1976 Honda Gold Wing GL1000, 999cc. Registration number MAU 606P. Frame number GL1-2002389. Engine number GL1E-2002756.
The Gold Wing was introduced in 1976 it 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. It 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.
MAU was owned by Ray Castledine in 1994 before passing to Peter Hill in 2001. It would appear to have been last MOT'd in 2012 at 46,491 miles, today the odometer shows much the same mileage.
Sold with the V5C it will require recommissioning.
