  • 1980 XS1100 rescue project

    A few months ago I got a 1980 XS1100 that had been outside stored not running for nearly fifteen years. It’s now running and almost ready to ride. A couple pictures here, the one with the “sissy bar” is how it came to me and the other is a couple months after I’ve had it.

    Nice bike!

    Good job getting it back on the road.

    Looks like you preferred to put a 1979 Special seat on a 1980 Special.

      I did put a ‘79 seat on the bike. The original seat, aluminum grab bar and tail light was removed. The ‘79 seat fits without any mounting or interference problems and I installed a conventional fender mount tailight/license setup.
