Welcome to Classics! Do the holes is the side covers serve a purpose, or is it just for looks? Oh yeah... nice work!

Glad your here. I love the rear shocks. Especially the eccentric cam adjustment on the bottom. Are they standard for that year as I'm not that familiar with these.

after having spent a ton of money on Metzlers in the past on my HD and Victory, I have grown to like these Shinkos.

+1 on the Shinkos
I still love my Metzlers on the sports bike but the Lasertechs on the Rats Nest were not good.

Not to sidetrack the thread, but be careful with those Shinko 712's if you are running them on a full dress version. They are running right at the load capacity and may wear out sooner than expected... When I had them on my 1100 when it was configured as a bagger, I had no problem. When I put the trunk and additional metal on the rear end and started towing a trailer, my mileage reduced significantly. I switched to the Tourmaster 230's because they are rated for a higher weight and got the mileage back. Now I have a car tire on the rear of the 87 and mileage is no longer an issue.

Thanks for the heads up :good: I do have my GL1100 naked! I will go with the 230's next time!

It was made from a stamped tank half that painters use for demo or displays.
