Hitch for 85 Aspencade GL1200

I am looking for a fairly priced hitch but all I find online are ones that have to be modified to fit my bike, does anyone know where I can find one. and yes I have scoured ebay and amazon with no luck. I would like to find a used one if I can. I have also check craigslist.

If I disagree with you it's simply because you're wrong.

I have a hitch I took of my 84, no longer have the bike but hitch sitting in my garage. I was hoping it would fit a 1500 but don't think it will now

Once it is installed, it doesn't look that bad...

Aspencade

Yes that one will fit but must be adapted to fit an aspencade. I dont have the tools or resources to do that and dont want to pay someone after paying for the hitch.

Here is a link to the exact same model, If you Google the 993-181 hitch you will find it on many websites, most will say that it must be modified but some dont. I also found Bikers that have had an issue because websites didn't tell them but when they got the hitch the instructions do say it must be modified.

Yes it will fit, just needs a modification to the bracket, It plainly states that.
