I recently bought an 86 Interstate and the left pocket cover was in poor shape. Origional covers on e-Bay were very expensive and mostly in as bad shape as the one I had.

I did some searching and found these:

http://www.accessoryinternational.com/fairingpocketcovers.htm

They have them for the 1200's, 1500's & 1800's.

Got one and am very pleased. Not origional equipment but much betterlooking then what I had.

Actually, the link above has a cover for the 82-83 1100s. You may be in luck. I have an '81 interstate. Anyone know what the difference in the fairings is? I thought they were all the same, 80-83...

hossners,

Yes, the 80-83 fairings are the same for the most part, barring certain small differences. The pockets and pocket dimensions were all the same, unless I've gone completely off course.

Yes, the '80 to '81 cover had snaps on 3 sides, the left side was riveted to the pocket, and you undid the 3 sides, and the pocket folded over to the left.. The '82 and '83 had snaps on all 4 sides, no rivets.

I forget who it was, but someone here was offering left side covers that he either made, or had made-up. If I recall correctly, there was a clear pocket sewn onto thefront/top of the cover as in a map window or the like. Looked excellent and relatively inexpensive. I don't know if it was a small batch run or not. Maybe he'll post.

I still have two brand-new pocket covers for a GL-1200, made by a friend of mine in Mexico. Made of genuine (and thicker than the original) leather. Will last for over a decade I'm sure.

I paid $20 each and will sell them for $25 including postage.

Not making money - just providing a service.

I had some bad luck with duplicating the 1100 covers, but the 1200s and 1500s turned out quite nice.

PM me here or email rgbeard2002 at yahoo

Thanks Dusty Boots. I remembered the covers well, just not who they were from.

I didn't think of searching for them.

I clicked the links of the others above. The first gave no cost and bikerparts wouldn't come up...
