I have a very nice example of a 1973 TX650 (XS650) cafe racer for sale with 14,700 original miles. I put a lot of work and money into this bike over the summer, nd she is running like a champ. Tons of torque and I've been told multiple times by friends that this was the fastest XS they've ridden. All mechanical work was professionally done by Rob Ghislain of Dinosaur Four, specialist in vintage Japanese motorcycles. Idols strong, hifts smooth, true blast to ride. This bike get tons of attention and complements everywhere it goes. The only reason I am selling is because it is way too small for me, nd I have since bought another bike and currently cannot afford to have both.
The following work has all been done in the past few months:
- new custom subframe / rear loop / tail light bracket
- electrical completely redone throughout
- full carb rebuild, esynced and rejetted
- full tune up - valves, hains, ables, oints, iming, ompression, uel lines/filters, il, tc.
- front brake system overhauled and rebuilt
- brand new Shorai lithium battery
- custom fabricated battery tray
- brand new LED taillight
- rebuilt starter switch
- brand new performance pod filters
- custom neutral light
- brand new stainless engine bolt kit
- brand new oil seals
- brand new tach block off
Other upgrades include:
- Pamco ignition system
- updated charging system / regulator rectifier from Mike's XS
- Woodcraft clip-on bars with Brooks leather grips
- RFY shocks
- cafe seat from Dime City
- custom mufflers with built in baffles
- 5 3/4" halo headlight
- bar end mirror
- tires have good tread and plenty of life, irelli in front, unlop in rear
I have a clean Illinois title in hand, nd have receipts for all labor costs. Asking price is $3,800, hich is less than I've put into it. I am open to reasonable offers, ut please no low-balling. Local pick-up only in Chicago, L. Test rides only for those with CASH in hand and a Class M license. You drop it, ou buy it. I also have this bike listed locally and will end the listing early if sold outside of eBay. More photos coming soon.
