This week’s eBay searching led us to a low mileage, surprisingly original 1971 Yamaha XS1B, a 654cc parallel twin with just 4,127 miles on it.

According to the auction, this XS1has new tires and runs and rides well. The odometer is not currently working, so there’s the question of how many miles it’s seen since the odometer stopped. Though the pictures are a bit fuzzy, the bike appears to be in nice shape. It looks like it wears it’s orignal paint, the seat appears to be in good shape, and the chrome and metal finishes appear to be pretty decent.
