fulfilled that vision as the first Gold Wing available fully equipped with factory-installed fairing, saddlebags and trunk, plus the option of a stereo sound system. Turnkey touring, Gold Wing style, is born. 1982 GL1100 GOLD WING ASPENCADE In quick succession, Honda introduces the concept of luxury touring with the Aspencade. Amenities abound in standard trim, including LCD instrumentation, stereo, CB, on-board air-compressor and thoughtful touches such as the handy storage pouches in the passenger backrest. At the same time, through the use of Redpages in its advertising, Honda underscores its technological edge. 1984 GL1200 GOLD WING ASPENCADE The GL1200 brought the Gold Wing to the outer limits of the four-cylinder engine’s performance and sophistication. The added power and torque of the larger 1182cc engine made the Gold Wing the king of its class in 1984, with a combination of smoothness and low-rpm acceleration that couldn’t be matched. The addition of hydraulic valve adjustment now made the Wing virtually maintenance-free. At the same time, chassis improvements made the big Wing feel amazingly agile, and open-road comfort was superlative. 1985 GL1200 LIMITED EDITION Honda marks the Wing’s 10th anniversary in two significant ways. First, with the Gold Wing so firmly entrenched within the touring realm, Honda decides to drop the standard, unfaired GL1200. Second, an ultra-luxurious Limited Edition arrives, complete with computerized fuel injection, four-speaker sound system, cruise control, auto-leveling rear suspension, a comprehensive electronic travel computer and special two-tone metallic gold paint. Following the success of its Marysville Motorcycle Plant, Honda constructs an engine plant in nearby Anna, Ohio, to build Gold Wing engines. Just as Marysville’s success paved the way for Honda’s auto manufacturing in America, the Anna Engine Plant moved from manufacturing GL engines alone to building powerplants for Civics and Accords. At Anna, all the casting, forging, machining and heat-treating processes necessary to turn raw materials into finished, sophisticated engines reside under one roof. As one associate proudly observes, “We do what seven Honda plants do in Japan.” 1988 GL1500 GOLD WING In 1984 a new design team began planning the next Wing. The new machine had to be superior in every aspect: extremely quiet and silky smooth, yet extremely powerful with superior handling. The GL1500 got there—the hard way. Thousands of hours were spent in testing 15 different machines in 60 prototype stages—the most comprehensive model development project in Honda’s history. These efforts culminated in a six-cylinder luxury motorcycle of such surpassing excellence it would establish a touring benchmark that would dominate motorcycling for more than a decade. 1993 The next-generation GL begins to take shape under the guidance of Masanori Aoki, a sportbike enthusiast who has already headed up development of high-performance bikes including the CBR250RR, CBR400RR and the CBR®600F3. “We set out to keep 80 percent of the Gold Wing’s touring capability,” Aoki said. But he also added, “My job is to add more fun factor, to build a Gold Wing with the kind of acceleration and handling people normally associate with sporting machines.” After considering flat-four, flat-six and flat-eight engine configurations and displacements up to 2000cc, customer response overwhelmingly points to a flat-six of about 1800cc displacement. In 1998, a full-scale model is created. 1996 The one-millionth Honda motorcycle made in America rolls off the Marysville assembly line. Appropriately enough, the millionth model is a Gold Wing; this commemoration is altogether fitting, since the success of the Gold Wing and that of Honda in America are inextricably intertwined. 2000 In January 2000, the Marysville Motorcycle Plant is thoroughly redesigned to build the new Gold Wing. As part of this process, the engine production line is transferred from Anna to Marysville to facilitate the new Gold Wing production. The Gold Wing’s new era officially begins when the first complete GL1800 rolls off the Marysville assembly line on October 10, 2000. 