Faring Removal or Back Rest & Saddlebag Addition? 82 Honda GL 500 Silver Wing discussion forum:
Faring Removal or Back Rest & Saddlebag Addition?

Faring Removal or Back Rest & Saddlebag Addition? 
Matthew said 2011-08-29 03:51:06 
I\´m looking at a couple 81 - 82 Silver Wing bikes. I love the look overall, including the hard saddle bags, passenger back rest & trunk, but hate the faring!

The way I see it I have 2 options available to me (based on the bikes available in my area). I can get one with the faring, hard saddlebags, back rest & trunk, and try to remove the faring, replacing it with a regular windshield, if available.

Or I can get the one without any of the above, and try to find the \´hardware\´ (hard saddlebags, back rest & trunk) online somewhere, and add them myself.

Both bikes cost roughly the same.

Basically I was wondering what might be the most cost effective & cause the least severe headache. I can\´t seem to find a plentiful amount of the \´hardware\´ I\´m looking for online. But I also read that removing the faring is a pain in %&#!¤itself, plus I\´d need to buy different replacement parts.

Any thoughts on this would be much appreciated! Thanks!
