Default Salvage Yards

Any of you guys roam through Motorcycle Salvage Yards?

If you do how about taking some note if you come up on the early model GL 1000 Gold Wing.
The 75-77 were identical, color being the only difference.
78-79 there was a body change but actual "hard parts" were all the same.

Online microfiche no longer show 75,76 year models and we are running into "No Longer Available" from 77-79.

Critical parts, the parts that will park them if you can't find them, are starting to be a serious issue.
Something as critical as Pin A & Pin B for the front brake calipers to simple as a Clutch Lever and it's Pivot Bolt are no longer available.
eBay has been picked through to the point that only the worst of the worst is available.
We adapt this and that where we can but some of this stuff requires you manufacture replacements.

If you roam keep a eye out will ya.

Hi Paul,

There is this, but it's in Mexico...and both bikes are listed as running....however current exchange rate works in your favor and may not be a bad deal:

I think most of these salvage yards are "hot-lined" to each other. You can put a request in with one yard and any yard networked can see the request and respond.

I think you a right and for a lot of parts exact year is not and issue.
There are shuttle differences that can be adjusted for but one problem I've run into in the past is for many the first one the see is the last one the look for.

I miss Bob's in Phoenix. You need to pack a lunch to properly roam.

It's starting to look as if Europe and the UK in particular is where "the good stuff resides". A bit out of the way to roam but they have some pretty good pictures and know their salvage better than most.

And a large brimmed hat.

A full parts bike could be the answer. My Bro in Law is a vintage 914 fan and has 4 parts cars in his yard If your significant other approves
