Passenger Handholds for 82 GL-1100

Postby cal3san » Tue Oct 18, 2011 8:31 pm



Around the time I acquired my 1100 (June 11) I saw a picture of a 1100 which had a set of passsenger handholds which stuck out from under the passenger seat. Since then I've not been able to find the handholds again.

Can anyone point me a direction where I can find one?

If this is a naked GL you're talking about, factory grab rails are real rare and pricey. Good luck finding one! A dressed one is another story. Someone here should be of more use than me in that area.

Not all THAT rare. I've got one selling on eBay right now: Honda Goldwing GL1100 Passenger Grab Rail

Are you saying I should be asking more for it? :)

Thanks for the info guys but the hand holds/grabs/rails are, basically, a metal plate with two loops on oppositie ends.

The plate fits under the seat where it is bolted in place and the loops are exposed for passenger use when the seat is re-installed.

The stockhand holds/grabs/rails made for a stock GL-1100 WILL NOT fit a triked out GL-1100.

Guess I'll have one made.
