I've seen them used on ebay,but you have a interstate.Not sure but don't think you can use them,lower fairings cover that area where they bolt on the radiator.They came on the naked wings.

Still lots around at wreckers or on ebay. Bike doesn't look right without it.

As for fitting... they will fit on a fully dressed Goldwing as well as naked wings. They mount to a bracket on the lower rad mount and on brackets that are near the engine guards. Mine covers the lower screw mount on the lower fairing... just one more thing you need to take off in order to get things done. I've got it down to under an hour to get my "shelter" off; but the first time was about three hours. In my defense, I had a very sore back that week...

Take a look at the pictures I posted on here under my rides. One is my 82 with the air dam on it. They go on the dressed wing just fine and look great.

I know this is an old post but how do you install the air dam on the 83 GL 1100
