I had the 1969 version of the 120 Roadrunner...got me thru my first year of HS when I got my permit/license.

I thought maybe they'd be the same bike, but I don't see the dual range lever on the left case. Mine was an 8 spd / dual range, with an 'endless loop' shift pattern.
From neutral, down for first...down again for 2nd, 3rd, 4th - and down again you were in neutral. Up for 4th, 3rd, etc.

Great little bike, had the same rotary valve engine that was a strong runner.

Once I had my license though, I craved something big enough to go places and bought my X6 Hustler.
These 120's are cool though. I think this one might be newer than a '64 though, maybe a '67.

I know, just adding a little info the op left out. As it does make a slight difference to some, especially parts ordering for one or the other. I had one, functionally they should be about the same... but too bad it isn't a xs1100 standard that would be a deal for me. It will still go forever and looks like it doesn't need anything, it would be a good bike for someone

I like the XS1100 'standard' too, the lines are timeless and tasteful. Same with the original XS750 triple (vs. the Specials).

A riding buddy in Vegas had three 1100's, two were essentially parts bike to keep the nice one running - they were all tired and had seen many miles and below average care....so they were in the beater category to me.

Still pretty strong though. I rode his once out in the SoCal desert and the spindly fork tubes were a little sketchy - but it was a solid bike

YAMAHA XS11 1979 MOTORCYCLE 1100cc 4cyl - $2000 (Pueblo)



I have to sell this great motorcycle to help pay for college and a wedding.
I'll be sad to let it go, but I have to sell my Yamaha and my old 4x4 ford.

It's perfect twin sister just sold May 18th in Chicago on ebay for $7,700.00
with 11 bidders and 31 bids. I know that is Chicago and I know that is ebay,
still that's significant value for someone's almost perfect 34 year old bike.

All the old bikes I looked at had the same old problem - bad carburetors.
After more than 20 years, the rubber diaphragms inside the carbs got holes
and cracks.
They really couldn't run right no matter what you did. So, I
invested $400 ($100 each) in having theYamaha's stock carbs rebuilt with new diaphragms.
The bike is all set for the next 20.

This 34 year old classic isn't perfect, but from 3 feet away she looks every bit
as good as the one on ebay - same stock burgundy color with gold pinstripes,
same perfect seat, and same brilliant chrome.
And, this Yamaha runs incredibly strong and amazing with four cylinders, 1101cc, and 95HP.

Didn't get the original owner's manual or tool kit.

That is a good deal. Would have to seriously consider buying it if I were in Colorado now.

Any one know this guy or bike?

I found this on the Denver Craig's List.

http://denver.craigslist.org/mcy/3895309281.html

Any one local to the bike that might know about it or the seller?
Here's the ad:

Hi
I am posting this add for a 2008 Super Duke 990 R w/4300 miles on it I just put brand New tire on it. Excellent condition bought it brand new from dealership for 15,999 New. It has been covered and in storage 99% of time I am selling because I just recently lost my job in the oil business and need money to pay rent. I am extremely motivated to sell. My loss is your gain. No Joy rides must have Motorcycle endorsement and serious buyers only. There were only 800 of these bike made in 2008 so if your looking for a great fast bike you'll really like this on. The bike is being kept in Aurora I currently live in city park downtown.

Thanks Chris
