Finding parts

Post by Chuckgnh » Sat Aug 01, 2015 8:24 am

It's about time I got on this forum! Hi all - so I've got a nice '83 Aspencade that I love. Just lost the right saddlebag cover blowing down the highway - well, I found it, but it had a severe case of rash and breakage. Parts seem hard to come by - no luck with salvage, so far - I'm not "made" of money (anyone here?).

a.) Any recommendations on how to find a replacement (burgundy would help, since I don't need to paint the bike)?
b.) Should I even be tempted to buy a nice same year bike I'm seeing on Craigslist, and saving some parts of this bike and parting it out? It looks like parting out could literally pay for most of another bike. No doubt a pain in the neck, takes up space, etc. Wondering how any of you have found that experience. No, I don't want an instant junkyard, but I do have a '73 CB750 that I need to put some work into, also. Or just consolidate everything.......

Opinions????? Thanks!

Stuff like that pops up on Ebay from time to time. Even though I really don't need anything for my 83 Int. right now I look on Ebay every day. I went to Ebay motors and put GL1100 in the search field, then selected "Newly Listed" and put an Icon on my desktop. I check it several times a day.
