ClevelandMoto Podcast 119 Our New Home Cleveland Moto

The first Podcast from our new shop. 

Did somebody say "Buffer Rodeo"? 

Our Tribute to the Yamaha XS-650

The Yamaha XS650 is a mid-size motorcycle made by Yamaha Motor Company. The standard model was introduced in 1968 and produced through 1979. The "Special" cruiser model was introduced in 1978 and produced through 1985. The XS650 began with the 1955 Hosk SOHC 500 twin. After about 10 years of producing 500 twin, Hosk engineers designed a 650 cc twin. Later the Hosk company was acquired by Showa Corporation, and in 1960 Yamaha had bought Showa with Hosk's early design of 650 cc twin.[1]
When the Yamaha XS 650 was launched in 1968 it had one of the most advanced engines in its class of large parallel twin motorcycles. The engine and gearboxare unit construction with the crankcase split horizontally for ease of assembly whereas almost all contemporaries in its class in 1968 are either unit construction with a vertically split crankcase or pre-unit construction with separate engine and gearbox.

The cool thing about the XS-650 is you can do damn near anything with it:



Cafe Racer

Off Road - Scrambler

Custom ?!?!

Or, the one that Johnny Chrome actually owned:

Genuine Motorcycle Company misses the beginning of the 2016 riding / selling season. 

Looks like we're going to be waiting until August to test ride this fun little bike. Grrrr.

Oh wait, sorry, that's a picture of a Honda CB400SS - Doesn't matter, Honda paid Shineray to build it.  We're looking forward to this bike more than is rational.
