82 Gl1100 (naked) passenger back rest

Post by Chiller449 »



I have an 82 GL1100 Naked (no fairings) I’m trying to find a passenger back rest without putting the old trunk on the back. Does anyone know if Honda made one or of an aftermarket one that would fit? Thanks!

Yes exactly like that. I wonder if they make one for an 82. Or maybe I could make some sort of bracket or something to convert it to fit my bike.

Back in the day there were plenty of "Universal" one size fits all types of accessories. Lots of holes and mounting clamps and such. Not as common anymore, but look on ebay and such for something that you can work with. Usually mounts to the upper shock bolts, then you just need to pick up a point to stop rotation and get the angle you want.
