    It's been a long time since I had my GS1000G to recall model differences, but I would guess that the "L" had a more pronounced king/queen seat and possibly a chrome rear fender, rather than the "tail" on the "G".

    Congrats on the purchase. I don't think you will regret it!

    The L was there cruiser model,high pull back bars,step seat and LL forks and a more tear drop tank.The G was the standard model with a wide flat seat,lower bars and a 5.8 gal standard tank.

    Got er for 700.00 at a swap meet. Well under 1,500.00 after replacing almost every seal, heads, tires and bearings. A before pic, looks about the same now and a pic of the mock-up of the new front end to be installed soon. I'll get an after shot next week.

    I don't know... That mirror looks un-fixable. Tell you what- make sure it runs for me, I'll fly out there and ride it home so you don't have to worry about dumping any more money into it. :deal
