DJ, That’s a really nice 750, I have a 77. It’s funny that when they came out they were considered such huge bikes at around 500lbs. Getting off the fjr and the 750 feels like a mini bike.

The brakes at that time were heralded as so great state-of-the-art and now they just feel as powerful as dragging your feet. But they are really fun bikes, I bought the very 1st 75 750 super sport sold in my area (I wish I hadn’t sold it) and boy I was really hot stuff! Anyway congrats DJ, great bike !

Here is my XS2 Yamaha 650. I completed this bike somewhere around 2010. Pretty much stock. All my bikes are ridden. Hard to say what the best ride is. Every time you get on it it is so different than the modern bikes. Brakes tend to fade so its more of a cruiser. One of the best features on the bike is the reverse mode. Lets see how many of you know what that is

Nice looking bike. From the pics, it's not been 'reversed', looks great stock.

The bike actually has a reverse while running. Great for backing out of tight spots. Nothing to do with anything on the bike reversed.

Feet down, push forward ! I really like the 650 Yamaha’s small, light, just fun ! The black/gold 75’s are my favorite year. Never owned one but got to ride several friends, hope to own one before I die, please don’t tell my wife ! 😁

I didn't know about reverse gear (is it like the Goldwing where it uses the starter motor?), however, I read about a mod where they reversed the cylinder head and had the carbs out front.... bit of a $$ project and quite frankly.... frankensteinish.

Not quite like the Glodwing, its a little more crude in its design in fact there is no gear but the bike will backup.
