Yeah fix that tail pointing to the sky and any other things you don't like and ride that thing..  Looks like it is clean otherwise.

Oil jets under piston is an old dirt track trick at least since the 60's

May have been a dirt track trick but Suzuki were the first to use it on a production bike with oil cooling. How did the get oil jets in dirt trackers though or are you talking Chevy motors with oil feed drilled to squirt on small ends?
That's a German streetfighher style, shows you only ever ride on one wheel so extreme angle is 'right' Being British, 'we' invented streetfigters way before the rest of Europe and think it looks stupid (and is real stupid when you get caught in the rain)

Rods drilled in a "Y" style, directed to spray underneath the piston. Found it in a bsa engine here in sweden and had it explained by an old dirt tracker, apparently very common.. so the japs copied that as well and those german streetfighter with the "tysk-ass", damn they dont look right..

I´m thinking about getting this ugly streetfighter I found not far way from my hometown and changing back the angle of the seat, repaint it and ride the ish out of it.
Really an eye-sore right now.
Its a 1100 built in 1989.What do you think?

Looks like half a "bosozoku" style motorcycle.  Apparently was a thing, or is a thing, in Japan (and this is a mild example)...

If its been ridden like its been designed to, as in constant autobahn wheelies, dont buy it. Noone sane buys old wheelie machines with worn out gearboxes and cranks run with limited oil supply.

thats what I fear, checked the facebook profile of the seller and he´s the lowered VW Gti kind of guy, young and probably relentless :)
he actually says that the machine never ran and he never had time to clean the carbs and change the battery...i call bullshit.

Hehe, good call i think. This type of bikes are worth close to nothing in sweden

Interesting, never even heard of it previously even with guy's I knew 'back in the day' who raced Triumph twins with just about any mods you could think of (trying to stay 'competitive' with Suzuki/Kawasaki engined Rickman, et al framed bikes) I would think 'Y' oil-ways would be more for cylinder lube though as even a very shallow angle will not direct much to the underside of piston crown? (small end will be better lubricated from piston skirt scraping oil off cylinder walls and some will hit underneath piston.. Piston acceleration with te relatively long stroke motors would probably negate much cooling effect but I have seen many 'pretzeled' BSA/Triumph rods due to small end seizing (sen it on XS650's also)
The oil jet pointing at piston crown was actually copied from late 1920's ~ 1930's aircraft system. I'm not sure who used it first but was 'kinda' well known by time Rolls Royce designed the Kestrel . There is a lot of 'declassified' research available from NACCA, NASA , various defence ministries, etc, the 'trick' is to find whats useful and apply it to a different form of engineering (I think I may have 'invented' a new form of wind powered generator - unless Tesla did it first 100 yrs ago  ;D )
