hey Les, do you remember the thread here a few months ago, guy totally modified his bike, pretty sure it was an 1100
put a large..21"? front wheel, solo seat, nicely painted blue, had some really nice professional looking photos... ?
He put straight handlebars on it, and had to stretch over the tank to ride, but still had forward pegs.
I cant remember his name and I dont know what to search for to find the thread
EDIT: never mind Les, I found it - V1100km his bike
this might give you some inspiration on what can be done with an 1100 that needs a new front end:
