what's this thingy ?

so me and my brother are in the process of combining a 1981 cb900, a 1982 aspencade, and a 1981 interstate into what should result in a decent 1981 naked goldwing (i may start a thread on this if i can remember to take pictures ).
there is a piece which i don't recall from either of my 2 gl1100 interstate resurrections, and i am almost certain that it didn't come off the cb900 so i am thinking that it may be a part that is specific to aspencades and, thus, not required for this amalgamation . i am also pretty sure it came from the front end ...


anyone know what this is ?

thanks
joe

It goes on the air intake of the filter.
It decapitates mice as they go in to build a nest. :o

Sorry! But it doesn't look familiar to the 1100 wing

Looks like a bracket for the horns on the top front of the radiator.

My guess is the spring for the gas door on the false tank.
