1976 Yamaha XS650

When we first got this Yamaha XS650 it looked - let's say rather boring. After countless hours of sweat this beauty of a cafe racer was born. We treated her with a new, longer fuel tank, clip-on handles, minimalistic instruments, cafe racer seat and open air filter just to name a few. Furthermore the wiring harness needed some restoring as well as redirected back brake and shift lever for a more cafe racer-like seating position.
