Here's a 1981 Yamaha XS400 Special. The bike only has 2532 original miles! I just cleaned the carbs. put fresh plugs in and it runs pretty good. It needs a battery (I had it running with a battery from another bike) and a few other things. The carb boots are starting to crack so I would replace them- the bike hesitates if you crack the throttle too quickly and I think this is the cause. The headlight is out but I think I have another bulb. I also have the fork boots but haven't had a chance to put them on. The signals need a bulb or 2 but the taillight/ brake light works. The electric starter has been disconnected but it kick starts easily. The front brake caliper was frozen so I retro-fitted an earlier caliper on. bled the system. and it works great. The tank is clean inside but has a few dings and a cracked emblem. The tires are decent but have some cracking. The bike doesn't leak any fluids. I have a clean title and a key for the bike (fits  the ignition. gas cap. and seat/ helmet lock). Overall the bike is a nice. clean. low mile. original example. It would be a good beginner bike with a little work. or would be a great start to a custom bike build. I have another I'm making into a Brat/ Tracker. They share some of the same parts as the XS650's and some of the 650 parts can be converted over (I put am XS650 front end on the other 400 I have). They are very peppy little bikes. light with a good amount of power. and they have a 6 speed gearbox which is cool. I have another front end and a box full of parts from another XS400 that can go with the bike. I might even have the right hand controls with the missing electric starter button for the bike. I need a paypal deposit of $300 within 3 days of the auction's end. I have the bike listed locally so I reserve the right to end the auction early. I'm located in Kingston NY but can deliver the bike within 100 miles for $1 a loaded mile. Shipping is the responsibility of the buyer.
