XS850 S2 TRIPLE

Introducing our second bike - the Spirit-built '79' S2 road racer.

 

This hooligan started life as a sedate 1979 Yamaha XS750 tourer, was then re-engined to 850cc for more torque and reliability, dropped at the front and raised at the back for sharper steering and better handling, with a glorious three-cylinder bark from it's new ceramic coated exhaust system.
