Nice Fiberglass Cafe Racer Seat on eBay

I found this nice-looking cafe racer seat on eBay this afternoon. There’s only a couple of hours left though. Hopefully, the seller will repost it again…

Specs: seat is 8 1/2″ wide at front, 9 1/2 wide at hump, 28″ long, seat area is 16″ long


1972 Yamaha DS7 250cc

This is a really nice, completely stock precursor to the famed RD series of motorcycles. I almost feel bad posting it, because to start chopping at this bike is going to ruin a well-kept example of a bike from the early 1970s. There isn’t much to write about this one since it has no modifications. There are a couple of dents in the tanks, and in one of the photos you can just see the battery acid damage to one of the pipes.

My friend Paul has estimated a reserve price somewhere between $1200 to $1500. Good luck bidding on this…
