    Davivdj979; The upper mount uses a coupler nut to replace the shock nut. You then bolt the bracket to that and a U bolt. The mounts I have are available for sale/trade as they don't fit my 1100. As you can see the upper mount is too...

    I think i have the rear lower mount figured out - either cut it down, let it hang, or have it duplicated. It fits good, but is too long. The lower front fits fine. But the top is what i am missing. If you find your pics, i would like...

    The 1100 lower mount works on the 1000, but the whole back half is just kinda hanging out there !! I dont have the upper mount. It looks like It attaches to the shock strut? Then u-bolts around the frame? I will go look tomorrow at...

    The trim-grip is 9 1/4" center to center. As for the bike side mounts the 1000 upper mount is slightly longer and the lower rear is just over halve as long as the 1100s. The pics are of 1000 mounts.

    I aquired a TP attached to a 1982 gl1100, and want to put it on a 1978 gl1000. I have the lower mounts for the gl1100, which look a lot like the pics posted in 2015 by Riggs. The topmount, and the trim-grip are not original (the...

    Thanks for the images! They are very different to what I started with & what I created! Do the U-bolt clamps pull the angle section into contact with the front of the frame? I'm guessing that is why the black paint has worn off.

    6 inch Oval Truck LED lights fit once you cut an opening for them. This is a last resort measure but one that works. Just carefully cut the required opening on each side, pop them in, and hook your wiring up. there will be tiny holes...
