    I have two 5-gallon cans of unleaded regular gasoline to which some
    100-octane leaded aviation gasoline was mistakenly mixed in.

    Any problem burning those in my 1989 Gold Wing GL1500? Anything in
    the engine or accessories that could be damaged by a little lead?

    Your Wing will probably LIKE it!

    The only thing lead in fuel will damage would be a catalytic
    converter, and your '89 certainly won't have one of those.