2001 GL1800 GOLD WING The word “new” cannot do justice to the GL1800. Two numbers alone tell a big story: 118 bhp and 125 lb./ft. of torque. Don’t try to find other bikes that compare, because there aren’t any. In terms of power, the new Gold Wing is literally in a class of one. Likewise, the list of long-legged mounts offering a box-section aluminum frame begins with the word “Gold” and ends with “Wing.” And that’s only the beginning. Before the GL1800 was completed, Honda would patent no less than 20 technological innovations that were incorporated into this amazing high-performance luxury motorcycle. 2005 GL1800 GOLD WING The 30th anniversary Gold Wing comes in a slew of colors, including Pearl Yellow, White, Metallic Silver, Dark Gray Metallic, Bright Blue Metallic and Candy Black Cherry. Special 30th anniversary color-matched badging on the front fairing, rear trunk and dash cover also distinguish the ’05 model, as does a 30th anniversary color-matched key, 30th anniversary opening ceremony on the LCD display, and unique carbon-fiber seat pattern on pearl yellow and metallic silver colors. To date, more than 500,000 Gold Wings have been produced. 2006 GL1800 GOLD WING In 2006, the most potent Gold Wing ever produced now elevates luxury motorcycling to unprecedented highs. A six-speaker premium audio system with 80 watts per channel comes standard on every new GL1800, and riders may also opt for a satellite navigation system with color screen, a Cold-Weather Comfort Package and an industry-first fully integrated motorcycle airbag. 2012 Manufacture of the Gold Wing shifts to the ultra-modern facility in Kumamoto, Japan, where production on a gigantic scale will see as many as 1800 motorcycles produced in a single day. The new 2012 Gold Wing brings upgraded styling along with a dazzling array of sophisticated electronic amenities including a next-generation GPS navigation system with user-friendly programmability for sharing favorite ride routes, which can be accessed online via computer, plus a built-in MP3/iPod® interface for the new SRS CS Auto™ technology surround-sound system. The 2012 Gold Wing also boasts increased luggage capacity, greater protection from wind and weather, revised suspension settings for enhanced ride compliance, and unparalleled comfort for both rider and passenger. In addition to its power-laden yet refined drivetrain and delightfully sporty handling, packages for ABS and airbag do much to further the Gold Wing’s reputation as the most celebrated touring machine in motorcycle history.2015 To celebrate 40 years of this incredible machine, all 2015 Gold Wing models come with special badging and embossed seats. Also, our two-tone Red/Black model features special blacked-out trim and all models get a redesigned front fascia and air intake, blacked-out headlight garnish and new instrument panel fonts Manufacturer: Honda......Model: Gold Wing GL1000, GL1000LTD, GL1000 StandardYears Made: 1975-1980 (- 1983 Australia)Luxury Tourer 999cc Boxer-FourSeat: mm/"Weight: 584+lbsHP: 78-84Torque: 76Top Speed: 120mphMPG: 40New Cost: $2,470 (1975) - $3,250 (1978) - $3,499 (1980) - $3,649 (1983)Average Used Costs:Low$1,678Medium$2,350High$2,800

But for more than three-and-a-half decades, the Gold Wing® has done much more than merely survive: This remarkable machine has continued to create and define an entire segment of the motorcycling experience, raising standards and expectations time and time again. The following timeline provides a glimpse into the many milestones that have made the Gold Wing the icon it is today. 1975 GL1000 GOLD WING The original Gold Wing was much, much more than just a new motorcycle. Powered by a revolutionary 999cc liquid-cooled horizontally opposed four-cylinder engine, the Gold Wing opened new possibilities never before considered by the experts in the enthusiast press, much less the consumer public in general. What to make of this open-class machine with world-class power and cross-country capabilities? Gold Wing customers took to the open road in droves, and helped inspire an industry-wide paradigm shift toward long-distance motorcycling. 1976 GL1000 GOLD WING LTD A new model marks the Gold Wing’s second year as Honda graces the GL1000 Limited Edition with an assortment of special features, including gold striping, special LTD sidecover badges, chromed radiator shroud and screen, quilt-patterned seat, plus gold wheels and spokes. 