Looks like you have that right. Along with a few after market chrome parts. Looks like a nice wing!

sadly only looks good in pics, not so much in real life

Former owner(my grandfathers brother) thought it was a 1982, and it has 1982 spark plugs installed NGK DPR8EA-9 and the valves is way to tight mainly on exhaust so maby it was a gl 1000 engine. I have bought NGK DP8ES-L and will adjust the valves to correct specs.

If you would post a picture from either side showing the paint scheme on the gas tank we could tell you if it is a standard or an interstate with a different fairing. The valve covers are from an 1100 not a 1000. Side picture would also show carbs which are different between the two models.

What does the plate on the steering column say? It will tell you what yr, and where it was manufactured.
