Either a steal or a scam.

Double your money quick or lose it to Nigeria

So you figure the seller is a Flipper and doesn't know what he has?

Possible.

I thought they had stopped making the standard version by '81 and were only doing the Specials.

1981 Yamaha - $1200 (Madison)











1981 Yamaha 650, excellent shape for its age. Let me know if you have any questions.

Could be a '79 that was sold and titled in '81.

Could be a titled '81 engine that someone put into a standard frame.

Could ba a custom that was turned into a standard.

Could be a typo.

Looks like a 1979 Standard. Definitely not a 1981.

Yes, I cringe at the thought of what some asshat is going to do to that nice old bike.

The wheels would likely place it more between 74 - 77.

I would say there is enough of an odour to this one to make me suspicious.
