What year is this frame? It looks like an 86-87 750 or possibly an 86-88 1100?

<font size="2" face="Verdana, Arial">correct. but the easiest way to tell is by the noticably thicker 1100 frame.



and the 88= 750 and 89+ 1100 had more of a right angle to the top of the frame than the earlier bikes.

Here's my two cents:
The 86-87 750 (and I assume 85) had a smaller cast section (larger extruded section) than the 86-88 1100.
I spot the 1100 by looking for the cast section to go from the swingarm pivot point to up above the rear motor mounts.
P.S. this is from memory--I don't have my bike or an 1100 in front of me to verify, so I hope it's all correct
