Any idea if the tins off a 98 750 ACE will fit a same year 1100?

I have a set of 98 tins my wife loves and I would like to buy her an 1100 ACE to install them on.

She doesnt want a T, thats good or she would take mine.

Don't think they will interchange, rear fender struts are definitely different.

Edit: Not saying they can't be made to work, just pretty sure it's not a bolt-on propisition.

Sell your tins and paint the 750 tins (plastics) with the money?  Nothing wrong with the 750 Ace, I have 2 of them,,,  have done a 12 day trip on one riding 2-up with no problems.

Curved struts look the same to me, tires are the same size, its really the tank size that is different.  3.69 gal vs 4.2 gal.

Ummm, guess I mis-understood, are the tins off a regular 1100 Ace? If so, all you can do is try it. the rear fender struts are different part numbers between the 750 and 1100., maybe adapt the 1100 struts?
