Everyone has heard of barn finds and we know what those can look like, but I’ve noticed a lot of “museum finds” showing up for sale lately. Lots of guys who have continually added motorcycles to their personal collections or personal museums are getting to the age where they would like to slowly sell them off. This GL1000 is a beautiful example, it’s a 1977 Gold Wing with 51 miles! I know we saw those Nortons in a crate a few weeks ago, which is the ultimate low mileage find, but 51 miles on a 1977 motorcycle is close to the same thing.
As we’ve noted many times, these original naked wings are pretty popular and there’s a lot of support for them, too. Randakk’s Cycle Shakk has lots of accessories, updates and hard to find parts for these old wings, and there are similar companies for other old but popular models.
You could buy a bike like this and enjoy a great ride, keep it in your own collection or even do a few carefully chosen modifications, but once you have something like this, you might be hard pressed to make very many changes. It just looks so nice. Yep, very cool!
