New project bike: Yamaha XS 850

28 April, 2008 (05:09) | Uncategorized

Just rolled a new project int my shop today. It’s a 1980 Yamaha XS 850. This is one of the few three cylinder bikes of it time, and is actually an interesting find. Three cylinder, air cooled 850cc engine, three hitachi carbs (oddity), overhead cams. 79hp from the factory! It’ll either get some serious love or become the next electric motorcycle.
