Yamaha motorcycle [no longer] for sale

1978 or 1979 Yamaha XS750 Special (3 cylinders)
(shown here in front of the Royal Palace in Phnom Penh, Cambodia)

It really is not suitable for the monster potholes, land mine craters, mud and semi-paved highways we have here in Cambodia, but it is a fantastic (and unusual) machine with buckets of power. It's overall in good condition with some non-OE parts.

The stats:

  • Yahama 750 Special, 1978 or '79, I think. Japanese version.
  • 3 cylinder
  • shaft drive
  • formerly dark grey, now metallic blue
  • 15,000 miles on the clock; probably more like 100,000 in the real world
  • not original: footpegs, shocks, upholstery, instruments
  • Needs some detailing, which can be done in Cambodia
  • I can arrange surface shipping, to the port of your choice. Including origin service, freight charge and destination service, it looks like US West Coast would be about $940, East Coast $1000, France $850 or so.

    Please send any offers, questions, bits of information etc to: me.
    You might find some advice at the Yamaha triples home page (that's where the sound you should be hearing is coming from).
