Yamaha XT600e (3aj) 2001 in Lima Peru *New bargain price*


I have a fantastically reliable 2001 Yamaha XT600e for sale. Its done just about 45,000k, fully kitted out with Hepco & Becker racks and panniers + top box, Acerbis 24l tank (range of about 500KMs), tall H&B windscreen, crash bars. Its got a new MT60 rear tyre and front is a Metzeler Sahara. Full service history, this is a super reliable air cooled single. Handled 5000m fully loaded 2 up without a cough over the Andes.

Here are some photos of the bike in action, note we no longer have the tank bag as it went with the little original 15l tank.


Lots more pics of the bike buried in the trip photos here:http://www.flickr.com/photos/motorcyclediaries

Let me know if you want more info davecaygill(at)gmail.com or +51 (0)569762880

THe new bargain price is $4200

hey dave,

was looking through the posts and picked up on yours. my mate and i are heading to SA in the middle of September, and are looking to pick up a couple of bikes. i have been having some chats with atwoke, (jens and kate) about their bikes, but looks like they might just have one bike for sale. so i was thinking if your bad boy was still available, i could dink my mate 2 up from santiago to lima, and pick up the second bike there.

so, if your bike is still up for grabs we should get chatting.

hope your travels are going well.

cheers dave,
