    I am really just after the fiberglass portion of the air cleaner in good restorable condition for a 1969 GS, but I am willing to buy the whole thing if necessary.
    I believe the fiberglass section is the same for 69-71. Correct me if I am wrong.
    I know the steel portion is different, but mine is okay so I can accept something from other years.

    I am just finishing up cleanup/restore of a complete 1971 unit. Let me know if it sounds like what youre looking for.

    steel pieces dipped clean then zinc chromated.
    fiberglass pieces lightly cleaned then media blasted. - no cracks or breaks.
    everything given a coat of satin black rustoleum
    vacuum motors still work. new vacuum hoses
    new foams
    new fb59 filter
    new thermac valve

    I will have it completed soon and will post pics

    IIRC the 69 is different from the 70-1's.

    Yup , breather tube on opposite side as 70.

    My point is that the fiberglass part is all I really care about, which is identical for the three years.
    .Metal part is different but I don't care -- already have good correct 69 metal part.

    So why did they switch the breather tube location anyway?
