I'm searching for vetter side bags for my 1978 GL1000. Someone nearby has a set from a 1978 Suzuki with mounting hardware. Will they fit? I'm assuming the mounting bracket will be incorrect for my bike. The side bags alone look to be right.

My understanding (limited?) is that they only made one 'model' of bags, with specific brackets built for various bikes. Your guess about compatibility is probably true, but you would have two options: Modify them to fit your scoot, or shop for brackets. They should be available without bags, seeing as how over the years "stuff happens" and salvage yards, ebayers, etc no doubt have lost, sold or wrecked one or both bags but still have the mounts.
