1981 Seat swap

Postby t_reister » Sat Sep 15, 2012 8:23 pm



I have an older 1200 and don't like the seat as well as what I had on my GL 1500. From pics on bay, it looks like the seat from the 1987 is similiar and the back rest is bigger ( so is the trunk lid). Has anybody put the 87 seat and trunk lid on the 81??

I took my seat, back rest, and trunk to a local auto upholster. Got all three for 135.00 and they are way better than stock. I also got some padding added to the seat. Looks great and works like a champ. A new seat alone on ebay was 150.00
