Well, here is the final result of the 1996 xv1100 's customised restauration. We all have our own "style" in a bike, but I feel if you adapt it to your taste at the same time that you enhance it's original design attributes, the attachment is more intense. It was designed for comfort, reliability, and bold esthetics combined with serious G's when you want to or need to, she can make anyone happy.
Always Something I realised there was something missing on the restore. The master Cylinder was not in the correct position because the original bars were on an angle compared to these almost straight bars. And I had paint touched the switches, but for some reason they looked old. So I bought a master Cylinder Chrome set for these bars and new swiches. ..... Now it's complete!
Rear brake cover . Just got cover back from rechroming. This was the last piece to get done. The great thing about living in Portugal is that everything here is cheap, or I should say inexpensive with the exception of fuel. This cost me 20€. ....Did I say I love chrome? I guess you have figured that out by now 🙂.
Had to replace damaged piston.
