There’s now a slight change of plan to the recommissioning of the 1977 Honda GL1000 Goldwing project, it’s going to need a complete engine rebuild.

The bike has been getting recommissioned but after its first full test and run-up, it’s been found there’s damage to the engine. It’s believed to just be the pistons but for this classic motorcycle to be in the best health, it will have a full engine rebuild and be gone through meticulously.

As you can see, it looks as though it’s just the pistons and rings which have notable damage but with such an iconic and important part of motorcycle history, we want to make sure it is all 100% ok.

Expect to see more on the rebuild of the 1977 Honda GL1000 Goldwing soon on the Bridge Classic Cars news page.
