Are those special pipes? Or did they have special pipes on the 81 standard?

I think what he was saying was they didnít all come as venture models. That was the Xs11 standard for that year also. Not everyone got the bag and windshield version. Iíd just like the big tank and maybe some hard bags that I could put on if I needed them! I donít think Iíve ever even rode a windshield bike. They always got ripped off as soon as I got them home. Lol
But yeah, that does look all kinds of messed up.

Well, the seat you eluded to IS the original Venturer seat.

It looks like the pan is missing, and so are the rear turn signals, the fork ears are upside down and ya gotta love those duct tape side covers. hey itís got some nice pod filters. But they are all simple things to fix.
