went and picked up a xs650 locally but when I got it home and actually looked at it I noticed it was a bit different from the later models. I plan on trying my hand at a bottom up rebuild with many new upgrades as I go however the purist in me would rather this find someone who would like to use it on their xs2 restoration. Engine turns freely carbs are getting a quick soak at the moment but they all slid freely before disassembly and only soaking them because I'm a bit anal with cleaning carbs in the winter months as I have nothing else to do while it snows. I'd prefer not to ship the engine and deal with that so hopefully someone in the Midwest would like to take it off my hands. I paid $250 for it all and will still only ask $250 if someone is in need of it. Would be interested in a trade for a later motor and carbs or a set of vm carbs / pamco / Pma system or anything Hugh makes. Hardtail would also be accepted.
