Saddlebag lid interchange with different models

Postby oristorob » Tue Apr 15, 2014 9:01 am



Does anyone know if saddle bag lids from a 1982 aspencade will fit a 1981 interstate. My bike came with homemade lids that looked decent but I lost one while riding this weekend and now I'm on the prowl for replacement lids. Ebay has two that came off a 1982 aspencade but I'm not sure they will fit. Thanks for any help.

If you find the stripping it will be expensive as it is rare to find.
Most just take theirs to the hardware store and find something similar.
and others have gone to the junkyard and found some that comes close from door / window stripping.
