1981 Yamaha XS650 Cafe Racer

Ignore the angled, artsy photos for a moment, and what you have here is a good starting point to complete a really nice cafe racer. While it has a clear title (lots of eBay bikes don’t), it is missing a few doo-dads that will make it street legal when you try to register it, including the tail light. That being said, this is a beautiful, well executed bike that has a IMHO a very cool paint job. Add an exhaust, some rear-sets and maybe a tach and you’re good to go. Could even more be done to this bike? Yes, but then you wouldn’t be riding it now, would you…

Current price is $1,000 with just under 2 days left in the auction.

1971 Honda CB750 Dunstall-Style Cafe Racer

I’m not going to write a lot about this bike. I’ve got a cut-and-paste from the listing of some of the things done to this bike, and there are a few more pics in the listing if you want to check them out. Beautiful, Beautiful, Beautiful!!!

There are 4 days left in the auction, and the price is currently at $3,950. The seller seems honest, and has good feedback. This is a sweet looking bike that should really be a runner, too.

From the listing…
The engine has been completely rebuilt. It has an 850 big bore kit in it with a real nice street cam in it. The head have new valves, guides, springs, & keepers. The lower half has been rebuilt with new heavy duty chains & all new factory bearings & seals. The bike runs great & pulls really hard for an old girl !!!
The tank is a new fiberglass Dunstall style & has been coated with KBS tank coating for years of use with todays fuel additives. The tail is fiberglass & is completely rubber mounted! (no cracking or un-wanted vibration on this bike.)
The wheels are 18” alum high shouldered laced with stainless spokes & Mich tires.
The forks are completely rebuilt with new Progressive springs, new seals & oil.
The exhaust sounds great, it is a perfect blend of low rpm quiet with high rpm scream.
The bike has been professionally painted using only the highest quality materials. The pics do not do justice to the clarity of this paint job.
