1986 Yamaha SRX600 Cafe Racer


Up for auction on eBay with only a little over a day left is this nice 1986 Yamaha SRX600 that has been lightly converted into a cafe racer. While it still retains its SRX roots (wheels, tank, etc.), there are some nice mods that make it better than stock without going over the top financially or aesthetically. The best performance mod on the bike is the FZ600 forks and brakes. I’m sure that with the relatively light weight of the SRX600, this bike stops on the proverbial dime. Aesthetically, only you can make a final decision about the Corbin seat or the chromed gas tank, and while I feel bad about the toxic effects of chromium on the environment, the tank does a reasonable impersonation of polished aluminum alloy.

Current bid is $2,000 with 36 hours left, but reserve has not been met. And the seller has good feedback, so it should be a fairly safe transaction…
