81 Goldwing upgrades

Postby sgtswug » Mon Nov 04, 2013 8:04 am



I have an 81 GW Interstate. Previous owner rolled it so plastic is cracked or missing and I am finding replacement is almost as expensive as my bike was. It is maintained well but looks like three tours to Iraq. I guess I have three questions: :?:
1) Is there an affordable way to replace missing or broken fairings and luggage?
2) I want to replace the radio and or add CB :geek: . Do I need to ramp up the power all over the bike?
3) The seat is worn out, do seats from other models work on the 81?

Thanks
Brent

I have a complete Fairing that I was going to list on ebay.
I was going to start it at $100 and see where it went, but if you want it we could work somnething out.
I can send pics if you want. I believe it is the wineberry color.

Andy,
That would be great if you had pics. Right now I have some parts painted camo to hide the fact it isn't ready for a real paint job yet. Once I have all the plastic replaced it gets painted for real.
Thanks Brent
