Yamaha XV650 Drag Star Classic 1999
One lady owner since 2013, this Drag Star Classic 650 has covered only 1,629 careful miles since 2013. Mileage is now 41,000. The Drag Star Classic 650, the most sought after model, comes with a 170×15 rear tyre, a big fat Harley-type 16in front wheel, stainless steel fork shrouds and a big chrome headlight. This example is 100% original with a near perfect chrome stock exhaust system and wheels, never been messed about with. Overall this is a very nice example of a near 20-year old Drag Star Classic with valuable extras that has been cherished and very well looked after and is only being sold due to not being used enough. Nice easy bike to ride and look after. Everything works as it should and despite being a large bike it is a lot lighter than it looks, very economical on fuel and is easy to manoeuvre and a pleasure to ride. The bike also comes with matching accessories including the windscreen, pillion backrest, rear carrier, saddlebags, original toolkit and a comprehensive Clymer workshop manual. The UK front footrests have been replaced with US spec Drag Star alloy footboards making the bike far more comfortable to ride than with original forward pegs. There is a small script on the left hand side panel that can easily be removed. A phone charger port is wired behind the side panel that can also be used with a battery optomiser. There is no rot under the mudguards, (unlike most Drag Stars), both were removed under sealed and fitted with either stainless steel or original zinc plated Yamaha fasteners. The rubber front brake line has been replaced with one in braided stainless steel, most of the nuts and bolts on the bike, including the wheel spindles, have also been zinc plated while many have been replaced with stainless steel alternatives where possible. The chrome on both wheels is excellent, the spokes are clean and the front disc is in perfect condition. While the red metallic paintwork is mostly original, (a few areas were professionally touched up in 2014), it is in very good condition considering it is nearly 20 years old with just a few small age related marks and the bright metallic colours are not done justice in the photographs. Presently MoT’d until June 2019, but will come with 12 months MoT. firstname.lastname@example.org £2900 o.v.n.o.
