This 1975 Honda GL1000 Gold Wing is powered by a water-cooled 999cc opposed four-cylinder paired with a five-speed transmission, and was refurbished with new Candy Blue Green paint under previous ownership. The bike reportedly spent time in Denver, Colorado before being acquired from an Arizona collector two years ago by the selling dealer. Subsequent work included a general inspection as well as replacement of the starter and battery, and approximately 230 miles have since been ridden. This Gold Wing is offered at no reserve in California with a clean Arizona title.

The water-cooled 999cc SOHC flat-four is fed by four 32mm Keihin carburetors and was factory-rated at 80 horsepower. Features include belt-driven camshafts, a gear-driven alternator that counter-rotates to offset the engine’s torque reaction, and a removable kick starter. The five-speed transmission is mounted below the engine and transfers power to the rear wheel via a shaft drive. A general inspection was carried out in 2017 along with replacement of the electric starter and battery.
