650 Yamaha parallel twin. The frame is a hardtail with a 5" stretch. Drum brakes front & rear, 21" up front and a 16" rear. The Yami sprocket has been mated to the 16" to maintain stock sprocket ratios. Forward controls for brake and clutch, suicide shifter. It has Harley fatbob 3.5 gallon saddle tanks, new seat but I don't recall the manufacturer.

It needs rubber and TLC. I have the wiring harness and all the stuff that came from the stock bike.
I also have a clean title.

$1000. Located near Albany, NY.

Dan EDIT: The work stand goes with it; easier on your back.

Bump for a cool project. Our of curiousity what are "forward controls for brake and clutch"? I imagine the clutch goes to the left foot since the left hand has the shifter?

Forward controls refers to moving the footpegs/controls farther forward so that your feet are in front of you rather than underneath you. If you look at the footpeg in the picture you can see a "pedal" and rod connected you the clutch just in front of where the shifter goes into the engine.

I really wish I had the money and space for this but I already have two 2-smoker projects to work on.

For some reason that horizontal bar going from the pedal to the clutch eluded me when I first looked at it. Dumb question :).

Yeah, between the foot controls, hand shifter and drum brakes, you really have to pay attention.

Coolass project, I just don't have the time.

You might put the motor up for sale as is. Flat trackers love those motors. Check to see if the Electric City Riders has a classified section
