Gl1200 spares in uk

Post by Tubz »

Just wondering for future reference is there a list of people that stock new or used parts for a gl1200 located in the uk on here. If you look on eBay for parts most of them are usually in the U.S which after adding postage and import duty works out very costly. Especially if when the parts arrive they are not suitable for one reason or another. Eg. Not as described, in poor condition or broken or even totally the wrong part. The cost and the hassle of packaging these items back up and returning them in the hope that you might get a refund is in most cases simpley just isn't worth it. Just a thought. Thanks.

I have heard here, that GL1200 parts in the UK are hard to find. I only lived in England for 5 yrs. 74-1979 but never saw any big bikes of any kind. Maybe become friends with one of us Yanks slip us a quid or 2 and help you out once in awhile. :roll: Or just trade the GL for a British bike. Huumm
