    The same week that I got my Yamaha Virago, my friend got this 1985 Goldwing 1200 Aspencade. Difference is, the Goldwing doesn't run :???: We're tearing it down now to fix the rusted gas tank and rebuild the 4 carburetors this bike has.

    Hauled it back in the worst way possible :lol:

    Got it to my house and off the trailer. Got the carbs out and just generally cleaned, after which the bike would run from an external gas can, but it wouldn't idle.

    Cleaning the carbs.

    Powder coated the battery retainer.

    Had a shop clean and reseal the gas tank, but they did a piss poor job of it :|

    Now the bike is sitting half torn apart in our new work area. We're waiting on a real carb rebuild kit to arrive and see how that goes.

    The starter was shot.

    Spent today working on the bike with @traza42. We got more of the rear frame reassembled and I polished of some corrosion on the chrome bits.

    I also applied some leather product to the seats and rests.

    @traza42 got the new starter wired in:

    And the bike is looking pretty good!

    Next up he needs to finish fixing the bad wiring spots for lights and accessories, and then we need to pull the four carbs and use his rebuild kit on them.

    Well... We got the carbs rebuilt and installed, but the engine still doesn't want to run.

    Traza cleaned up some wiring:

    Looks good!

    Rebuilding the carbs:

    There was a tear in one of the diaphrams.. Those suckers are expensive so we just RTV'ed it back together.

    Engine still bogs down, with a misfire on one cylinder. We took a peek under the valve cover:

    Looks pretty clean. Compression test shows ~110psi on the cylinders, with none of them totally out of whack...

    Next step is really up to traza, we might be servicing the valves, idk.
