Well I am in Eugene Oregon, got any here? I ran into some nice people that told me about their club and they meet everyday Friday at this coffee shop. Was going to head there once I had my bike. Oh and just to give everyone a chuckle here. I do own a motorcycle project. Here is what should look it. Someone wrecked it, so it has no front forks. Got a bit to do before it is road worthy, but it is only a 250, good for running to the store, that is about it lol

well I didn't get that one. Seems he had it on Ebay and it sold today. But I now know why that happened. It was so I would get the right one! I found me a necked 1978 1100, as detdrbuzzard had so colorfully asked on the other one. It was owned by a lady, she had it lowered so my feet actually touch the ground. They replaced the stator and timing belts recently. It even has purple led lights on the motor so it glows at night. I will get a pic of it tomorrow and post it.

if it's a '79 or earlier it's a 1000 wing, all were nekkid and had to be dressed. some guys have put 1100 motors in 1000 frames, some guys have put 1200 motors in 1000 and 1100 frames

Don't worry, kat; most of us aren't as creepy as Chopin/Lee!

Welcome to the GWOF! It never ceases to amaze me how many GL1100s are out there and in good shape and running regularly! And their owners are so devoted to them! I have an '83 GL1100 with a Windjammer fairing, but am taking a break from it to work on my '95 GL1500, my primary ride, and my '85 GL1200 Aspencade to get it sold soon. Then I'll bring the 1100 back to my shop for completion or sale as a parts bike. Hell, even a GL1100 parts bike is worth $1,000 in dam near any condition!

If that bike you're looking at runs as good as it looks, I'd buy it. You're not going to get hurt getting into it for $1,700 provided it runs well and the critical timing belts are fresher than original and set somewhat right. We can help with where to get parts if needed and maintenance work-arounds if stock parts are no longer available. Compared to my GL1500 and GL1200, I find the GL1100 light to handle. No need to be an Amazon to handle a GL1100.
