Extremely rare 1971 Yamaha XS650.
On Ebay, “1971 was the first generation of this iconic bike, and it quickly became known in it’s day as “The Triumph without the trouble”. It was made painstakingly similar to the bonneville in aesthetics and overall design, but much more reliable, the lack of which is what ultimately led to the demise of the British motorcycle industry, but I digress!
This meticulously well kept beauty has only 10,000 miles on it.
It was fully rebuilt from the ground up, mocked up with an original Dunstall fairing, Dunstall pipes, Tomaselli clip ons, custom rear sets.. this bike has it all, and it is fast as hell. The frame was sandblasted and painted, all aluminum polished, wheels have new spokes, there is not a single bolt that was bypassed in the building of this machine… too much to list.
You will go to vintage meet ups with the most elite bikes and you will still steal the crowd, not to mention that performance-wise this thing will lay waste to those CB750’s and Triumph’s. Especially through the canyons” On Ebay.
