My right saddle bag chrome trim is getting a little worn. It's the chrome strip that runs along the bottom of the saddle bag and also needs the sliding 1"caps/pieces that cover the screw access area. Any ideas where to get them?

Thanks!

Not absolutely cetain, but I think Cyclemaxohio do the little sprung clips you are talking off, but I am note sure if they do the trim. always worth an email to them since they are so helpful to site members here.

I bought some about 1 1/2 years ago online, I posted a thread about it, it was from an automotive supplier,and a lot cheaper to buy then from a stealer. Here is the thread: http://www.goldwingfacts.com/forums/view_topic.php?id=29164&forum_id=4&highlight=saddlebag+trim



My chrome trim around the lower saddlebags and back of my 1500 was looking pretty bad, peeled, yellowed, etc. Mother Honda wants a arm and a leg for all 5 pieces, and local automotive stores don't carry the correct type of 5/8 inch chrome mouldings, so I did a little research and found a 20 Ft roll for about $25 with shipping. Got it in yesterday, and after measuring and cutting to replace the old sections, installed, and now, it looks just like it did when it was new(at least the chrome does.). Honda's cost from hdlparts(before shipping) about $91, my cost from SportWing INC., $25 with shipping, plus enough left over to redo it again, if I ever need to. Part# MLD-DM20 from: http://www.sportwing.com/catalog/displaycat.pcgi?fm_catid=92&fm_subcatid=106



It still looks like new after all this time.

Great find! The only problem is the part number does not come up on their site. Got a different number maybe??

That part number was about 2 years ago, also the price was a lot cheaper then, here is the updated info page: http://www.sportwing.net/chromewheelwellbodyside58wide.aspx



Still probably cheaper than the dealers, comes in either a 50 ft roll or a 150 ft roll, it used to come in a 20 ft roll back when I bought it, a 20 ft roll could do 2 wings real easily, so a 50 ft could do 4-5 wings. You could do the neighborhood!:cheeky1:

No bad idea here, Hawaii could share the cost with other members on here which would make it relatively cheap to replace, or use what he needs and sell the remainder on ebay in correct lengths for 1500 boxes. :clapper:

Out of interest, are the OEM trims stuck on with just double sided tape or are there other fixings?

I do know that the replacement cover clips are not too expensive from somewhere like Cyclemax, and the replacement of shabby ones on the bike will make a whole lot of difference to its appearance and smarten it up a lot.
