Hi, Great website, glad I stumbled onto it! This is the only picture I have
right now, my pc fried the motherboard and this picture is actually the
wallpaper from my son's pc. It was taken this spring at a bike show hosted by
Hooters. My son had to have his picture taken with our waitress, (whom he fell
in love with). I had actually spent about an hour writing the history of this
bike when my son needed to use his pc
and it locked up on him, (of course, I didn't save it first). I don't have the time today to start again so I'll give you the basics you ask for, then write the history another time and send it on.
I built her out of the crate, totaled her, rebuilt her, sold her, bought her back, restored her, sold her again, bought her back again and just completed a 4 year frame-up restoration/modification project on her.
Here's what I've done to the engine in my 1100F: 1123cc ceramic coated/moly coated Wiseco pistons, WebCam H-5 cams, Kaz Yoshima head w/polished valves, RD springs, Falicon SuperCrank, 36mm Keihin CV Flatslides, hand fabricated V&H SS2R pipe, Accell coils & wires, Barnett clutch, Murdoch undercut tranny, all new bearings, tensions & slippers, walnut shell blasted the cases & re-painted everything, etc., etc.
Haven't dyno'ed her yet but several industry buddies estimate 160 - 170 bhp. In my experience, that's a bit optimistic.
I graduated from AMI in '75, was one of the 1st 100 Register Honda Tech's in '78, was a District Service Manager for American Honda until '90 and now own my own business called, For Hondas Only. I road raced from '85 - '87, built all my own engines and chassis and have built many, many hotrod engines over the years. This motorcycle has quite a colorful history that I'd like to share with you and other F owners so
I'll try again to write it in the next few days.
