1984 had 3 different models with different wiring harnesses.

There was no 'regular' goldwing.
Look at the vin plate on your steering neck
Three models were

Standard- a naked bike....
GL1200 vin tag designation

Interstate- fairing and bags w/analog gauges...
GL1200I vin tag designation

Aspencade- fairing and bags with an air compressor and digital dashboard..
GL1200A vin tag designation

1st picture is the Standard. Notice that the false tank is different that the Interstate and Aspencade which have the false tank molding into the fairing.

2nd picture is the Interstate. Single color paint.

3rd picture is the Aspencade. 2 tone paint.

4th picture shows vin number sequence for the 3 models.

Standard starts with SC140
Interstate starts with SC141
Aspencade starts with SC142

5th picture shows an 83 vin plate. Notice the GL1100I in lower left corner as a reference to what you should find on your vin plate.

All this information comes to you because I was a part manager..... You have to be specific on many parts for your bike. Honda made lots of changes in the early 80s so please figure out what you have.

And to add to that there have been folks that have taken the dressed parts off the Aspencade and Interstate and made them look like a naked Standard so vin identification is necessary.

Picture of my vin sir, thank you for helping me to understand better, it has rear saddle bags and 2 tone paint, but not sure if its original, gauges are regular gauges

You have the naked GL1200 Standard SC140 vin that the bags were added.

What is the reason you want another harness for?

Still at a loss, bought harness off ebay for my bike, guy sold me one that does not match mine at all, so now back to square one, I wish I could find some one who had one laying on the counter , so far ive hit every junk yard I can, and cannot find anyone with anything, may just be at a total loss on whole bike
