    Default New guy in Lake Orion

    Heya all, found the board from a link on craigslist. I've got a '78 Yamaha XS1100 that's in the middle of a rebuild. I need to rejet the carbs and sync everything as well as sort out the wire harness. I'd damn well better be back on the road this spring. This winter is making me nuts.

    This is what I started with


    This is what it looked like last year after I started working on it.


    Here is where I am now

    Welcome man! Nice looking bike. I'm trying to find a 70's-80's metric to work on now too.

    Very cool! Nice seat. Who did it?
    Any chance you still have the old fairing? It would look good on my ol Kawi.
