This Yamaha XS 650 Special has only 6,202 original miles! Bought this 2 years ago from an estate sale where it had been stored idle in a garage for at least 3 decades. Had only 1,800 miles on it then. The brakes were serviced by a local shop with new pads, fluid and they work now. The paint was a little dingy from years of sitting under layers of dust. I sanded and painted white, not a pro job but no drips! I also had new Michelin tires installed and the oil has been changed twice. I changed the handlebars to lower profile but have the original if someone wants them. Seat is perfect, chrome is very good, everything works as it should. The choke leaver fell off but I just hold open to warm up. There is a slight oil drip from head gasket only after a really long ride but this can probably be fixed easily. Battery is new this summer. Starts every time with electric starter, also starts with the kik but I never use that. I’m selling because I lost my garage and really don’t want this bike to be outside! Have a cover that comes with it too. Would be great as an original or as a project cafe racer. Have 2 helmets that will come with it if you want them. Lots of life left in this beautiful bike. The engine sounds great!
