trailer hitch install - '81 1100 (pt 2)

Post by mxwllslvrhmr » Fri Nov 01, 2013 12:00 pm

Looking to install a different trailer hitch. The one I originally ordered was meant for Interstate/Aspencade models. My GL1100 is the standard model fitted with Samsonite hard top and side bags.

The second trailer hitch info says that this hitch will fit the standard model GL1000. The item description mentions it will fit GL 1100's also. The vendor says he's not in fact sure this hitch will fit on 1100's.

Just wondering, all things considered - are the rear frame dimensions (attach points, etc.) of GL1000's and 1100's the same? . . I'm ok with doing some modification to the hitch if need be.
