Cheap-o front fender GL with PICT

Yes they fit! The GL1100 front fender (1982) fit our front ends with little mod. Only need to drill out the fender mount holes to fit our size. Paint (rattle can) coming soon.

Cutris, you might like this for our wet weather riding.

I got a 1980 gl 1100 on mine and it luckily came with the chrome guard....bid it on ebay.

Where did I get mine? look in the background just above the fender! My guess is there is a ton of these out there for sale. I took the chrome off due to too much rust.

For us folks that live up in the Pacific Northwest this would seem to be a common sense modification to do. I know as soon as I get a fender I will do it.

Another question is, do you have the 100/90 or the 110/90 tire? Do you know if it will fit with the 110?

It's been discussed before and it'll fit with the 110.

I do like that mod... unfortunately the mcy scrap yards 'round here suck...

I'm running stock 100/90. I don't think there will be a problem. There are two metal channels just above the mount bolts that might need to be trimmed, but maybe not.

What about that yard near Turner? I think it's Kuebler exit off of I-5 south of Salem.

It looks like $#!* on there backwards, believe me. It ain't easy to see in DT's pic, but the GL1100 fender has a built-in mudflap/flare at the rear.
