somebody is confused, if what you are looking at is indeed a 82 then it is a 1100 NOT a 1200. A 84-87 would be the 1200. As for interchangeability is concerened there will be a few bits but not many, they are different animals.

Be sure when you're getting parts for the '82-83 if you have an Aspencade you get Aspencade parts. Or they might not fit. I picked up some brakes from a guy that said they were of an Aspencade and they didn't fit. :evil: They actualy came off a regular GL. The callipers were smaller almost 1/2 the size.
