Postby Mpoddubsky » Tue Apr 13, 2010 4:32 pm



Hey guys, thanks for taking the time to read this. First off, I want to buy a new fairing for my bike but i can't seem to find one anywhere. The one i have is too far off to repair. Second, I have seen many vids and pics out there with these fairings with add-on's Where can i find all of this stuff? Please help or point me to the right thread. Thanks your time is greatly appreciated..

Mike.

My suggestion is to keep an eye on the for sale sections on the Goldwing forums, ebay, and craigslist. I presume this is a fairing for an 1100 you are asking about. Since they're now about thirty years old you are stuck with finding second hand accessories. There is one vendor out there that sells new stuff for them but I'd suggest you read the reviews before dealing with them.

Not mine, but I'm looking at the armrests on Thursday. Anything you'd like me to check out?

I bought a lot of Gold Wing parts yesterday. They came off of a '81 GL1100. Included was a Vetter fairing with radio, and the mount for a 1100. Windshield itself is quite good. Drop me a note at winter@ccilink.net and I can send pictures of the fairing if you'd be interested.

Five....If the right side saddlebag lid is good I'd be interested, providing you would be willing to be a middleman and ship it? Below is my cell # and e-mail address. Thanks

I'll check it out. What's your max price, including shipping so I'll know for negotiation purposes?

I recently bought a 1100 with vetter front fairing, trunk, and hard saddle bags... Since I am stripping the bike I will be selling them. I am not sure what the going rate is but, with a little research i am sure we could settle on something. I am in South Dakota. Let me know

One hang up, I don't have the keys for opening any of the compartments. I am not sure how hard it will be to find new locks or how much that will cost either.

Well..PM me I have some of all of it..fairing, bags, lids, lower fairings, headlights, turn signals etc. etc. One note shipping the big stuff is $$$$$. Tell me what you want and I'll give you a price. Note most of my stuff is black.

To go naked you need ears, headlight, turn signals..OEM is hard to find but aftermarkets will work and easier to pick up..JC has it and do many others.
