1980 XS850 Midnight Special

    My brother rode my XS400 and fell in love with something bigger than his 2006 Honda Big Ruckus 250, and finally pulled the trigger on this beaut. It's at the shop now getting rigged up for the season alongside my other project, the 1981 Kawasaki 440LTD. Mine is getting a carb rebuild, and new tires. I just didn't have the time to do it this year (haven't even ridden yet and temps have hit +20 multiple times...).

    Check this peach out! It came with all three seats. $_59 (4).png $_59.png $_59 (5).png $_59 (7).png $_59 (6).png $_59 (3).png

    Anyone ever ridden something like this?

    Yeah I remember the Midnight Special treatment Yamaha used on several models. I like it a lot. Quite frankly I think they stole the idea from a John Player Special. Two years ago I had an XS750 triple in black. Great sounding engine, but too heavy for my liking.

    The triples do make a sweet sound......

    I had an 1100 and that thing was a beast...….

    You or your brother must live nearby. I remember seeing this bike on the Kijiji a little while ago. It looks like a sweet ride!
