1981 Yamaha XS850H "standard" 3 cylinder motorcycle somewhere between good and very good condition (if you put any faith in the vehicle value guides). Paint and cosmetics are nice and have a good "patina" confirming that this is indeed a 35 year old bike.

The good:
All fluids (engine oil, final drive oil, brake fluid) have recently been changed
Carburetors cleaned and rebuilt with new gaskets and o-rings.
Fuel tank is dent free with good interior condition
Both vacuum petcocks have been cleaned and work as they should
Engine has good compression on all three cylinders (~150+ psi)
New front and rear tires
Front forks rebuilt with all new seals
Bike runs strong through all gears
Electronic ignition was checked and is spot on
New battery installed

The not-so-good:
Tachometer functions, but is very slow. Likely due to hardened grease...which may loosen up...but may not.
Still looking for replacement decals for the side covers

Just passed 10,000 on the odometer this spring, but will likely rise as I continue to ride.

Clean and clear title in my name.

Feel free to email with any questions you have.

I have this posted on craigslist for $1600 but will certainly consider any reasonable offer. I'm located in the Cedar Falls/Waterloo area, but would consider delivering to a local metro area, or meeting halfway.

Thanks for your interest.
