For Sale in Buenos Aires


Our beloved Paco and Lola will be for sale in Buenos Aires by March 15. Paco and Lola are 1972 Yamaha xs650s. We bought them 3 years ago and put in the usual upgrades for these bikes - electronic ignition, saddle bags and top cases, steering bearings, overhauled both motors (both leak a little oil), X-drive chains, sprockets, gaskets and seals. Both run well and start great (although Lola's starter won't engage anymore). They are registered in Alberta, Canada. They have been faithful travel companions, i.e. no breakdowns. We left Edmonton, Alberta, Canada on October 1 and are presently (Jan. 18) in Peru. Each one goes through about a litre of oil in 5000 Kms. They are good on gas, about 4 L/100 Km. We will be sad to leave them but don't want to pay to ship them back to Canada. We want $3,000 (US or Can) for the pair.
