Honda GL1100 specs

#1 Unread post by Goose83 »

I was checking on the spec page for the 1983 Honda GL1100 Gold Wing and I saw that your specs were a bit out of line.The tire sizes you have are not for a 1983 but for the 1980 to 1982 GL1100s.In 1983 they changed the tire and rim size from the Comstar wheels that were 17inch rear and 19inch front to the 11 spoke one piece aluminum rims with 16inch rear and 18inch front.Also you have the bike weighing I believe you said 586 pounds dry but the true weight of a 1983 Honda GL1100 Interstate is in fact 740 pounds wet which puts it at a touch over 700 pounds dry.

Thanks for bringing this up, with over 10000 bikes on Total Motorcycle I'm bound to make a mistake or two in the specs sometimes as I hand-type them all in.

I'll have that changed up shortly.
