Hi

I am not sure this is an original GT380 part. Mine is a 1977 GT380 originally exported to Italy.

The rim I need is 40mm deep and has the numbers Koito 110 22300 on the inside. The headlamp reflector unit has the numbers Koito 5H8 997-15107

2 screws at 8 and 4 o'clock hold the rim to the unit. The unit has a parking light fitted.



Anyone know of where to get this rim? I have trawled the Suzuki parts websites but to no avail.

Thanks

David

I tried to add a photo but it didn't work!

Hi i dont think the headlamp rim for your bike should be any different to the standard issue. I know the engine size was different but the body parts should be the same. Obviously the headlamp lens would have to be a left hooker as they drive on the right.

It's not like that I'm afraid. Much deeper and different fittings

If I could post photos I would (I tried but it didn't upload)

classic bike spares in Holland thinks he's got one like mine so ordered. Let's see if it is the right one

Thanks for the reply anyway. I reckon there will be many oddities in my ownership of the 380!
