Z was first to purchase his beast, a 1980 Honda Goldwing GL1100. This monster is non-running at the moment, but only has 25k on it and looks like a great platform to build off of. He’s into it $820 so far and will need electric and carb work as well as a new saddle. Can’t wait to hear this straight piped Goliath roar.
Epic Trek 2015 Flight of the Oldwings will have some different rules than previous Epic Treks. The Oldwing must be from the ’80s (or earlier) and road legal and registered for no more than $2015. On this Trek we will earn our iron butt awards, so these beasts will have to be reliable. Rough plan is to ride east through the southern states then up the east coast and back to UT through the north. Might have to take a full 7 days.
Uh, one more rule, we each must purchase a sweet (hideous) vintage Goldwing belt buckle to go with our bike and must proudly wear said buckle for the entire trek (okay, maybe that’s not critical).
