AFAIK Jay at DMC Sidecars may have all the remaining Terraplane mounts. Give them a call.

If you have not heard back, it means your email did not make it to me or your return email address was wrong, emails are answered at least once an hour during normal hours.
When I moved my home about 1 1/2 years ago as Vetter mounts seldom sold it made more sense to send all of the NOS to scrap then to move a shipping container full of mounts that we only sold one or two a year of for $150. So no more NOS Vetter mounts.
The only way we can do Vetter mounts now is to either have the bike and sidecar in our shop for a custom build or to convert the sidecar over to a 4 point mount. We make a 100% bolt on kit for the sidecar to do this, current price is $750. Then you can use our standard bike side mount set, Most of our mount sets go for $775. I had a Vetter on a GL1100 for a while, worked very well. I also put 150K on a sidecar equipped 1983 GL1100A, great sidecar bike in its day.

Thanks for the info, Jay. Seems like I'm always a day late and a dollar short. I have a set of 80-91 GL1100 mounts and a line on a low mileage GL1100I, but I was trying to cover my bets in the event the deal falls through. If that should happen, you'll be hearing from me for a conversion. Thanks again for your help.

Should have read 80-81 mounts. I'm not aware of any 91 model GL1100's.
