Newbie here. I have a '99 GL 1500 SE. Evidently Honda changed the crash bars in '98 and now it appears to me to be impossible to mount highway pegs on these crash bars. Previous to '98, 1500's had really good bars for mounting hiway pegs to. My questions are: 1) Will pre '98 crash bars fit my bike? and 2) where is the best place to look for said bars if indeed they will fit? Thanks for your help.

Yes, they are interchangeable and whatever works for you as to comfort. I have the loop shape crash bars on my 93. I use what's called a 'Toe Rest', it allows me to put my heel on the foot peg and toe on this metal tab on the crash bar.
Welcome to the forum and greetings from Florida

All the crash bars are the same size, on the 88 to 97 you had a top and bottom crash bar, on the 98 up you only had the bottom of the crash bar, same as on the 1800, there are several highway pegs that will work you don't have to get a set made just for the 88 to 97 GW that mount between the top and bottom bar.
If you look close you can see a bar that runs between the top and bottom bar on the crash bar and the highway bar is mounted to that bar in this picture


In this picture is the newer style that mounts on the bottom bar. I had these on my 98Se and on both my 1800's

Here is a pic of my 98 SE with the highway boards. You can see where they attached.

I cut the rear off the crash bar, capped them with 7/8" chrome plugs. modified the mounting bracket and put the highway boards on the bottom tube. Works great.
