Hello from Iowa, and trying to determine exactly what I have...

Post by mcbrat »



Hi everyone. I just picked up this '84 GL 1200 from the original owner. The dealer installed the pre-84 fairing, and he ordered the 84 bags, as it was a naked model.

thought the fairing was an '83, but searching through the site and google, I'm not sure. it has the early type 1 radio.

thanks!

Yes mcbrat you have an 1100 fairing which was common on the naked 1200s if the purchaser wanted a fairing. Your fairing has the 82 and 83 Interstate color and stripes. Could be either year fairing.
And yes the type 1 radios fit though the type 2 Clarion radio came out in 83. (Same fairing was mold was from 1980-1983 though different colors were offered in 1980/81 than 82/83.
