1968 Yamaha XS650 1
The vintage 1968 Yamaha XS650 for sale is a one of a kind all original motorcycle that has all of its parts although it will need a complete tear down and rebuild.
I found this vintage Yamaha motorcycle hiding in the berry bushes and had to buy it! I will re-build the bike unless someone buys it who can do it faster and is willing to offer me a fair price for the old classic.

The 1968 XS650 was running when it was parked way back in 1980 and amazingly it still shifts good and rolls, but doesn't crank and run anymore.
These motorcycles are #1 and at the top of the list with collectors for customization in the 21st century, but I would like to see it taken back to it's original factory state. This particular 1968 Yamaha XS650 is actually one of the first ever made of the 1968 models and is very collectible and rare!

Here's some history on the Yamaha XS 650 for sale in this classified. The XS650 was designated the XS-1 when it was launched in 1968. At the time it had one of the most advanced engines in its class of large parallel twin motorcycles. The motor and gearbox are unit construction with the crankcase split horizontally to make for easy assembly. The valves of the XS 650s are operated by a single overhead camshaft (SOHC) whereas almost all contemporaries in its class are operated with a pushrod valve gear.
