Yamaha XZ550 Project For Sale

I bought this bike in April as a parts bike for my cafe racer build, only to find that it was in great mechanical condition. Since I have done some minor rehab on the bike, but because of the aforementioned cafe project, I don’t have space for it.

I bought it titleless, and have since changed the fluids, done minor rust neutralization on the frame and various parts, fixed the starter, replaced the battery, and done basic vin research (finding that despite the missing title the bike is clean.) The Yamaha Vision gas tank is notoriously bad, and this one is no exception, the tank on it was ruined by rust and I’ve decided to move this one along without seeking out a replacement.

There is no title, front brake line, gas tank, or headlight. So I’ve priced it around the cost of a running motor on eBay, and less than the only titleless bike I could find on there. If you’re looking to do something custom or repurpose a solid motor that sounds great, this is your chance.

Comes with a box of parts specific to this project.

Here is a video of the bike turning over, running, and revving:
