    Unfortunately, sadly, hopefully not regretfully, I'm selling my XS400. Its been an AMAZING learning experience, loads of fun, and I really hope to get another someday. For now, its taking up too much room in the old garage. Plus, I have a lot of other things on my plate right now, and time isn't one of them.

    So for sale: A 1982 Yamaha XS400. Its in various pieces right now, but to my knowledge its 97% complete. I say 97% because I can't totally in good faith say that its all there. But there is a large percentage of the parts. I will part out if enough items get spoken for. You pay shipping. Unfortunately, that limits this to a somewhat local sale. I could deliver within a few hundred miles for the right price. I'll say that if I can get enough items spoken for, I would possibly part it out. here's a rough breakdown of parts:

    $50 wheels: OG rear 16" with good condition (under 1k miles) tires, and also 2 earlier XS400 (SOHC) wheels. 3 total rims (think of the possibilities!)
    $250 engine: is complete (carbs, uncut/low rust exhaust, complete airbox, etc) and ran as of October. Compression around 140 psi in both cylinders. I posted a video somewhere. I was hoping to make an Arduino-based ignition, but that didn't work out for various reasons. Maybe I'll try again someday, but not with this :(
    $20 frame: uncut, but added/welded material to top so I could sit higher. Im tall. You could remove and maintain the integrity of the frame if you wanted.
    $10 seat: yep. Great condition.
    $50 Tank: You better believe it. Painted. Zero rust inside.
    $40 Keys: get a load of this. Same key for ignition, tank, helmet lock, and fork lock. I think I have 2.

    I feel like this is a pretty good deal, and I'd love to pass it on. I'm happy to take offers, let me know. Thanks!

    Sure! Just checked–I totally made a mistake, i dont have the front for the 1982 XS400 DOHC! I do have the rear. Theres the 19" and 18" from what I believe is the SOHC XS400.

    Hoping to move this stuff. I'd go down to $300 for the lot, if its to a good home. Feel free to make an offer!

    John, I thought you had a SOHC bike. A dohc tank will not fit.

    Not without modifications. I wonder how difficult it would be

    It's a totally different type tank. It's made for a different style frame. With enough work and mods any tank could be used but welding and cutting would need to be done.
