GL1000 ROCKER COVER EMBLEMS

Postby Old Fogey » Fri Nov 16, 2012 9:21 am



We have now got a supplier of the elusive GL1000 rocker cover emblems. As owners of these models will already be aware, it has been almost impossible to find NOS OEM (no, it has been totally impossible!) but I needed a pair for the brand new engine I'm building.
After spending near two days on the internet I have now found a supply of replicas and we have a few pieces on their way for evaluation.
The initial find was the black background version, but I have corresponded with the supplier and he is willing to make the '75 year only' blue ones as well.
BUT..... I need a real good picture or preferably a real good sample (some hope of that! :roll: ) of one of these to get the colour right. We think it is almost the same as the candy sapphire blue but without being candy or metallic.
Can anyone help me with this?

Anyone wanting emblems in either colour, let me know by PM. I will post the results of our evaluation as soon as we receive them, along with a price.

'Impossible' is just a level of difficulty! The only stupid question is the one you didn't ask first!

A quick update on this.

I received the emblems, after they had been sent to Doug first. he wouldn't comment on them until I had seen them!
Well, long and short of it was, I wasted my money! The quality was poor, the main material seemed to be solder! And they had weird fixings.
Back to the drawing board!