1979 With more than 80 percent of Gold Wing production being exported to North America, a vital need arose to build a production plant in the U.S. Although Honda had been building overseas plants for more than 25 years, the move to America in the 1970s was risky. To most consumers, Honda’s quality was its strongest selling point, and building in America could jeopardize this hard-earned reputation—not just for the Gold Wing, but for all Honda products for decades to come. Nevertheless, Honda forged ahead, and on September 10, 1979, the first Honda of America Manufacturing (HAM) plant begins production as a group of 64 associates completes the first 10 Honda motorcycles built in Marysville, Ohio. Within three months, Honda’s top managers had sufficient confidence in HAM’s capabilities to proceed with building an automobile plant in 1979—the first Japanese car builder to do so in the U.S. 1980 GL1100 GOLD WING Five years of continuous consumer input culminate in the introduction of the GL1100. More than a rehashed GL1000 with 10 percent greater displacement, the new Wing incorporates deliberately planned modifications that guide it away from the superbike realm and place it squarely into the touring category. The new 1085cc engine now favors torque rather than horsepower, a longer wheelbase provides more room for both pilot and passenger, and a new air-assisted suspension system gives the Gold Wing its most supple, comfortable ride to date. GL1100 GOLD WING INTERSTATE The GL1100 also introduced another innovation that was arguably more important than its mechanical changes. Since the Gold Wing’s long-distance prowess had inspired the creation of an entire aftermarket of bolt-on touring accessories, Honda’s engineers clearly envisioned a new direction toward a turnkey, fully dressed luxury machine. In 1980, the innovative Interstate fulfilled that vision as the first Gold Wing available fully equipped with factory-installed fairing, saddlebags and trunk, plus the option of a stereo sound system. Turnkey touring, Gold Wing style, is born. 1982 GL1100 GOLD WING ASPENCADE In quick succession, Honda introduces the concept of luxury touring with the Aspencade. Amenities abound in standard trim, including LCD instrumentation, stereo, CB, on-board air-compressor and thoughtful touches such as the handy storage pouches in the passenger backrest. At the same time, through the use of Redpages in its advertising, Honda underscores its technological edge. 1984 GL1200 GOLD WING ASPENCADE The GL1200 brought the Gold Wing to the outer limits of the four-cylinder engine’s performance and sophistication. The added power and torque of the larger 1182cc engine made the Gold Wing the king of its class in 1984, with a combination of smoothness and low-rpm acceleration that couldn’t be matched. The addition of hydraulic valve adjustment now made the Wing virtually maintenance-free. At the same time, chassis improvements made the big Wing feel amazingly agile, and open-road comfort was superlative. 1985 GL1200 LIMITED EDITION Honda marks the Wing’s 10th anniversary in two significant ways. First, with the Gold Wing so firmly entrenched within the touring realm, Honda decides to drop the standard, unfaired GL1200. Second, an ultra-luxurious Limited Edition arrives, complete with computerized fuel injection, four-speaker sound system, cruise control, auto-leveling rear suspension, a comprehensive electronic travel computer and special two-tone metallic gold paint. Following the success of its Marysville Motorcycle Plant, Honda constructs an engine plant in nearby Anna, Ohio, to build Gold Wing engines. Just as Marysville’s success paved the way for Honda’s auto manufacturing in America, the Anna Engine Plant moved from manufacturing GL engines alone to building powerplants for Civics and Accords. At Anna, all the casting, forging, machining and heat-treating processes necessary to turn raw materials into finished, sophisticated engines reside under one roof. As one associate proudly observes, “We do what seven Honda plants do in Japan.” 1988 GL1500 GOLD WING In 1984 a new design team began planning the next Wing. The new machine had to be superior in every aspect: extremely quiet and silky smooth, yet extremely powerful with superior handling. The GL1500 got there—the hard way. Thousands of hours were spent in testing 15 different machines in 60 prototype stages—the most comprehensive model development project in Honda’s history. These efforts culminated in a six-cylinder luxury motorcycle of such surpassing excellence it would establish a touring benchmark that would dominate motorcycling for more than a decade. 