  • For Sale EOI: My XS 250 Cafe Racer Project

    I'm not actually in the country to sell it at the moment, but when I return I'll be looking to sell it straight away, I will be needing the funds.

    You can read the whole thread here:
    http://www.perthstreetbikes.com/foru...d-xs250-80150/

    I've poured easily over $2500 into this thing, including (off the top of my head):
    -Powdercoated frame and swingarm
    -Mikuni VM 32 carbs (not fitted but come with the purchase)
    -Brand new tyres (forget off the top of my head, good ones though)
    -TP clip ons
    -New gaskets for the whole engine
    -New shocks
    -New sprockets and chain
    -New brake pads and braided lines
    -New XS 650 handlebar switchblocks
    -Tank cleared of rust through electrolysis
    -Air pods
    -New indicators

    Work left to do
    -Probably make a better battery holder
    -Mostly electrical fault finding, there's been a lot of wire splicing to match up with non XS 250 parts
    -Needs new throttle cable
    -Rear brake line needs to be attached
    -A handful of screws missing

    That's all I can think of now, will be returning in mid August. Would say the project is 80-90% done depending on buyers skills. Chasing about $1000 (hell even if you just strip it for parts it's a good deal).

    PM for those that are interested.

    Kind regards,

      Is that a 'Yes I will buy it' in disguise? ^_^

        mayyybeee...
        Nah, I still need to find 600 dollars for my car by october...
        so I'm not going to be able to afford a bike unfortunately. My boyfriend was like "ooohh"
        and told me to find another grand by august.
        Sorry Bushie. But I probably won't have the funds- if I did I'd probably buy it though.
        Also- photos at all?
        It probably wouldn't fit all 6'2'' of me either....
        edit: re-looked at pictures and remembered I read the ENTIRE thread last year in december. It's a good looking bike... I wish I had an extra grand lying around... : /

          BUMP, price drop to $700. Need this gone! Either finish it off or use it for parts.

            Photo's Bushy?
            I'd die 3 times over if I bought it cause the wife says six bikes are enough but I'm sure it would be snapped up with photo's.
            Good luck.

                Well- I have enough money for my car now- but not an extra 700 lying around for a motorbike
                Sorry Bushie. Hopefully it goes to a nice home

                    I would be keen on the clip ons, or the clubman bars you had for a while, if they're still around!
