If you have been looking at Gold Wings, you already know that $9200 certified is a screaming deal for a 2005 - it is the lowest price on all of Kijiji Ontario for the year and even lower than most Gl1800 Wings right back to 2001! Unsurprisingly, there are both good points and bad points so read on.
It has a list of options added:
- heated grips
- wings on the sides of the windshield
- airflow port in the windshield
- driver's backrest
- rear speakers
- trailer hitch (used for a cooler deck, not a trailer)
- chrome trunk rack
- trunk wing with integrated brake light
- highway pegs
- driving/fog lights
Though 139 000km is not low, the majority of these km are highway (loooong bike trips) and you can easily ride this Wing for another 300 000km!
The Dunlop Elite 3 tires have oodles of tread as they have not travelled many km. Both recalls have been completed.
The bad - it is all cosmetics. In fact, 8 of the 10 photos illustrate cosmetic issues. If you are looking for a pristine bike, this Wing will be a disappointment so don't even waste your time on it - skip directly to the Wings for $14000 and up.
The previous owner blacked out some trim himself. He also did some messy "touch-up". There is a wear spot in the paint on the gas tank, the lower half of both bags are marked and the trunk has some issues as well. One involves what I think might be textured truck bed spray(!) and the other is that the lid has worn off both the finish and undercoat on the rim of the lower half. The front seat has had repairs to 2 seams and it has two small splits in the covering material; it should be recovered at some point, probably sooner than later.
The finish on the valve covers is not good anymore; they should be repainted. Some of the chrome has corrosion, so it doesn't look as good as it once did (the trunk rack and rider backrest in particular).
The windshield is cloudy in the center.
I am trying to give you an accurate picture so that you don't have unrealistic expectations when you come see the Wing.
If you are thinking of offering me less than $9000, I'm sorry but this Wing simply is not for you. I hope I phrased that politely enough...
