Wanted 85 GL1200A saddle bag lid

Post by Ryansrinny » Wed Apr 24, 2013 5:36 pm

I'm looking for a lid to cut a hole into so my dog can stick his head out but not the rest of him. Color doesn't matter as long as its cheap. either side is fine too. Just needs to all be there. cracks ok. I can fix it. Left side and Tan a plus! Thanks

Thanks for the idea. I got rear ended in 99 but bought the bike back from the insurance Co. I use a 85 interstate I picked up in 2012 for riding and have a 84 aspenacade for parts. Only the bottom saddlebags got crushed, everything else on the bike survived.I was using a type of square container for the back seat for my Shitzu, and liked the idea of the lid, so I got busy and cut, grind and painted. Used a visor, cut and rivited to the lid as a wind shield and put foam on the back to look like a high back seat. without the windshield the dog at a faster speed lays down and doesn't seem to enjoy the ride.
I just couldn't see cutting a hole which I did at first as an experiment to see how the dog would react. I also cut two 1" holes in the front and back for air circulation otherwise it can get quite hot in the compartment. I'd send you a picture of the finished product if I got your email address.

Hi Guy,
I have a left side bag cover off a silver 87 1200 that has been sanded down to paint. I'll take forty plus shipping if you are interested. Email darralm@att.net
