Does anyone want a professionally restored radiator? I have a spare that I can take to a local shop that just went through my current one and made it look great. Clean, pressure test, fresh paint. Their service is $128, so I'd need that amount back, plus some extra for shipping. How about $225 shipped???

Any 79 fork covers (headlight brackets) for the rectangular turn signals? I think they were used on the 79 z models. Thanks!

I doubt it, i'd have to check the "other" boxes from the previous teardowns. I'll check though. What's difference between those and the earlier brackets?

$35?!? That's crazy! What all did you get done for that price? $128 was a full cleaning, pressure/leakdown test, fin straightening and painting (basically a restoration), and I felt that was fair

Re the fork ears: the 79 model has a rectangular tab 6mm thick by about 20mm long sticking out from the side that the turn signal mounts on. earlier gold wings have a round threaded hole in the fork cover that takes a splined hollow fitting that screws into that hole. the round type turn signals mount on the splined fitting. I need the fork covers with the rectangular tab.

How much are you looking to get for the muffler, and can you send a few pics? My muffler might have just been ruined by the ceramic coating shop who just blasted off the chrome tips and coated over them.

I've got a '75 with chrome aftermarket valve covers that are flakey, pretty rough. Got anything I can use?

Curious if you still have any early-style (75-77) muffler shields in decent-to-good shape? Or, if they have to go as a package, what you still have as far as mufflers? Thanks.
