Restoration by a Dutch member of Naked Goldwing Club.

.
Today the restauration of my GL1000 K1 became finished for 99,5%; radiatorwings to be treated, carb's to be adjusted and some minor work to be done.
Made my maiden trip this afternoon to the gasstation, 7 mls v.v; she was running excellent; it is a very impressing experience after all those years.
The K1 is 40 years old and has 10.600 mls on the odo; 37 years of ownership of which the last 32 years stored in my garage under a selfmade plane...........my age was 35 when I purchased her, next month I hope to be 72 years old.
The restauration lasted 11 months in which I did spent approx. 750 hours of labour and a couple of thousand dollars for motorparts, paint, polishing, new set of tires, SS spokes, etc, etc.........the engine and frame were spraypainted and all tubes were treatad from the inside with an anticorrosion-protection (400 ml of stuff); the coloured panels still have the original paint as supplied by the factory.

Regards, Ruud

Mix a Yamaha frame, honda forktubes and a 1600 VW engine and you get this.

Just for fun you build a sidecar as well.

Back in the 70's The Amazonas were built in Brazil with VW 1600 motors.

Initially for military and police use, but later for the public as well.

Thanks for posting. Classic old bikes seem to be also in demand these days.

I will post a pic of my 1989 Yamaha 1100 Virago. It is in very good condition,like new to be honest,
