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.



Edit:



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.

I'm working this idea right now. Have a nice mustang seat from my 77 1000 that I'm looking at putting on my 83 1100. The 1k seat seams to be narrower in the front than the 1100.

Hope I can get it to work as the 1k has a built in backrest and is alot better than the other seat

there are many more choices for the 1200

They will all fit. The 83 seat is much plumper and hard to fit without the later trunk kit.
