75-79 Front Brake Calipers

Will the front brake calipers interchange on a 75 and a 79 wing. I can get rebuild kits for the 79 but not i cant find a listing for the 75. Also will the crash bars off of a 80-83 wing mount the same as a 75 model?

The crash bar should fit with no problems. The 78-9 calipers will fit if you shim them out a bit with some washers. I went this route with my 76 some years ago as I had a set of freshly rebuilt 78 calipers and just decided to use them.
