I bought this period correct fully color matched and Vetterorized GL1000 from the original owner. Rode it around for a while, but still loved my XS11 more. I sold it to a fellow whom stripped it down and turned it into a racer. He did a good job and the bike looks nice. However, its sad to see original bikes destroyed and never to be seen in that state again. :(
Here are some pics of my Vetterized 1979 Yamaha XS1100 Special. Lots of love went into the rebuild if this gem. Pretty much top to bottom equipped with a Vetter Windjammer IV, Cycle Sound, and Vetter Bags. Everything is period correct, even the cassette deck!
Supposedly one of three made for the CB400F chassis by the original owner who worked at Tracy. Bike sat for more than 30 years and only has 6200 original miles on it. I've done a LOT of work just to make it safe and functional again, but it's time to move it on. There is a matching front fairing, but needs brackets. Runs great.. put 100 miles on it last week.
Saw this on SF Bay Area Craigslist? Love the Tracy bodies!14-06-2019 03:57:01
This bike I've owned since 1972 when I bought her as a used bike with around 1500 miles on her. A 1969 Yamaha DS6C

Wow! Nice little collection. Are you still adding to the pile or downsizing?10-03-2019 16:44:31
My 1966 Yamaha YM1 .I have owned this bike and ridden her since 1988 when I found her as a neglected but complete bike in the garage of a house I went to look at. I restored her in the early 90's and maintained her since. Probably going to sell her soon as I'm now 70 and don't need the work involved in maintaining so many bikes. I have quite a collection of Yamaha two stoke twin road bikes.
Thank you.11-03-2019 23:11:49
Nice restoration.10-03-2019 17:47:15
Been enjoying my 1986 Bimota db1r that I finished last May. Started with a spare factory racing frame and built it into a street bike. Cheers, Adam
Beautiful restoration!10-03-2019 16:36:42
Nice restoration! They are a hoot to ride.14-03-2019 19:12:42
You've got 3 of my favorite Italian bikes! For years I have wanted a 3 1/2, and a Benelli Tordado. I've had my share of Ducs, but haven't scratched the itch on the other 2 just yet. Thanks for posting!27-11-2018 20:16:42
