1979 Yamaha XS 1979 yamaha xs 1100 special clean low mileage xs 11 s rides and runs great


This low-mileage, rust and corrosion-free 1979 Yamaha XS1100 Special deserves more than my resources allow. In the last 1600 miles I’ve owned it, it’s gotten new tires, battery, rubber intake manifolds, air cleaner element, valve-cover gasket, spark plugs, ALL new fluids, a full tune-up, carbs overhauled and synched, valve-clearance and cam-chain adjustment, and front fork overhaul with new seals. This XS11 rides and runs as it should, like a very well-mannered bat out of hell! Very mechanically sound, rust and corrosion-free, excellent condition except for a few cosmetic issues captured well in the photos. WORST of the 6-7 small dents in the tank are shown in 2 photos. The other dings can only be seen in strong lighting when viewed from perfect angles. To re-secure a small screw in the speedometer dial-face, I cut the lens retaining ring and re-secured the ring with a hose clamp. Admittedly funky, at least the still-original speedometer shows the bike’s correct original mileage. One turn-signal BRACKET is slightly bent. Two photos show the bent bracket, one photo with arrows pointing to the bend. The handlebars on the bike are lower rise than original, but the original bars are also included. Also included is a nice padded backrest, the original kick-start lever, and a Clymer manual. This is a NO-RESERVE auction with a low opening bid for an XS11 in this condition. I believe in full disclosure and tried very hard to explain and picture every issue on this excellent, low-mileage bike. Nevertheless, I’m happy to answer questions from prospective bidders. Buyer is responsible for arranging for pick-up or shipping of the bike and included extras, however I will lend support on my end. Thank you for looking, and happy bidding!
