85 GL1200 plastics and computer up for grabs

Postby cpbernard » Fri Mar 18, 2016 1:17 pm



I have just begun an ambitious custom build with my 85ltd. I purchased the bike a couple of years ago with the intent to get her back up and running. After lots of tinkering i decided to have a look under the heads. I found a large crack between the cylinders on the left side. The motor was beyond help. I was completely disappointed. I spent the last couple years going back and forth about sourcing another engine and starting over. I have decided to take her down to the frame and build something completely custom. A real one of a kind. Anyway, back to the point at hand. I will not be using most of her plastic, wire harness, computer, etc.... I live in Texas City TX. Let me know if there is anything that I might have that you might need.

I the engine is toast, I'd be interested in the TPS. Cheers

Thought of 2 more items. The small brown pieces that cover the front of the false tank after it is installed. Cheers

So, my 85 ltd has those aluminum 2 piece handlebars. I will not be putting the front plastics back on and would like to put a set of traditional 1 inch or 7/8 bars on. Anyone know if there is an adapter,bracket, gizmo,... to make that happen. Or am i just going to have to fab something.
To update the project.. I am putting a gl1500 into the 85 frame. I have stretched the engine compartment by 4 inches and will be creating headroom as needed once the engine and carbs arrive.
