As I recall the seat from a naked will bolt right up,so yes as long as you stay in the same model.
I think,for example that the seat from my 81 naked will bolt right to the 83 interstate.

Teh only "normal" FLAT seats were on the GL1000's and they do not bolt right up..can be changed to fit..with new mounting hardware..but ALL 1100's had "king/queen " seats not the big ones but just a slight rise to the back. Ou can fairly easily cut down a OEM seat and recover to get a flat seat.
HAD LOTS OF GOLDWING 75-83
NOW INTO 1500'S..RIDING A 1998 SE

FAIR WINDS,
RB
