Threaded knob for a back-rest
I have a back-rest for my 85 Aspy that looks like it is OEM - the cover for it has the GL1200 emblem embossed into it/ Anyways, the back-rest uses a threaded fastener with a knob to attach to the bracket. Well, the threaded tip broke off in the bracket. I think I should be able to get the small piece out of the threads, but am looking for a new knob. Anyone know where to find one?

Honda doesnt make or install backrests.
The only stupid questions are the one's that are not asked.

I drilled mine out to american threads, and got new knobs at ACE hardware. They have several different styles.Tongue
