    And a shaft. That would have to be a '79 1000L, 750L, or a tiddler.

    I agree with the owner. The bike was not a bike now it is. A running bike has a lot more possibilities than one with a stuck motor. I might fix up a running bike, but not to tear the engine down.

    I had an '83 1100E a while back. It was peppy.

    Why not see how she looks with side covers? The rear of the '82-'83 tank has an odd look naked.
    1982 GS1100E V&H "SS" exhaust, APE pods, 1150 oil cooler, 140 speedo, 99.3 rear wheel HP, black engine, '83 red

    2016 XL883L Two-tone blue and white. Almost 42 hp! Status: destroyed, now owned by the insurance company. The hole in my memory starts an hour before the accident and ends 24 hours after.

    I was gonna say the same thing. Maybe cut them down about half the stock height.

    Had a V&H 4 to 1 on it that I reduced down to 1 3/4". Give it a little back pressure. It's loud without any muffler, but sounds fantastic at full throttle.
