    Default Has anyone chopped a gl1100

    I have purchased a gl1100 after buying a stretched tank and a solo seat I'm about to chop the frame. I'm looking for ideas and info on front end conversion kits I'm wanting to run a Springer front end and I'll be looking for wheels or a conversion for the rear also

    Wheel swaps on goldwings can be tricky. The 1200 wheels fit the 1100 and 1100 the 12. The 1000 spokes fit the 1000. Takes alot of engineering to fit another wheel. You can fit the 1000 final drive onto the 1100 swingarm BUTTT you have to extend the left side of the swingarm to match it. I've been building my bagger for 3 years and it's been a royal pain in the dick making things fit.

    As for front ends theshadow front end will pretty easily swap. Need a spacer between the top triple tree and the neck, swap the stem or shorten the stem.

    I chopped a GL1000 a few years back.
    There is a thread on here for my Trashbagger
    I’m in the process of building another one with my son. After several false starts with bed engines I think we finally have a good one! Word to the wise, make sure the bike runs before you chop it.
