85 Aspencade

I am searching for my 85 Aspencade right cylinder head cover. Unlike others that have 1200 emblem embossed, mine has a gold colored insert plate that says Goldwing and is fastened with two screws. Do you have a like part?

That rocker cover is off a 1000(pre 1980),not a 1200.Or are you just looking for the part that says Goldwing?

Thank you for your reply. There is something funny going on. My Aspencade is an 85 and there is a set of covers on E-bay for an 80 1100 model as you suggested however they appear to be a different shape than mine. Have a closer look at my picture and compare it to the 1980 covers on E-bay. Lyle

Not sure what you got going on the timing covers on your bike definitely look like a 1200,but the valve cover in your picture is off of a 1000 IMHO.
