nos 1100

Postby moritz1100 » Wed Aug 29, 2012 5:10 pm



Pretty much a new old stock gl1100 in bits here on ebay ; http://www.ebay.ie/itm/320968198499?ssP ... 942wt_1397

Sounds great, very tempted to grab it. Anyone else worried about every rubber seal and gasket? It hasn't run in 30 years, it's been kept in a good dry garage by the looks of it though. I'm worried that it'll run great for 10 mins and then loads of black smoke starts pouring out of the exhaust, then I'm looking at a complete re-build. On the other hand, imagine if it was fine and I end up with an 11 that's only got 7000 miles. It'd cost me around €400 to get it shipped over so that kind of doubles the price and makes it less tempting.

Thoughts?

Assembly is cool, that's the fun part. I'm just worried about the oil staying where it should..

Wouldn't really be a rebuild.....more of a reseal.
Still a boatload of work!
