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…

1987 Yamaha SRX600 Cafe Racer

For those of you down under, I found this well used, but reasonably priced and nicely modified SRX600. It’s got some motor work, clip-ons, and would be a great starting point for a cafe racer build-up. The motor only has 10K kilometers on it, but the chassis has 31,000 kilometers (I think that is like 75 non-metric miles 😉 ). This will be a fun bike once it is cleaned up a bit. Check the listing for more info if you are interested…
