I have the opportunity to buy some rear shocks from a 1980 to use on my 79. they look as if they will fit. Can someone tell me for certain?


Thanks very much.

I've seen two GL1000s with the shocks from the GL1100. It looked like a straight swap and I don't remember seeing any adapters fitted. The air shock from the 1100 is supposed to transform the handling of the older model.

I seen a GL1000 a few years back with rear shocks from an 1100. It also had other stuff from the gl1100 fittted; fairing, rear trunk & saddlebags and wheels! Possibly more stuff as well that I can't remember now.
