1982 GL500 SilverWing rear shock - Replacement options..?

Post by Feristo » Tue Feb 11, 2020 11:06 am



I am looking over a GL500 Silverwing (which I think maybe a better ride for ME than the Customs I have had at my house that I find too small)

The S'Wing has a bad rear shock (I've only spoken to the current owner and not seem the bike yet).

But before I get too involved in this bike -- is this a part that can be sourced in some way..? Aftermarket? real size replacement? OEM (nla?)

Anyone found a solution for this one. ..?

As always your advice is greatly appreciated...

This is a Goldwing site. You might do better asking a Silverwing site.
