1976 Honda GL1000 Gold Wing
Registration no. NGO 23P
Frame no. GL1-2012443
Engine no. GL1E-2012656
In a world grown accustomed to the excesses of decadence on all fronts, it is hard to imagine the mixture of awe and disbelief that greeted the Honda Gold Wing on its arrival in 1974. Given the mind-boggling specification: 1,000cc flat-four engine, water cooling, belt-driven overhead camshafts, shaft drive, triple disc brakes, etc, it was certainly complex if not, strictly speaking, that advanced. Representing the increasingly collectible GL1000 in its original and purest form, this example was purchased new from Ryes of Fulham by the current owner and comes with the original sales invoice. The machine has been used for long-distance touring in Europe and currently displays a total of 41,149 miles on the odometer. Offered for restoration, it comes with a quantity of expired MoTs, two old-style V5 documents, top box and fairing.
