1976 Yamaha XS650 Cafe Racer


Up on eBay right now is this beautiful 1976 Yamaha XS650 done up as a fully-faired cafe racer. If the stickers are removable, you would have the option of cleaning it up a bit so you could enjoy the Kenny Roberts replica paint job with the distraction of pretending you are a sponsored racer. There are a ton of pictures in the eBay listing, but I didn’t bother copying them all over the posting. I also listed the key features of the bike as shown by the seller. As always, ask the seller any questions you might have before bidding…

    Full fiberglass fairing
    Fiberglass solo seat
    Fiberglass fuel tank
    New Gustufsson wind screen
    Tomasselli clip-on bars
    Bates rear-set controls
    GP-style shift pattern
    New brake pads and sprockets
    New Pirelli Sport Demon V-rated sport/race compound front and rear tires
    (Seller is) assuming that it has high-comp pistons and he/she believes a Weber “Web” cam
    High performance 2 into 1 pipe
    Twin Mikuni VM round-slide carbs with screened velocity stacks
    Oil cooler
    Period mag wheels
