I have an '82 wing and have purchased a second seat to have recovered that came off an '81. Mounting brackets are slightly different but look like the can be switched. Will this work beforeI spend $$ to re-upholster seat???
81 to an 82 should be a direct swap with no modifications needed. In the 1100's the only that is not a direct swap is the 83. For an 83 to mount previous years, you must relocat the trunk back a few inches.
On your new seat, did it have the ability to be able to move the seat or was it a single bolt hole? A single bolt hole seat was for the 1000. The 1100's are adjustable so the have an elongated hole. 1000 and 1100 are somewhat interchangeable, the front slide in mount is a little different from the 1000 the 1100.However the 1200 is not interchangeable with either of the othertwo.