1993 The next-generation GL begins to take shape under the guidance of Masanori Aoki, a sportbike enthusiast who has already headed up development of high-performance bikes including the CBR250RR, CBR400RR and the CBR®600F3. “We set out to keep 80 percent of the Gold Wing’s touring capability,” Aoki said. But he also added, “My job is to add more fun factor, to build a Gold Wing with the kind of acceleration and handling people normally associate with sporting machines.” After considering flat-four, flat-six and flat-eight engine configurations and displacements up to 2000cc, customer response overwhelmingly points to a flat-six of about 1800cc displacement. In 1998, a full-scale model is created. 1996 The one-millionth Honda motorcycle made in America rolls off the Marysville assembly line. Appropriately enough, the millionth model is a Gold Wing; this commemoration is altogether fitting, since the success of the Gold Wing and that of Honda in America are inextricably intertwined. 2000 In January 2000, the Marysville Motorcycle Plant is thoroughly redesigned to build the new Gold Wing. As part of this process, the engine production line is transferred from Anna to Marysville to facilitate the new Gold Wing production. The Gold Wing’s new era officially begins when the first complete GL1800 rolls off the Marysville assembly line on October 10, 2000. 2001 GL1800 GOLD WING The word “new” cannot do justice to the GL1800. Two numbers alone tell a big story: 118 bhp and 125 lb./ft. of torque. Don’t try to find other bikes that compare, because there aren’t any. In terms of power, the new Gold Wing is literally in a class of one. Likewise, the list of long-legged mounts offering a box-section aluminum frame begins with the word “Gold” and ends with “Wing.” And that’s only the beginning. Before the GL1800 was completed, Honda would patent no less than 20 technological innovations that were incorporated into this amazing high-performance luxury motorcycle. 2005 GL1800 GOLD WING The 30th anniversary Gold Wing comes in a slew of colors, including Pearl Yellow, White, Metallic Silver, Dark Gray Metallic, Bright Blue Metallic and Candy Black Cherry. Special 30th anniversary color-matched badging on the front fairing, rear trunk and dash cover also distinguish the ’05 model, as does a 30th anniversary color-matched key, 30th anniversary opening ceremony on the LCD display, and unique carbon-fiber seat pattern on pearl yellow and metallic silver colors. To date, more than 500,000 Gold Wings have been produced. 2006 GL1800 GOLD WING In 2006, the most potent Gold Wing ever produced now elevates luxury motorcycling to unprecedented highs. A six-speaker premium audio system with 80 watts per channel comes standard on every new GL1800, and riders may also opt for a satellite navigation system with color screen, a Cold-Weather Comfort Package and an industry-first fully integrated motorcycle airbag. 2012 Manufacture of the Gold Wing shifts to the ultra-modern facility in Kumamoto, Japan, where production on a gigantic scale will see as many as 1800 motorcycles produced in a single day. The new 2012 Gold Wing brings upgraded styling along with a dazzling array of sophisticated electronic amenities including a next-generation GPS navigation system with user-friendly programmability for sharing favorite ride routes, which can be accessed online via computer, plus a built-in MP3/iPod® interface for the new SRS CS Auto™ technology surround-sound system. The 2012 Gold Wing also boasts increased luggage capacity, greater protection from wind and weather, revised suspension settings for enhanced ride compliance, and unparalleled comfort for both rider and passenger. In addition to its power-laden yet refined drivetrain and delightfully sporty handling, packages for ABS and airbag do much to further the Gold Wing’s reputation as the most celebrated touring machine in motorcycle history.2015 To celebrate 40 years of this incredible machine, all 2015 Gold Wing models come with special badging and embossed seats. Also, our two-tone Red/Black model features special blacked-out trim and all models get a redesigned front fascia and air intake, blacked-out headlight garnish and new instrument panel fonts Manufacturer: Honda......Model: Gold Wing GL1000, GL1000LTD, GL1000 StandardYears Made: 1975-1980 (- 1983 Australia)Luxury Tourer 999cc Boxer-FourSeat: mm/"Weight: 584+lbsHP: 78-84Torque: 76Top Speed: 120mphMPG: 40New Cost: $2,470 (1975) - $3,250 (1978) - $3,499 (1980) - $3,649 (1983)Average Used Costs:Low$1,678Medium$2,350High$2,800
