Newbie with 83 GL1100A clutch issues

Post by sleepjh » Mon Apr 28, 2014 2:15 pm

I recently bought my first street bike, a 83 Goldwing Aspencade with 95000 miles for $1900. Before selling, the previous owner had replaced the timing belts, tensioners, and had new tires put on the bike. It starts right up and drove great except a feeling of a flat tire especially when going around corners. I am changing the swing arm and wheel bearings and figured I would change the clutch friction disk considering the miles. Well, everything looked great except the center clutch hub and basket which have cracks in them as can be seen in the pics. I would just get new parts but can not find any. Does anyone know where new ones can be found? Or is this somewhat normal and are my parts are ok to reinstall? Thanks in advance.

I'd tend to be the one to replace it.Even a used one without cracks.
Maybe post a WANTED add on this site.
