First thing. if you are viewing this ad from a phone. please take time to view from a computer with a decent size screen.   The bike deserves it.   This is a very nice example of a customized Goldwing. 1987 GL1200 Goldwing Interstate model.   Now customized as the War Bird.   Bike was always kept in service up until the time of transformation.   Last mechanical service was the usual oil. filter and plugs.   Also. timing belts were replaced.   This bike is serious.   Back in 2002. I bought a new Bandit 1200 and had the shop re-jet and install a Yoshimura pipe.   I would say that this Goldwing matches its power exactly. and I believe it would also have an advantage on top end.   Bike has been pared down to a scant 484 lbs. . which means fun and fast.   I don't mean to overplay the performance. but when considering a stock Goldwing over this one. the fun factor far exceeds a stock Goldwing's original performance.   I have included in pics some other Goldwings that I have customized.   They were all done around the same idea of less weight. more horsepower.   This Goldwing has many upgraded bits that you would appreciate.   Vintage styled headlight with high/low beam.   Horn is new replacement.   It is mounted up front. hidden from view. but not blocked as to affect the decibel output.   Both levers and perches are new hydraulic with 1 thru 6 adjusters.   Both are set on 4.   Feels very comfortable. but that is an individual's determination.   Tires are Dunlop sport/touring.   Front is a 130. which used to be the size for the rear on the older Goldwings. and rear is a fat 170.   That is the absolute biggest tire I could fit.   Looks very good from the back.   Bike has many electrical upgrades.   Also running a K&N air filter.   Valve covers have been shaved and painted with a durable texture coat.   Running vintage aftermarket plug wires with new NGK caps.   Solo seat is new replacement.   Front forks are air driven.   Rear shocks are air assist with S&W springs.   Very nice set-up.   Currently running 15 psi up front and 20 psi in the back.   Is working out very good for around town riding.   New War Bird tail light with pulsating brake light.   Ignition is mounted to the left of the bike. as seen in one of the pics.   It is of the car type.   Just turn the key to start. and release.   Also. near the key to the left is the air inlet for the rear shocks.   It has a Magnum tumbler cover.   Front fork air valves are individual.   Gas tank is painted with a matte black and orange.   War Bird emblem is vinyl.   Can be left as is or easily taken off.   Pretty much. as you can see. there has been a lot of time and attention to detail.   Not a show bike.   Never meant to be.   Just looks good. I'm sure there are some details that I may have missed.   If you have any questions. please feel free to ask.    COMES WITH CLEAR TITLE AND SIGNED BILL OF SALE.     Winning bidder has 30 days to arrange pick-up.   If new owner needs more time. please contact us.   We will easily work something out.   Bike will be stored safely indoors.
