Bolts for what?

Most Goldwing fasteners are common metric sizes, reasonably obtainable from regular hardware suppliers, save for some special hardware like cylinder head bolts or special "shoulder" bolts like for valve covers. A lot of those can still be found OEM.

Need to be more specific what you are looking for.

Gary: If you Google GL1100 fasteners, you’ll find packages available for little to big money. They’ll mostly be stainless allen heads, so if that’s what you’re looking for, be sure to use copper anti-seize and torque to spec so you don’t over tighten.

You'll do much better with actual part numbers for those components. Having access to a service manual for that model motorcycle would provide that.

If it's old enough it's going to be a ten digit number example: 94007-00234 or the current alphanumeric variant.

Luck to ya!
