got a free 1100 today.just met fellow few days ago with this 82 his brother bought new. he inherited it 2 yrs ago and rode it once. he said it needed a starter. anyway,hauled it home. took spark plugs out.full of gas on 2 cylinders. cranked it over..blew all the gas out.put plugs back in. started right up. have to take carbs off and clean em,
then remove all the touring crap and make a standard out of it.be easier to sell as a standard.

same fellow I got the 1100 from asked me to find a buyer for his old 94 chev 4x4 too.  lil rusty.but runs drives fine. he has rust free frt fenders that match the doors,and frt bumper . so what the hell  I bought it myself for the $200 he wanted. if we get a place in country, will need a truck.  more pics after I get it home.
