    I finally, thanks to eBay, added the last missing "Nero" color to my now seven bike 1100 Sport collection. This 1997 Sporti has only 1388 miles on the clock, so I'm not sure yet on what I am going to do with this bike. This could possible be the lowest milage 1100 Sport in existence, or at least close to one of the lowest milage ones! This bike is like a new 21 year old bike, absolutely beautiful. I sold my 85 LeMans last week, because I wanted to buy a 93 Daytona versus this 97 Sporti, but I decided at the end to stick with the bikes I'm getting to know pretty good, versus adding something completely new, which I don't know anything about. fullsizeoutput_2044c.jpeg s-l1600.jpg s-l1600.jpg

    I installed new powder coated black wheels, valve covers, and crash bars last night on one of my yellow 97's, and I like it! The wheels and valve covers were powder coated in gloss black, installed new wheel bearings, valve stems, new Dunlop tires, new Brembo Rotors, and brake pads. The new painted front fender was suppose to also be ready for pickup this morning, but it wasn't........ It's going to be another week or so before I get this last part installed in order to get this bike completed for this years riding season. I didn't know if I would like the black valve covers and wheels on this yellow bike, but I think that they pull everything together nicely with the frame, wheels, and rear swingarm being in the same gloss black color coating. I usually don't like yellow on a motorcycle, but I think that the 1100 Sport is one sexy looking bike in yellow!

    1995 Sport 1100 Carb, #35 of the first 50 to the US I think??? The longest trip we did was Philly to NOLA. I got her in the late 90s from The Spare Parts Co.

    I guess that this will be the last group picture that I will post, since the pictures below show you all of the five base colors which were available to purchase from the factory. The black 1100 Sport in the lineup, and shown in the last two pictures, is the 1997 Nero color, which is a black metallic that changes into Bronze depending upon the angle of view and the light hitting the paint. 1994-1996 1100's had a true black painted bike, but I consider my 97 Nero color to cover the true black 1100's, so I won't worry about buying me one of those, unless of course I find me one that I just can't see myself living on without adding her to the stable too! :)

    Just added a 1995 1100 Sport last week to the stable. I love the looks of the golden wheels on this silver bike.

    I found the original purchasing invoice within a stack of paperwork which came with this bike. I love getting a bikes history with the purchase.
