    Too bad they put those skinny little tires in those tanks!

    that bike looks clean and well maintained, but i'd still feel better around $2k. how long has it been posted? offer 1950 and see what they say.

    funny how yamaha was consistent some years with their paint schemes, but not others.
    all 1997:

    I've pretty much given up on finding an XT350
    Every time I spot one, it's gone before I can get there... Except for the 1985 the guy wants $2800 for...
    I think it would be a great sub-in for my DT200.
