1980 XS1100LG Midnight Special #3 (2016)

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

April 2016

I had been looking for another project bike for months when I hit the mother load! I found 2 Midnight Specials for sale by the same owner in the state of Indiana. I was excitedly looking forward to the road trip!

AT 3:45 AM Sunday morning Frank and I jumped into my van and headed off to Lyford, INDIANA! It really wasn’t a bad trip at all. Frank and I are old friends and I enjoyed the camaraderie as always….

I have to admit that I was pretty disappointed in what I saw. I wasn’t surprised at how rough the parts bike was but I was expecting at least one of the bikes to be in better shape than what they were.


….. and I forgot to put the horns back on. BUT all in all, the bike ran good and the major work on it seems to be DONE! (and it looks good too!)
