It is free. You must come and get it. I am doing this because I am hoping to help someone that has been down on their luck and would like a nice ride. It is far from perfect it is in fact a little beat up to some, but runs good and has had ALL of the maintenance done to it. Will I stalk you to make sure you are down on your luck, nope. I tried selling this and got a lot of lookers but most are afraid of a 42/43 year old bike. One guy wanted it but he was short and I recommended to him not to lower it due to the boxer engine. I need the room, that is my driving force of this give away. I love my Blackbird and have always really really really loved that seating and will dedicate to that bike since I no longer am home everyday. something has to be rode and there is always maintenance needed and would rather not spend my limited time working on 2 bikes and less riding.

First come will be the first to have it. Do I care if you re-sale it? No not really. I listed it and sat several days waiting for people that never came, instead of riding and even once took it 2.5 hours to a wank that could not ride it.

There are some extra heads and other parts but non of the chrome or trunks as they are already gone. The bike comes naked, and ready to ride.

The title will be signed and dated, you will need to get it inspected and title and tagged where ever you do it. I will provide a receipt that I gave it to you.

Wow! Nice looking old 'Wing! If I didn't already have two bikes, I'd be PM'ing you right now. I'd hitch the trailer to the truck and be on my way today, ah, well, this weekend, got to watch the grand kids for a while today.

I also think what you are doing, trying to help someone else out like you are, is admirable. Hope you find the right person.

Awesome! A post like this is precisely how I ended up with a free gray market car. I hope the new owner loves it! Your GL1000 is easily the best looking winger of that vintage I've seen in...maybe ever?

Parked for the night so I can, do tell.

The former owner of it got a call via the Classic GoldWing sight and he called me literally only minutes after posting. His brother got it for him, even though he is in Florida. He said he has missed it ever since he heard it run after me getting it back to Indiana.

So there's going to be a reunion!

I have often thought about bikes and cars I have owned in the past and wished I had them back again. Glad that its happening for someone.

I have a '76 that is missing a few parts. The PO took off the speedo gear from the right head and lost it. So i guess any spare parts you may have , I would be interested to know about.

The old naked ones are special in a lot of ways. I live close to Richmond IN, so I could probably drive out there, or even meet you if you are running east on I-70.....

First off I wanted to say that is really cool of you to do something like that.
Secondly, I want to say "dang it!" I came too late.
Granted I am new to the bike world but looked like a great 1st bike for a big guy like me.
I also live in Indiana too.
I hope a new rider got it.🤣😂
Can't beat free specially for a new rider.
I know its gone but I just wanted to give you props for doing something awesome.
Specially considering the times we live in.
Have a wonderful day and a better tomorrow!
Stay safe and be blessed!👊✌
