    Lightbulb New to the Gl500 Game

    Hey guys! I was gifted a 1982 Gl500 Silverwing by a good friend of mine and I'm looking for some good ideas. I like bobbers, but I also want to put the back seat on for my wife. Thanks!

    The front fender acts as a fork brace, worth finding one and putting it back on.
    Headlights? Turn signals?
    Where are you? Somebody might have some parts to donate ore sell cheap.

    Please,
    1.) Edit your profile to include your location.
    2.) While you are editing the profile, add in the model and year of your bike.
    3.) Can you provide any history on the bike like say mileage, condition, is/was it running.........

    The more information you can provide, the easier it will be for someone to assist.
