Out of curiousity

Are there any shops in the US that rebuild XS1100's?
I seem to remember seeing a comment from a few years back about one out on the west coast but I'd like to find something east of the Mississippi....

Funny that you should mention that

I find it's easier to keep my mouth shut or fingers away from the keyboard and be thought a fool rather than proving it, repeatedly. I must have half of the site bookmarked, starting with the 'tach...

Key Code

That question is sitting out there like a hanging curve ball over the center of the plate.

That was my first thought also

No, there is nothing internal you could have damaged by slamming the deck except for the front wheels. I'd check them just GP.

The fuel system is a gravity feed most likely and gas would leak...

Pull it, strip it and blow on new paint.

Bead blasting is clean

I've been contemplating getting a bead blaster sans dust collection system as it's going out back and I don't care where the dust goes.

I'm tempted to make a two day drive.
Fortunately just tempted, I have enough on my plate already.

Did the fender fit
