    1983 gl650 interstate

    I am thinking of buying a 1983 GL650. Its passenger seat and driver seat have some tears. The gas tank has a small leak. I have a 1982 GL500 parts bike that I could use to address these issues. Will these GL500 parts work on the GL650?

    Also, the gas tank will need to be re-painted. Any idea how much this could cost?

    Thanks much, RandyD

    The GL500 body components are all a direct swap.

    Last year I switched all my GL500 body parts and gas tank to my GL650 with zero issues.
    The GL500 stuff was in better shape.
    I gave away the GL650 parts and both fairings.
    The GL500 is now a project bike.
    The 2,4,10 rule: know what is happening 2 seconds, 4 seconds and 10 seconds down the road.

    Current: '03 Kawasaki ZZR1200, '84 Kawasaki GPZ900R, '84 VF500F Interceptor, '83 GL650I, '81 CX500C, '82 GL500I project, '81 CX500C basket case, '79 CB750LTD, '85 CB700SC, '01 Kawasaki ZRX1200R, '72 Yamaha G7S
