GL1200 LOWER ACCENT PIECES

Postby dkdc12 » Sun Jul 20, 2014 10:06 pm



Hello again,
I purchased these accent pieces that mount just above the pegs or boards and just in front of the side covers. These panels fit my bike ('85 Int) but there are no mounting tabs where the corresponding bolt holes on the pieces are. Does anyone know how these mount... do they fit only on certain gl1200 models or do they have there own clips or brackets that wrap around the adjacent frame members?

Did you check with the people that you purchased them from? They look a bit 'universal', so they may fit a range of bikes and models.

Yes, before I bought them. The po told me where they fit on the bike. I just never checked the actual attachment points until I received them and tried to put them on. Thanks

I found the parts on "CMS parts for a better ride". This site contains blown-up diagrams of every area on any year or model of GL1200. They listed the parts on the schematics for '86 and '87 years but not for the '84 and '85. Now either Honda made slight changes to the frame to include threaded tabs or holes in "86 to accept these trim pieces or the pieces themselves came with their own hardware. Evidently this idea didn't come about till '86. So what I was wondering was if anyone out there that has a '86 or '87 GL1200 could tell me if their bike has fastening point on the frame where these parts would go? If so then I guess the trim panels are for sale as they won't work on the earlier year 1200's. Below are pics from the CMS site and a bike with them mounted. Thanks for any help. Steve
