1980 XS1100 Special East Peoria IL Blue/Silver

Hello All,
This is not mine, found it on Craigslist. Thought someone might be interested.

https://peoria.craigslist.org/mpo/d/...049334298.html

If I had the money to play with, I'd run up and get it, but I can't stretch it right now. Hopefully, one of you might take a liking to it.

Regards

Having 81 alt. cover suspect it possibly being an 81 model engine.

I didn't catch that, until you made me re-look. Good eye, motoman. It would seem it's more of a parts bike anyway, so the purchaser might wind up with a newer engine, although mileage would be unknown.

Regards

The black valve cover adds to it being an 81 engine.

...and another thing...

Since we are playing "What's wrong with this picture?", how about the black stripe on the footpeg bracket? Isn't that unique to '81?

Maybe the whole bike is '81?
