Need some pointers 78 Yamaha XS 1100 discussion forum:
Need some pointers

Need some pointers 
Angel Maldonado said 2008-07-08 12:33:26 
I recently bought a 1978 XS 1100 and I want to do a major overhaul on this baby and make it look as if it were an 08 model cafe racer. The biggest part of my overhaul are the front forks and the swingarm. What newer model set of front forks will fit? What newer model swingarm will fit without major modifications to the braking system? Also, how can I change it from shaft driven to chain link? Please e-mail at madaudio_1368@yahoo.com with any of these answers. Thank you.
