1979 XS1100F Standard, bullet bike (2015)

Here is a preview from this chapter of the eBook Project XS11 

This is my first XS1100 standard. They called it the XS ELEVEN. Some say it is called the Eleven because of the 1100 cc engine, others say it is because this was the first stock bike to break the 12 second quarter mile. The eleven ran it in 11.xx seconds, making it the fastest bike of it’s day…….

The bike has been sitting since 1986…….


It took a lot of work to get this one running but I learned a good bit about some new issues that were interesting challenges…..
