Where does this go?

Post by gsp4711 »





I stripped my old 1100 Wing a while ago for rebuild. Now putting it back together I have the inevitable parts left over. As well as some parts not around any more.
Can somebody help me with these parts? There are two, mirror images of each other and they are metal plate, rounded edges and about 10.5" x 2.5" (26 x 7 cm) with 10mm securing bolts - still attached.
The bike is an Interstate. I have studied the parts lists to try and identify them and the manuals to locate them, to no avail.
Anybody have any clues?

I'm not positive but it looks like one of the radiator cover mounts that also acts as a trim piece between the radiator and frame.
It's difficult for a man to understand something when his salary depends on his not understanding it.

Thanks LAB3. I have now found it. I was concentrating on the front end, around the radiators as you suggested, but it actually belongs at the back end, between the panniers and the rear mudguard (fender).
