I've got a type of cap missing on the left side of my 83 GL1100. It goes on the frame
just to the lower front of the plastic side cover (see picture). The one I have on the right side of the bike is black so I'm looking to find one more black one for the left side. I would not be against getting two chrome or polished ones, just so long as I can have a matched set on the bike.
I just need to know what they are called so I know what to ask for or search for online. Even better, if anyone has a set I could purchase, that would be great.
It's not a huge deal, and I'm not trying to make this into a show bike by any means, but just one of the little things that I'd like to get to help clean up the look...Thanks!

Geez. . . You guys didn't waste any time on that one. Thank you. Did a search on eBay and found a set for $5.
Pretty painless and quick. Appreciate it greatly!

If you need to stretch your budget I found that One Gallon oil jug caps fit nicely . ;)

Hmmm, If I take my one from the other side, it does not fit the same. It is as if there is something inside keeping it from fitting all the way on. Maybe pics later. Thanks.

Shotgunner. . .THANKS! I saw the plain set for $5...So glad I didn't jump right at them. These are so much nicer. Well worth the extra $15.
:thumbsup:
Ragman.. If you pick up the ones with the wings...
The wings only attach with 2 sided tape.. One fell off pretty quickly..
Fortunately I was able to retrieve it.. Use small dab of clear silicone to adhere it mo better...Shotgunner..
