I'm back!

Back in XS1100 family. Picked up a pair of 79's tonight, very excited to be back in xs family again. One is a full dresser, one not. Both are standards. They were lying over on the ground, I felt sad for them. The dresser is in pretty good shape except bent handle bars and missing the shield for the fairing. Pictures tomorrow

No, you need to post a link from photobucket or some such site.

The fairing is the Pacifico, VERY rare on a '79. That is a much nicer bike to ride because of that fairing. Top speed is down about 5MPH, not the 15MPH you loose with the Windjammer.
Great Score!!

Yeah, the glass is gone but I looked online you can get a replacement so that's a good deal!

Got the one on the trailer started this afternoon, jumper cables and aux tank and she fired up
