Fall is here, winter is on the way, and depending on your climate, the time may be drawing near for pondering what you're going to work on all winter when it's often too cold to ride. Though it looks to be in fairly decent shape, this 1975 Yamaha XS650 looks like a perfect candidate for a little winter "freshening."

According to the auction, the bike runs, shifts and stops just fine, and all teh lights work properly. The seat has been be recently recovered, and though the clear coat on the tank is peeling, the owner thinks this could be fixed by a good paint and body professional without repainting the base color on the tank, thus keeping the bike more original.

Several of us around the office have had the chance to ride an XS650, and though they're decidedly not your average Triumph, that does have it's advantages also. This auction doesn't appear to have a reserve, and so far it looks like it might go for a pretty affordable price.
