I need help from someone with a first gen GL1000 with Hondaline saddle bags and luggage rack. I am working on a 1977 project and want to run Hondaline saddlebags on both sides. I have found and purchased a complete set of three bags, side mounts, luggage rack with a bag mount and an adjustable passenger backrest built in to the luggage rack. The backrest is made to be adjustable in that it slides fore and aft in the top tubes of the luggage rack. The problem is that I didn't get the clamping parts for the backrest. There are two holes per side with a bolt that was welded between them on the bottom side of the luggage rack. The threaded part of the bolts are broken off and I can repair that problem, but I have never seen the mechanism used to clamp to the backrest to secure it in position. Attached is a picture of the holes and broken bolt on the bottom side of my luggage rack. If anyone else has this equipment, a picture of what is supposed to be there would be a great help in fixing this part. Thanks in advance for your help. You guys have been the most helpful of any forum I am involved in and I appreciate it.

The backrest sounds like it is aftermarket, I don't remember the gl1100 having a stock adjustable backrest.

If it's anything like mine, there is not clamping mechanism, it just slides into the pipe and is held there by friction. It's pretty tight, but I rarely drive with it when I'm solo anyway. I don't know if mine is Hondaline, don't think so, but it sounds similar.

should have had a spring loaded ball in the pipe that slips in there. you had to push down on the ball to get it to move. maybe the broken screw was the lock.

just do it and ask questions later. if you never start you\'ll never finish.

I do not think there were any Hondaline stuff on the GL1000.
I believe that started with the GL1100 Interstate and Aspencades.

I have a 77 that has the same rack- rest combo that you have. The broken screws are the locks for the backrest. They hold by friction only.

Larry,

You know, I'd kill for a picture of that arrangement. I would like to get an idea of how that screw applied friction to the back rest. Could you do that? Thanks for the reply.

Still looking for anyone with the luggage rack/back rest, shown in this thread, that can send me a picture of the arrangement.
