For sale is one 1981 xs650. I purchased this with the hopes of creating a cool ride like the ones all over this site. Unfortunately however, that is not the case. Not only do I not have the skills, I don’t have any money. And although plenty of these sweet rides have been built like that, I also have a crappy work schedule, a wife, and five children age ten and under.
I have had a couple friends offer to help, but I am working when they are off. So here it is. Time to $#!t or get off the pot! Bike runs well for being unrestored. Could use some carb tuning. Biggest issues are a couple of oil leaks. First, the gasket behind the starter gear cover is leaking. This is the worst of the two with a slow but steady drip when the engine is warmed up. The second is the head gasket. There may be a drip or two per ride. Nothing serious, just didn’t want to leave that out, seeing as it is a thirty year old bike. As for the price, $500
firm. I live just south of Buffalo NY, and will only do a face to face purchase. Oh yeah, and the title is good.
