YAMAHA XS650 Club of Australia - Home

Ron Jarmyn

My two 1972 XS2's. One is road registered, with personalised Victorian plates "XS TWO". It won "best Bike" at the AGM Meeting held at Phillip Island a year or so ago. I bought this bike via a Club web-page advert from a member in Qld, while waiting for the delivery of the second machine, which I purchased via eBay from Idaho. I understand that I'm the third owner of the Qld- sourced bike, which was imported by the Qld Club member from the original owner in Canada. The eBay sourced bike has only 9,000 miles on it and has the original (very age deteriorated) front tyre on it. It cost me $3,200, plus about $1,000 more for freight. I've purchased a full set of Australian-spec burgundy painted "tin-ware" from Geoff Bamford for this bike. This second bike is a "work in progress", as far as registration goes, which is why it's up on the work table. Regards, Ron Jarmyn Member Number 721
