I was out looking on Craigslist and ran across an '85 Goldwing 1200 Interstate for sale for $1000.00. I assumed that it was a piece of junk, but decided to go see it anyway. I was surprised to find that it was in very good shape with only 45k miles, but it had a problem with the charging system.
I decided to by it anyway and found out that the stator (alternator) was the problem. I plan to do the Poorboy Alternator Conversion this weekend and start my restoration project.
Here's a pic of how it looked when I brought it home:
