but is the stock lock able to be rekeyed to fit the others?
Yes, it is. When I bought my '83 it came with 5 different keys. Ignition, right fairing cover, fuel door, bags, removable bag locks (it had Hondaline removable bags). Don't quite know how they all got changed but the bike was 23 years old when I got it so it must have seen a few interesting days. My father showed me how to re-key the locks and I was able to rekey them all to work with the ignition key.

This is often true of the earlier Goldwings, however with the advent of the GL1500 Honda used Left hand and Right key blanks for the locks, if you have a mix of locks on the bike and your key will slide into the lock but not turn then it CAN be re-keyed, but if the key will not enter the lock it is not possible to do.

Did any of you folks see the post ( I am not at all sure where I saw it )about creating a knob that stays with the bike, by cutting off the end of the key and gluing a replacement knob from the radio on the sawed off end of a key. obviously this is considering that you find a key/lock that will work. It would work for any lock that you don't need to be locked all the time. I do realize that this isn't an answer to the original question. Gook Luck

I have that on my fuel door and faring pocket. I traded those two locks with a buddy of mine. We both made them and even if someone did steal it and make a key out of it again, it won't work cuz it fits someone else's bike.
