Just saying hi

Postby manofallseasons » Fri Mar 20, 2015 11:58 am



I just got a 1987 Interstate and am wondering where I can find out more about the shock adjusting buttons. Also, there is a panel or ??? missing above the gas tank. It has a bunch of little rubber tabs sticking out. Any ideas if it was just a place for a logo or is it something important. Thanks! Dean

I don't have the bike home yet. Just bought it and it has to go through the shop first. The missing part is just where the handlebars join in the center. There are four little rubber tabs sticking out on a top row and 3 on the bottom. The size of the rectangle is about 3"X1 1/2". I'll get pics when I bring the bike home. Thanks. Dean

I just purchased a chrome replacement on ebay for less than $50. Sounds like you might be missing the plastic buttons as well. Ebay is best for replacement parts on these bikes
