  • What year is my XS11 ?

    Hello:

    I am not sure what year my bike is. This is the info I have.

    manufacture date on frame 8/78
    vin 2H7-110321
    The bike is in Canada

    I have a pdf file about paint codes and it says vin 2H7-100101 and up is a Canadian 1979 bike.
    I can't upload the pdf, don't see how to.

    I think it is a 1979 model because I don't have the headlight switch on the right switch gear.

    thanks for your help,
    Ronnie_D

      Hi Bas,

      Thank you. This is what I have too. From this "decoder ring" lol, mine looks to be a 1979. I am going to paint it Indigo blue.

      cheers,
      Ronnie_D

        Ronnie, the Indigo blue is actually a Japanese color. Here, in the U.S. that 81 Venturer perfect color match is actually 2000 Toyota Carbon Blue-Black. BTDT re-painting my Venturer side-covers.......perfect match to original color.

          That paint color is also a Code:210.

            Well, the 2000 Toyota Carbon Blue-Black sounds very interesting.

            thanks for your replies.
