83 1100 Interstate.
I bought it last night from a "harley guy" that didn't want to mess with it.
It was "Not worth his time".

I'm not going to tell you what I paid for it (because that would just be bragging :smiler: )
Here's a couple of pics I took after I gave it a quick wipe down this morning.











Yes it runs! it has 80K on it.

From just my initial once over, I know that it needs:
Left side cover
Left engine guard
water pump (weep hole weeping oil)
seat (worn)
That's about it as far as I can tell.

Nice Score/Find, Nort!

Something tells me that it was much the same deal as that 1200 that the guy wanted taken from his driveway, that you spotted when we were camping together at Lewis and Clark Resort. ;)

Good memory DB! :cheesygrin:


here's the latest:

I pulled the bike down further and found oil in the coolant overflow tank (water pump).
also saw that carb #3 was dumping fuel into the plenum.
Since I was planning on pulling the carbs and going through them anyway, it's a non issue.
No big suprises with this bike yet.

It's cool that it is un-molested, except for the floorboards and ridiculous heel-toe shifter setup (check that linkage).
I am sure to change that back to stock.



I believe that this motorcycle has never been apart (even to the state is is now) and certainly the carbs have never been off.

A couple more pics:







I really like getting bikes like this.
I just need to fix whats wrong with it and not whatever someone else did to it.

I'll do a compression test tomorrow, go through the brakes and start ordering the parts needed to get it back on the road.

Someone is going to get a pretty nice bike when I'm finished.
Unless I decide to keep it for myself. :)

You don't look to be in Colorado no mo.

That's a nice find norton. Plenty of Hondaline audio and other accessories too, a very good find.

You did well norton, the main thing is the Wing is complete. Good luck with the project, it seems like only a modest amount of work and expense involved.

Orofino, Idaho.
It's pretty cool but doesn't feel like home yet.
We've decided to stay here for the winter and if we want, jump back on the bike and ride again next summer.

(That is if this economy straightens out and we can still afford to.)

As an aficionado of 1100s and a veteran of rebuilding them I can appreciate your lucky find of an unmolested one. Very rare to find one without a bunch of ugly modifications by past owners.
