03 1100. bought it for the motor. was an insurance write-off. turns out the engine fits a virago frame, but the output shaft is out board about 2 inches more. too much effort to make it fit, so changed the plan.

craigslist parts to get it through provincial inspection.





now that that ugly mess passed, i rode it last summer, winter i tore it down, now i am here. so close to riding it again

Garage fire?!

When I fabricated the rack to put the trunk on my bike, I had to match weld it in place on the bike so the bolts would line up with the fender holes.

I put one of those Harbor Freight Free shipping blankets (with coupon) over the fender and mufflers so the sparks would not damage the paint and a wet towel over the fender right where I was welding it.

That damn blanket caught fire like it was soaked in gasoline. If I had not been standing right next to the bike and pulled it off, I would have lost the bike.
