Hi there, now I know this issue must have came up a few times, but what shocks will work on my 1980 GL 1100, front and back.
It doesn't have to be air as long as they are somewhat comfortable. Thanks in advance.

I've used Progressive Suspension's 412 shocks on the rear and in the forks there t fork springs.
I've also bought cheaper shocks on EBAY and are ok.
