Here’s a very interesting cafe build, and right in my backyard of Portland, Oregon. Aside from the lovely execution of this machine, it’s also pretty special being built on a Yamaha SRX-600, which is quite rare in it’s own right. In fact they were only made for one year and sport only single single; albiet a 600cc thumper!

As of this writing, this sweet little machine is only getting $1025 with 7 bids and over 5 days to go. We had one recently on our sister site, Rare Sport Bikes For Sale for $2950. That one was very low miles, so I think we can expect this one to be in the low $2000′s or less by the time it’s done. That’s a very cool ride with a lot of real work in it for not very much cash in my opinion.

Thanks for the heads up Mike!
