GL 1100 fork headlight ears

Post by Darkshadow87 »

Im converting my 82 gl 1100 interstate into a standard bike. I want to put the fork ears off a standard bike on it my question is do I have to have the fork badge piece also? Or if i buy a set of standard headlight brackets can I just use those on there own? ive seen the clamp on universal style but in my opinion they look really cheap.I would rather have some original headlight brackets. if anyone knows about this I would appreciate a response.

standard headlight ears will work fine on their own. If you can find the front emblem it will complete the cosmetics of the front end but really serve no other use. They actually attach to the front brake line splitter. Keep your eyes on ebay front emblems do come up from time to time but are a bit spendy
