Brutus is in all caps because this thing is a beast in all aspects of the word. Best quote I have ever seen for these bikes is " Takes off like a rocket, Stops like a train, and turns like a cow." Not my quote but really accurate. This bike was worked on by every jack leg owner it had. This is true because I knew all three and refused to work on it myself until they sold it to me... (A fathers original purchase, given to his son, then sold to a friend of the son). I knew what it was and what Yamaha designed it for and just had to wait my turn. Went through every inch except removing jugs or splitting crankcase. Less than 9k when I bought it and now has 16k on the odometer.
1979 Yamaha XS1100 (Blue Black)
Old school original design rear tire with Dunlop upfront. These will be change on next scheduled maint.. I need alot more traction.
Kept it original on purpose. I just cant give up the stock breather box.. It did get a 4into1 header before me.
Shortened rear fender Led lights costume cushion in seat to maintain original look.
Lowered a bit front and rear.
