Does anyone know what seats and trunks will fit an 83 Goldwing? I am going to try to make my bike like a cop bike! Where the trunk is right behnd the driver. I like the design of the 1200 trunk. I was just curious if anyone has tried something like this. I'm going to use other parts so I can put it back to stock if I need. My wife has a herniated disk, and it doesn't look like she will be riding with me too much longer:sadguy:. I will extend the trunk so it will reach from my back to the end of the saddlebags, and will not sit where it normally did.Total length around 18 inches. Any help will be deeply appreciated!!

I have seen several bikes set up like you described. It should be quite easy to fab some brackets that use the two fender bolts on each side that would support a trunk on the rear fender and use the backrest on the trunk for comfort and support.

I'd love to see the finished job.
Grew up watching CHIPS tho I think they were kwackers
Fancied doing the trike up as a black and white but sorry guys the ideal ride would be a 68 dodge polara cop package

You can edit it up to 99 hrs after you post. Happens all the time especially on my phone key board.

There is a set up where you can slide the trunk forward all the way to a one person back rest or back for two..I have seen it here or at NGW?? maybe someone will have to exact link..why build what already exists???

I would definitely like to see what this looks like. . .Although I don't think I could use it with the lights I added underneath my trunk, they'd probably hit the saddlebags if slid forward...

And yes, that is snow in the background. I took this picture at the end of March 2011...we still had some piles around that hadn't yet melted.........
