Passin' Through's '86 XV1100 Bobber

Post by Passinthrgh » Sun Jul 17, 2016 1:27 am

I bought this bike about a year ago, in approximately it's present condition. A previous owner had done a pretty rough "bob job" on it. So far I've repaired some awful wiring, added turn signals back, and rebuilt the carbs. I'm in the process of having the wheels and some other parts powder coated, putting on drag bars, and looking for a battery box/hide-all-the-electricals solution.

I've got some of those dollars earmarked for forward controls! I can't pm you yet because of my noob status.

It is pretty good. The handle bars take a little getting used to. I switched to a xv750 tank and now having some fuel issues, running a little lean I think and maybe one of the bowls runs dry.
