NC is not exactly around the corner from Indiana, where I live, but I have friends living in NC.
I was just wondering if you could take just a couple off pictures of the fairings you have, so I can at least see what it is all about.
I,m also looking for a couple of things that needs to be replaced on my GL500i.
1. the Right hand assemblebracket with the engine shut off switch and starter switch
2. boot for transaxle joint ( i link )
4. Fairing edge trim right side ( trottle side )
If you have any or all please leave me some note and some prices.
So we have a thread on here for Free Parts that Nice Folks are willing to give, here is a spot for People who need parts to ask for help. Please at least be willing to pay the shipping, this is a forum not a charity. Now It's helpful to have the Year and the model of your bike in your signature or at least in the post when asking for parts. Good Luck and Happy scrounging.
I have a want ad on the forumhttp://cx500forum.com/forum/selling-buying-forum/26668-81-custom-parts-needed.html, for parts for my '81 custom. Victor (VC3) has kindly offered to collect everything up and send it to me as one package, rather than lots of smaller packages, as the cost of shipping within the States is nothing compared to the cost of shipping from there to Australia. I am more than happy to pay for shipping, and a bit for the parts as well, but the budget is really limited on this bike.
No need for me on that count. If the matter has been resolved, just edit your own post. Bottom right is a tab to edit. Besides, if there is a member who supplied you, perhaps they'd like to be recognized.
Indeed Joel, RVP3, thank you for the better than the old one side cover. Thomas, you deserve a big thank you for the oval grommets, which help keep my covers nice and snug, not flying into God knows where, lol
I'm thinking about picking up beat GL650 from a friend. Cheap. I think murrayf has pretty well talked me out of an engine swap into a '78 frame I have, so I'm starting to look into repairing the GL. How hard would it be for me to find a good set of forks for this bike, and how much can I expect to pay if I can find them? Some very serious pitting/rust has rendered them useless. I'm just doing some research in advance of buying the bike... what I learn might make me say forget it.
