The Yamaha XS650 is a well-known classic medium displacement standard. Produced between 1968-1985 (though the US stopped getting them in 1983), they weren’t a game changer but I’m sure plenty of you readers used to have one. Here are two version that present a dilemma – to go with stock or with a mild custom?
This mild custom was built over 3 years and is claimed to have been professionally built and a show winner – though who knows what show. Find it for sale near Rolling Meadows, Illinois for $4,350 here on Craigslist. Not much information is given in the listing, but it’s interesting to see the differences compared to…
…this stock bike, which has 7,000 miles and is claimed to be in great condition. It’s original with the exception of a tail rack and trunk. Find this for sale here on Craigslist in Byers, Colorado for $3,750.
