This website is made to
give the Goldwing fan information about his own great motorbike,
including all the spin-offs from that motorcycle as for instance
the Honda Rune, the Goldwing F6B and the Goldwing F6C
to keep this website as actual as possible, depending on the information
that comes available through any source.
The Goldwing history
goes back more then 38 years starting with the GL 1000, Introduced at
Germany's Cologne show in October of 1974. In those days a
real sensation. Followed by several
other models also to be found here on this website i.e. GL 1100, GL
1200, GL 1500 and the last one the GL 1800. There is also
information about the F6B and F6C
I am starting with the
bike I own myself, the GL 1500 but there is also a lot of information to
find on this website of the older and later models, if you have more info for me
feel free to
me, and i will place it on this website.
Introduction to the Honda
GL 1500 Gold Wing.
GL 1500 Gold Wing was Honda's top of the line touring bike from 1988 to
In 2001 the GL 1800
Gold Wing was introduced.
Engine on all GL 1500 models is a liquid cooled, horizontally opposed six cylinder
1520 cc with single overhead camshafts and hydraulically operated lifters.
Fuel is delivered to two down-draft CV carburetors by an electric fuel pump.
front suspension uses a pair of conventional damper rod forks with an
anti-dive device built in.
rear suspension uses a pair of air-adjustable shock absorbers and a
swing-arm, with an optional onboard compressor system to adjust the
air-pressure in the shocks. Final drive is by a shaft.
front brakes uses dual disc and the rear brake uses a single disc, the front
and rear brakes are interlinked; the brake pedal operates the front left

right front brake is operated by the lever on the right handlebar
independently of the rear and left front brake. I hope you will enjoy this
