Here’s a nice looking 1981 Yamaha XS650 for sale in Minnesota.
It’s all done and done well. I just don’t see a $6,000 bike here. I hate the racing numbers, but those can be removed.
But more to the point, you can buy this XS650 built by Vintage Steele for $5,000. That Vintage Steele bike is arguably a cooler bike and it’s $1,000 less.
The $6,000 price point is a difficult one for these old bikes. There’s a lot to choose from when you get over $5,000.
This site doesn’t make money. I’m not doing this because I think I’m going to get rich. I like motorcycles. I have a background in journalism and I enjoy writing. I put all of that together and this website popped out.
Having said that, I would like to cover my costs and so I sell t-shirts, enhanced builder pages, and I come to you with hat in hand asking for a couple of bucks.
If you can’t afford even a dollar, don’t sweat it.
