Carbs were cleaned and adjusted. Front brake caliper had to be unfroze along with cleaning the caliper and flushing the brake system. I had to make new brackets to attach aftermarket front blinkers and new battery. The gas cap had to be worked with to make it usable to get gas in it. Installed a new petcock. The bike was brought to me with carbs, tank, etc off so connecting all the new vacuum lines and all required some research to get them connected correctly. I also installed a one way check valve on the fuel petcock for the vacuum actuator to keep the engine from stalling. I used all but one screw and bracket which was in the box of parts when I got the bike.

Here it is: the one you have been waiting for all these years!

I bought the VT1100C2 new on March 18 1995. So it is exactly 25 years old.
Honda floorboards, backrest and rack
National Cycle windshield and spotlight bar
Vance & Hines Classic exhaust
Dynojet kit.
Whitewall tires.
Moved rear turn signals back to taillight bracket.
Everything else is stock original and I kept all the stock parts.

80,000 km and bike has never required a repair except flat tire.

I was going to include a photo of my original registration papers from March 18 1995 with 1km on the bike but notice the one photo restriction. Do you think it might be interesting to post that photo here or on one of the other forums?

This is Lucille. My 2002 Spirit 1100. I just finished building her into what it is today.
I made the exhaust, deleted all the fenders and factory turn signals and tail light. Blue Collar Bobber seat kit, Blue Collar turn signals. No name bars from Amazon, and no name grips from EBay. Dynojet stage1 jet kit, and a thorough carb tune. Shinko triple 7 wide whites... she was left to linger by the previous owner, so I rescued her and built her into this. At 36k miles, flawless running and performance. She always starts up and carries me wherever I want to go.

I call her Candy-0 (for candy orange), and the fact that I think she's SWEET :) She's a 2006 Shadow Spirit 750 with a little over 10k miles. Bought her from the 2nd owner who purchased it from his buddy (to help him in his time of need), but then sold it to me instead of back to him...lucky me!!! I've removed stuff and added stuff...this is her now. Sorry for the poor background in the pic :(

V&H Cruzer pipes
Metzeler ME 888 whitewalls
Memphis Shades Batwing fairing w/ new 5" spoiler windshield
Honda leather saddlebags
Kiwav mirrors
