Vetter Trunk Key Duplicates

Post by DiverDavePMP »

Since February 2018, I’ve been restoring a 1981 GL1100 to working condition. (BLUF - Bottom Line Up Front: My wing is up and running for the 2018 riding season!) The PO only had a single set of original keys for the ignition, Hondaline hard saddlebags, glove boxes on the Pacifico fairing, and the Vetter trunk. Some of the original keys were pretty twisted/mangled, so I decided one of my initial tasks should be to find duplicates for all the keys. How hard could that be? Right?
So, fast forward to the end of August 2018. After 6-months of off & on effort, I finally found the blanks to duplicate the original key for the Vetter trunk that came with my GL1100. (The original key is marked VF-108) Lori at Golden Bear Lock & Safe found the “ilco x234, HYD 13” blank works for the original Vetter lock. See attached photos and/or ... ys.643/for more information.

Golden Bear Lock & Safe. Their address is 7445 Daron Ct., Plain City, OH 43064. 614-722-5625, ask for Lori. (Monday-Friday, 8:00 am - 4:30 pm EST) They are really, REALLY great!

NOTE: For blanks to duplicate the Hondaline hard saddlebags keys, using "ilco D1098X DE4", see viewtopic.php?p=272322#p270133
