"86 VT1100, top bridge/triple interchange...need help.."

Hello fellas! I dont ride a Shadow, but it is a Honda....87 Magna 700. Im working on a mod for the bike. I want to put dual disk brakes on to replace the single front disk. My mod is strictly about looks as my brakes work great. Im using the front clip from a 85-86 Shadow 1100 - I chose the 86-86 Shadow 1100 because it has center axle forks and the wheel looks exactly like my Magna wheel. All of the 86 on back Magnas had ugly wheels, in my opinion, and leading axle forks.

Question is, will the top triple bridge from a later Shadow mount to the 85-86 Shadow 1100?

Thanks guys!! Ed


If I cant fix it, I will muck it up so nobody can

Today I had the opportunity to go to my local bone yard (Eagle Cycle Salvage in St Pete FL). Took my 85-86 VT1100 parts for comparison. Well, the mystery has been solved - NO later Shadow model triple will interchange with the 85-86. No 600, 750 or 1100 later models will work, too many differences. Attempting to just use the upper and lower triple would create more issues to resolve. So, its official, I will be staying with what I have, the 85-86 1100 front clip.
