Thanks for letting me join your group.
I recently purchased my first Goldwing. She's a 1982 GL1100 Interstate with 22,350 miles on her. She's in excellent condition, never been laid down, and 99% complete.

Everything, I mean EVERYTHING is working on her, and she rides down the highway as smooth as a baby's bottom!! The only thing I had to replace on her were the Vetter speakers as they were dry rot.

As I said, this bike is 99% complete, but is missing one aftermarket rear bumper accessory lens. I have been searching for a replacement since I picked her up, about 3 weeks now, but can't find anything like it.

I would love to find its mate to make the bike complete, so I am asking for some help to locate one..

It is a screw on lens that attaches to a spring loaded arm that bolts to the rear bumper. Directly beneath the lens is a bulb to illuminate the lens. The one I have looks really cool in the evening.

Attached is a picture of the one that remains on my bike.

Thanks for the help everyone!!

Hello and welcome to the forum.
I know what that is and they are hard to find. Its a 'Marker Pole'. I had a show bike that had a set in red. You may find one in a salvage yard or a shop that has vintage parts.
If you deal with these people be careful, they have what you need in amber: Lights

They have what I want. Thanks for the lead. They seem legit??? We will see.. I ordered one for $35, although I did not need the spring base, only the lens and collar, which the do not offer the collar alone, just the lens alone, so I ordered the pole complete.. Thanks Trike Lady!

I love it when these older machines find someone who will keep them running. Good on you, and of course welcome to the group!

Hi Trike Lady,
Thanks again for the lead. The parts I ordered were fine, but my orig one has a metal jeweled collar, and the one I got has a plastic jeweled collar. You can't really see the diff. I ordered a trunk luggage rack off E-barf and got a killer deal on it. $23 free shipping. I installed them both today and will ride tomorrow.. I ordered a few more accessories from Saber Cycle as I like this marker pole. Again, thanks for the tip!!!
Happy riding!!!
