got some info on this in another thread about radios...
it's my understanding that 80-82 is all common or interchangeable
then for 83, there's a longer seat, the trunk is bigger (read that somewhere) as well as moved aft to accommodate the longer seat

for my 82, is the longer 83 seat a bolt in? or even usable with the original location of the trunk?
i'd also like to use the bigger trunk from an 83, will it work with my original mounts and rack? dunno how they went about moving the 83 trunk aft, whether with a new mount/rack for the 83 model or by just repositioning the mounting points inside the trunk
also interested in any info regarding using GL1200 stuff (bags/trunk)
at a quick glance, looks to me like the 1200 trunk is meant to stay attached, unlike the 1100 line where it comes off quick via key lock
also noticed recently that there are aftermarket trunk relocation (aft) kits out there, tia
