Hi
I need a rust free GL500I silverwing air deflector between engine and frame, I found one on ebay for $25 but the seller will not post to England.
Thanks in advance
Frank

Thanks
I want a rust free part
Your looking for a 40 yr old part that is rust free in the UK? I live in desert conditions and would not expect to find such?

Drill your rivets, cut a new rubber, sand/grind/sand blast(what ever it needs), and paint metal, reassemble

Rust free NOS is expensive....
If you are doing a concourse resto maybe not. I don't think this is the case here on a part you can't even see. A simple rebuild/clean and paint would be IMHO more than ok

Hi
Not concourse , replacing rusted-rotten parts , I watched a guy on youtube chop up what looked like a rust free GL500 to make a bobber.
Thanks again

No middle ground .....most NOS ex cmsnl are listed as per original honda pricing...yes inflated
Unlikely to find a rust free used part. But theres Nos.. on ebay. E.g. nos parts now and several others.....
Or just sand and repaint/rustproof a £15 ebay part.....

Cmsnl offers both NOS (old stock) and parts nade to exceed OEM...ie small batch pattern to oem spec.....

Ive used both....no issue
Also sometimes some honda bulk items dont come with (honda) packaging...
