Yamaha XS description

I have owned this bike for over 30 years (the mileage is original) and recently completed this mild Cafe project. Very strong

stock engine, runs great. Fresh oil change (Amzoil) and replacable filter, part of the custom oil cooler, and fork oil.

New:  tires, shocks, 4 gal. tank, set-backs, halogen headlight conversion, fork brace, bar-end mirrors.

Cafe seat professionally upholstered on stock XS seat pan (so it flips up like stock).

Awesome front twin disc brake system with SS brake lines and correct master cylinder for the set-up.

Includes all original take-off parts including the excellent original seat and tank.

This is not a restoration, but is a really nice 35 year old bike, with no issues, that shows the appropriate patina (a bike to be proud of).

Clear title in my name. No warranty given or implied. Transport is the buyers responsibility.

Non-refundable $500 deposit required at the auction end (contact me for deposit payment and balance payment).

Bike is being listed locally & may be removed from auction listing if sold prior to auction end.

Thanks for your interest.

I can’t get enough of pictures that capture a specific, hard to define moment; the successful encapsulation of the absolute balls-to-the-wall, life or death commitment that riding a motorbike as fast as possible involves.  We all know. We’ve all been there – even if it’s only a once-in-a-lifetime moment. Maybe (for us mere mortals) it’s that rapidly, yet unexpectedly, tightening left-hand bend with a shitty, mud-covered veneer just at the apex.
