First off, I would like to say hello as this is my first post here. I purchased my first silverwing about a month ago off of ebay. 1982 GL 500 Silverwing Interstate with customs. I think the former owner posted his upgrades to the bike here while in progress but I cant seem to find the posts his name is Jerry some of you may know who I am talking about by the upgrades I am about to list? The bike is absolute spotless clean with only a few scratchess. It has GL 900 brake up grades front and rear, GL 650 forks, GL1100 wheels and handlebars, electric fan upgrade and runs out very nice and I am completely thrilled. If anyone hear happens to know where I might find his postes I would appreciate the heads up as I am new and just figuring out how to use the forum. I will post my first question in a new topic. I LOVE my new bike and am very happy to now be a part of the family of Silverwing owners. Peace out Jay

Hi, welcome to the forum.

If you search this forum and the old forum( http://choppercharles.com/cs/forums ) for Spacetiger,,I think that will find what you are looking for.

Welcome to the forum, Jay. Please take a few minutes to edit your profile to show your location and to edit your signature to show your bike's year and model.



The search function on the old forum does not work. To find the posts there, use Google to search for this string:

I should have mentioned that,




Actually the search will work at the old forum, but don't use the search box in the blue header banner at the upper right corner.

When you are in the individual forums(general forum, technical forum, etc.)there are two buttons near the top of the page on the left side, one says "post" and the other says "search", if you click that search button it will bring up a search box that will work.

Thanks so very much for helping me find the posts of my bike here!!! Jerry tried to send me a link to it but for whatever reason it never got through to me and you are absolutely correct the bike in the spacetiger posts is the bike I now own and love. I feel very luck to have taken over such a special ride. It will be very much loved and cared for by me. I had a feeling someone here would be able to turn me on to the posts and you did. Thanks again and so glad to be on board. Jay

It's really cool that a bike that has been on here before gets passed on so it keeps a lineage.



FYI they didn't make a GL900 so your front brakes if I recall Spacetiger's mods are from an old style CB900 should you ever need service parts.The brake shoes are the same as a CX500 if it's the single piston type of brake calliper?



I have a pair of CB900 Brake callipers on my present CX500

Yes, and thanks for the heads up I just didnt remember exactly right. I did see this while reading some of the Spacetiger posts. Jerry also gave me a CD with a detailed account of all the mods he did on this bike, but I have not gone through it yet. Thanks again for the heads up you guys are awesome. Jay
