The price has gone up

I really hope I wasn't responsible for the price gouge. Give it a week, he may yet take the $500.

No more than $500 for this one. Will have everything wrong with it after sitting that long.

We may have a new member

Well got an email from the owner. I think this is a save. He loves this bike but has no mechanical skills. He would like nothing more than to get it on the road.
I offered to stop by and give him a quick evaluation on the condition.

A save

Looks like a save we are meeting next week Owner is 70 and really does not want to get rid of it. Just does not know how to fix it or where to begin. Just like most of us before we found this site and all the great knowledge everyone offers . I will get him going. Looking forward to a new fellow rider. Thanks to Aches N Pains I have enough spare parts I am sure I have everything he might need to get rolling if something is needed We will post to the Xs11Forum once we get this started. Its my turn to give back on what I have learned the past few years.

Hi Eastcoaster,
You have become New Jersey's XSive Rescue Dude
Glad to hear your Florida trip went so well on the Venturer. If it ever warms up here I will roll mine out and start on the spring projects.
Phil

I have a buddy here in Michigan with a '78 XS1100, and '77 XS750 that wants to get rid of his bikes, but I know deep-down he wants to see them run.
