1977 Honda Goldwing GL1000
Owner: M. McInerney of Washington, DC
COMMENTS:  The owner purchased this Goldwing in 2006.  It was brought to us after the owner attempted to correct several mechancial issues.  One repair by the owner was rebuilding the carburetors.  A good attempt was made, but running & idling issues remained along with synchronizing the carbs & setting the timing.  After we repaired the carbs, the bike ran but had a tapping noise coming from the engine.  The noise was caused by worn/damaged connecting rod bearings located in the bottom end of the engine. We rebuilt the engine by replacing the connecting rod, bearings, and piston rings.  While in the engine, the transmission was inspected & found to be fine condition.  We also installed new front & rear tires, new rear shocks, upgraded it to a Dyna S electronic ignition, repaired the reserve setting on the petcock, replaced a torn water pump seal, and changed the leaky fork seals & fluid. No cosmetic work was performed on the bike or engine.  This major service took 3 months and 33 hours of labor.  Now our customer has a safe, reliable, classic Goldwing that can bring him many years of riding pleasure.
