    Parts For Sale 1983 GL1100 parting out, have full fairing and bags. corbin seat with 2000 miles on it. backrest and passenger trunk rest from corbin.

    Custom seat sources?

    Found something… pics coming soon!

    Please post whatever you find! I've been searching for that same noise for a month. lol Mine only does it when your driving it though. Thought it was wheel or brake or tach/speedo related but running with rear wheel in air, jacking up the front and spinning the crap out of the wheel ... nothing...

    82 interstate refurb

    Have rebuilt many a rear master cyl and front too without a problem just as long as there's no pitting in the piston area itself. New rotors are sold on ebay and I "think", Amazon.
