This Honda Goldwing is from 1975, the first year of production. This bike is now a mainstay in the motorcycle world, with over one million in sales since its inception. The bike has become somewhat of a touring behemoth in recent years, with a flat six engine, cruise control, reverse gear and even an optional airbag. But when it was introduced, it was a lovely naked bike that was billed as a touring machine, even though it came without fairings or luggage. I have to admit, we’re huge suckers for the naked Gold Wings – these bikes are absolutely beauties in our eyes.
The aftermarket soon came to the rescue, particularly the Vetter company, which made fairings for the Honda Goldwing and many 70s BMWs. The Honda Goldwing was pretty much the same from 1975 to 1977 – many changes were introduced for the 1978 model year. Honda sold 13,000 Goldwings in the first year – many have been lost to time and accidents, so this is not a common motorcycle.
This specific Honda Goldwing has approximately 27K miles, and is in great shape for a 38 year old bike. The owner has recently replaced the tires, cam belts, hoses & brake pads.
