Yamaha - XS750E

1979 Yamaha XS750E DOHC Unregistered US Import Classic Restoration Project

VIN: 1J7244105

Stock No: 97497

This Tax & MOT exempt 1979 Yamaha XS750E DOHC has recently been imported from North America where it has spent all its life.

We have been unable to confirm this mileage reading. Please disregard it.



As you can see this bike has a few parts missing – Mirrors being the most obvious.

It has stood a while, so the battery is flat, tyres & seat cover are perished, master cylinders are not working, tank is a bit mucky inside, carburettors are stuck & mudguards are pitted.

Sadly, the clocks have been exposed to hot sunshine which  has warped the faces.


The wheels are straight with nice clean alloy rims, good looking discs & calipers.

Forks & yokes look straight with good chrome.

Mudguards are both solid.

Taillight assy is good as are the headlight & hangers.

Paintwork is solid, fuel tank needs a good flush-clean inside and has just minor dents/marks & scratches in the original paint.

Exhaust is a 3:1 system.

Seat base is in solid condition.

Indicators are tidy.

The engine is cosmetically clean, it turns over nicely off the kick starter - We have had it firing/running on easystart spray but the fuel system & carbs will need attention.
