Here's More About It:
Up for auction is a very good condition and difficult to find all original 1971 Yamaha XS650 XS1-B. The Yamaha XS650 is a mid-size motorcycle introduced in October 1969,and produced through 1979. When the Yamaha XS 650 was launched it had one of the most advanced engines in its class of large parallel twin motorcycles. The engine and gearbox are unit construction with the crankcase split horizontally for ease of assembly whereas almost all contemporaries in its class in 1969 are either unit construction with a vertically split crankcase or pre-unit construction with separate engine and gearbox. The XS650's engine was used in AMA Professional Dirt Track Racing by national champion Kenny Roberts. The first two model years (XS-1 and XS-1B) were kick start only This well cared for XS-1 is being offered for sale as a very original good running, riding motorcycle with excellent patina. The odometer shows 17,728 miles and I believe it to be accurate. Very hard to find original early XS 650 with kickstart only, front drum brake and original exhaust. The front and rear tires are brand new Dunlop K78 tires, the fuel tank has been professionally sealed w/ Caswell epoxy, both fuel taps and lines have been replaced and a brand new seat installed. All chrome is intact and in average condition, signs of pitting on all chrome parts, with the forks being the worst of it shown in pictures. The original yellow paint and white stripes are in good condition for 48 years old, but there are several blemishes with the worst on the right side of the fuel tank, shown in pictures. All lights work well and lenses are in very good condition. The XS650 engine starts easily and runs great. It sounds nice and smooth, revs well and rides great. The transmission shifts flawlessly. Front and rear brakes work great, all cables are in very good condition, drive chain is in good shape. This motorcycle has been ridden occasionally for years to keep everything working well and kept on a battery tender in a garage when not being ridden. Clean and clear title, inspection and registration has been kept current. VIN S650019656 This is a 48 year old motorcycle, it is not brand new and it will have its quirks. I've done my best to accurately describe its current condition and how it has performed over the last few years of ownership. I do believe it sat in a garage for most of its life since it is in such good original condition. Willing to send any additional photos or videos requested. $500 deposit due at time of auction and full payment due 72 hours after sale. Any questions, please ask!!!
