Yamaha XS750 Cafe Racer - 1979
Mileage 1206 (+9774 original donor bike miles)
Originally custom built by Luke Robinson of Robinsons Speedshop in Essex, the donor bike was sourced by the original owner who I bought the bike from in 2014. The original bike had 9774 miles on the clock before it was transformed and a new Smiths Speedo was fitted in the custom build. When I bought the bike it and had it MOT'd the new mileage was 749. I used the bike very little over the next few years, its last MOT was July 2020 and the mileage was 1206. A couple of months ago I got the bike back up and running locally with a new battery fitted, the speedo does need recalibrating now.
Bike runs well and is stunning, a few marks here or there but nothing I could get great photos of. The unmistakable sound of the triple-cylinder is incredible.
The Bike Shed did an article on this bike with Luke back in 2014 but I can't find it now, only thing I have done other than servicing the bike and riding it is move the number plate to the side. 2 sets of keys.
You can see other pics of this bike online
The price is low because i dont want to mess around with offers and is reflective of the buyer needing to get it collected and serviced.
Feel free to call me if you need more info. Collection from Stockport UK
