brake caliper bracket

Postby jswag5 » Tue Oct 05, 2010 5:27 pm



i took the brake caliper bracket off my bike the other day to try to quiet down some brake noise and found that the previous owner had broken one of the mount bolts off inside the bracket(i know it was previous owner because the bolt head was glued back in).

i thought no big deal i can get that out i have fought for several days and with no avail, so i thought id just get a replacement, checked out all the local salvage haunts and found nothing specific for a goldwing, found some that were close but not quite.
so i need the front right brake caliper mount for my 81 gl1100 standard(single piston caliper). if you have one or know where i might be able to find one, or of one from a different cycle that will work, please let me know, there are a few on ebay, but everybody wants a fortune and im not a rich guy.
