I know it's a long shot but, looking for OEM bike side mounts for a 80 Gold Wing.
Thanks

Please tell me what bike side mounts are. I have an 80 naked wing here in need of repair and might part it out. Not sure if I have what you need but let me know what they are.

You will need the bike side mounts as well as the two pylons. Pylons are the parts that come off of the sidecar that attach the sidecar to the bike side mounts. These are specific to the 1980 and 1981 bikes as Honda changed the wheel size for 1982 which changed the bikes stance some. Chances are you would not notice the difference but they did have different part numbers. The front lower mount for the GL1000 is the same as for the GL1100. The rear mount is different between the GL1000 and the GL1100 however it is not all that hard to make the 1000 work on the GL1100, you just need to drill a hole and do things slightly differently. Sorry I can not remember the details as I have not done this in about 15 years. We had all of the NOS Vetter parts but sent them all to scrap about 4 years ago as I was moving (they were stored at my house in a shipping container) and there is now so little demand for these parts that I could not justify moving and storing the parts. We do make mounts for your bike for a standard 4 point mount however you also need to convert the sidecar over to a standard adjustable 4 point mount. This is significantly more money then finding the original parts.

Thanks Jay, The pylons were left on the chair so i have them and I have photos of the bike side from a member of the Vetter forum. Just fishing here
Bone, If you send or post a pic of the right side of your bike I will let you know if the parts i need are there.

The pylons were specific to the bike that the sidecar came off of. Each bike takes different pylons, so unless the bike was a 1980-81 GL1100 they will be wrong however the GL1000 and 1982/83 Goldwing pylons are close enough, the sidecar just will not sit perfectly level.

I can't seem to find those foot pegs. I was sure they were there somewhere. They are not attached to the bike. I will keep looking and if I find them I will let you know. I have had this thing sitting here for about 10 years. A project I never got to. I need to sell it.

For what it is worth, we have a GL1100 parts bike going to scrap in the next few weeks as we do not wish to move it. I will not pull parts from it however if some one wants to come and get parts they are free.
Note the date today is 1-29-2018 I point this out as I have people asking about things I posted back in the 1990's

I'd love to come out and see your shop Jay, but a road trip not in the cards.
Thanks

Hey Jay,

Do you still have the GL1100 parts bike? I can't make the trip either, but I do know some folks in WA that just might help you out with getting that oldwing out from under foot.

Understood. Guess I should troll more than just the General and Tech threads!

Hope your move went well!
