thank you joe
the wing is an 1100, looking at the wheels it's an '80 - '82 interstate. the other is a cb750 Honda '74 or earlier

I like that blue color.

Interesting interpretation of the Gold Wing's history there. They did come out in '75, in standard form, and the first factory dresser was the '80 Interstate. Don't know about that wobble part, but I know my '80 had a fairly good sized cast iron weight attached to the front forks behind the fairing where the headlight would have been mounted on a standard. Can only guess it was there to control that "wobble" they mention.

I'm pretty much retired from the forum thing, but I check in every now and then.

if you get up about 80 - 85mph the front starts to lift so the weight was added to address this. my 1200 wing doesn't have that problem ( neither does my 1500 wing ), I guess Honda figured it out by '84. if you have a wing with a vetter fairing it has the same high speed wobble. from 1980 until 2010 all goldwings were made in ohio

Marysville, to be specific. I may not know two wheels, but I know Ohio manufactures.

Garage:
MTD....2 stage(modern 8.5 HP) not my favorite
Honda HS622 TA-B - acquired at an auction- nice machine for it's size.
Toro S-140- Picked it up on trash day... it runs, sort of.
Yamaha YS 240 TB "Ricky" latest Craigslist find- on the bench now.

Honda also worked with local vendors to supply parts like mufflers

Guess I never got up to the wobble speed to find out.

I miss my GL1200I. I always thought it handled better than my GL1500SE did.

My daughter and I would take a trip every summer on the Wing. We went to the Homecoming in Marysville one year, toured the plant and went on some test rides of different bikes, including a VFR and a Helix just to cover the whole spectrum of bikes. I was impressed by how clean the factory was and how friendly all the associates were along the assembly line. There was a really tall fellow at the end of the assembly line that would take the new Wing and run it through a battery of tests. Then wheel it off to the side to be crated up for shipping. It was fun watching him put the bike up on the center stand without getting off of the seat, he was that tall! A few weeks later we toured the Ertle toy factory in Dyersville, IA. Not so clean, not so friendly, and very disappointing.

Great times.
