Ok, some good news for a change! The current owner of the sidecar with the fiberglass damage said he found almost all of the mounting hardware for his old GL1500, and they'll fit the bike!!

He's missing the two top tubes, though. But after talking to the kit's manufacturer, he said ural top tubes will work just fine!!

Anyboby got a couple spare top tubes kicking around? (These are also called upper struts or turnbuckles).

If you can't find any used struts maybe consider new. Last year I bought a new one for my 2010 Gear Up for $19.99. Part Number is IMZ-8. 1034-20055.

Best,
