Did someone take off the air shocks and put regular shocks on?

Those are air suspension hoses. They connect between the rear shocks and the compressor/selector panel on the top of the false tank. The compressor pumps air into them to adjust the preload on the rear suspension.

His profile says 80 gl1100,they don't have a air compressor do they? I think you should have a schrader valve behind the right side cover to fill the shocks.Post a pic of your shocks,WE NEED PICS! :D

You're right, I didn't see that in the profile. The 1980 still has air lines:



They run from each shock to the equalizer, which has the schraeder valve on it used to fill it:
