?Source for chrome levers for '83 Aspy?

Postby NKYWinger » Tue Nov 15, 2011 12:50 pm



I'm trying to find a source for chrome brake/clutch levers for my '83 Aspy; what I've found available isn't a fit for an '83..... older - yes newer - yes :?: :?: Any ideas? :?: :?:

Thanks! John

How about having yours done at a local chrome shop?Might be cheaper than new ones to boot. :?:

I thought they were made out of a composite; if they are aluminum, I'll just polish them on the buffer like I've done to other parts... are they aluminum? :?: :?:

If they're OEM, they're aluminum painted black.

Only took me about 5 mins. to install them

Brake / Clutch Levers
AN-292-634E /79-81


I'm guessing, Todd, that even though their listing says for 79-81, they worked just fine on your bike?
If that's the case, I'll call 'em today!

Johan- they sure will, BUT I've been warned by many about dealing with Sabre Cycle, so I'm a tad bit hesitant......thanks though!

I understand completely, I have heard the same warnings but myself have only dealt with them once and didn't have an issue.
I have quite a few links for goldwing accessories and this was the only one I could find that had any levers listed for the 83.
good luck with your bike..

PS. my youngest brother is buying an 83 as well and it'll be his first wing.. :D :D

I bought a brand new set of chrome levers in the package at Zdeno Cycle in Kitchener, Ontario, Canada. They had a few sets last time I was there. They work fine on my '83 Aspencade, but you have to get the right ones for your year of bike.

Not sure if they will ship you a set, but here is a link to their website http://www.zdenocycle.ca
