Went to pick up a rough '81 Midnight Special for a cafe bike this morning and decided on this '79 instead, with title.

Won't start but I think it's too nice to chop up, what do you think?

Around 1997 or 98, I bought 79 XS1100 Special at a yard sale for $300 in Dallas, TX. It was titled but didn't run. It was all dressed out with a windshield, package rack and color matching saddle bags. Replacing a blown fuse and taping over the bare wire that caused it solved the not running part. I really liked it. Lots of power! I sold it when we moved to Atlanta in 2001. I wish I had kept the XS and sold something else.

That's a great story
