    no, the gl is not a chopper. i'm toying with ideas for mods/chops to my cb750c. pretty straight forward question, "does anybody know what gl1100 front end will fit an 81 cb750c." I've seen photo's of it done, just looking for help in picking the right years to look for.

    Not at all... I didn't think he was asking for a chopper front end he just asked if it would fit.... Well that's the way I read it.... LOL Hell I answer questions all the time that weren't asked... LOL

    If I recall the GL1100 front end stays the same from 77-1983 or 4. Its a 35mm front end with dual discs.
