2 more days on the auction so I think I'll wait a while to bid. Don't want to drive the price up!

Oh yea, Some good ideas for the 1100 there. Make em lighter by removing superfluous bits of weight to win races.

I never would have thought of weight reduction by removing those big heavy front BRAKES!!!!!!

You said it Ray!!! When in dought, Bang it down two gears & throw it sideways!
And old_bartender...........your'e right on. 650 twin with 750 top end punch. Not sure if still available or not, back in the day used have kit available.
Oh well, just thought it was cool to actually see one of these great bikes again as I'm kinda partial............
