Hi all,



Quick question concerning trailer hitches. I have a Markland light bar bumper along the rear of my bike and I wish to add a hitch. However, all the new hitches online state they are not for use with the lightbar. I really would like to keep my lightbar, but I also really want a hitch! I have found a possible candidate on Ebay, but the seller does not know if it will work. Anyone have a lightbar and a hitch on an 84 GL1200:baffled:? Thanks!

I've seen a lot of them on Ebay with a hitch and the large light bar on the 1100's and the 1200's. You might have to modify the light bar a little bit.

yes, thats what I was afraid of. I was just wondering if there was a direct bolt on option that was made. the one on ebay only has 2 rods, that I can see for mounting points. Thanks anyway.

I put a Markland hitch on my bike, but not 100% positive who made the lightbar. I had to get creative with it, but it can be done. If you need more pics, let me know.

I have an 83 with a full light bar and bought a trailer hitch off ebay that bolted right up with just one slight modification. He has an ebay store with nothing but goldwing stuff.

I purchased an '85A in the fall which came with a light bar and trailer hitch. I have since removed them, I never intend to tow. There didn't appear to be any modifications to either part. I'm sorry I can't tell you what brands they are, but here's a pic if it helps
