:action:Is the frame/sub frame the same on an 83 GL1100I Goldwing as a 80,81, 82?

Yes, they only changed the shocks and wheels on the 82-83 which made the ride lower. In addition, many 1981s had the swingarm legs welded in the wrong place which made the rear wheel track almost 2" off the front. Honda had to supply a spacer kit to make the wheel sit properly. Motto here is if you want to fit a used swingarm, get one off an 82 or 83.
