So I have three GL1000's. A 76, 77, and a 78. I got them cheap and will be projects for me and my two sons in the future (they are 2 and 8 weeks old right now). I have started doing them up...getting them running right before changing/improving the aesthetics. All were "barn finds" and in pretty rough condition.
The 78 have the side covers (that cover the battery) but are cracked and/or missing tabs.
I don't have the side covers (that cover the battery) for the 77.
Other than finding old parts that are as equally bad quality what are my options?...Does anybody know of anywhere that makes these aftermarket in metal?
I love my wings (both Hot and Gold) - check out my blog @ http://wingthing1000.blogspot.com/
