If those miles are genuine and its in good nick with an MOT, i'd say about £800

price

A nice , unrestored example of a red and white xt600z with around 20k miles on it went for £1800 on Ebay in the uk recently

They seem a bit cheaper in Germany where they are more numerous, and I think a good quality, early era 600z will always attract a lot of interest in Europe, especially if it is in original condition

Depends on the model I guess...

I wouldnt pay £1800 for an 86 high miler. Thats nuts. You can buy a 2003 XT600E with about 4000 miles on it for less.

i paid less than £700 for a 97 600e that only needed a starter clutch repair to get it on the road.
i wouldn't pay more than that for a pre 90 model unless it was very low mileage or absolutely mint condition

Yer Probably. Put it on Ebay and find out.

Maybe the clocks have been changed in the past. It would have to be sitting for 20 years for a believable mileage like that.

If it had only 4000 miles on it, it would look SHOWROOM compared to even a 5 year old bike.

Come on then, lets have some nice pictures....

It's a shame you have to sell your bike!
If you do want to sell it on ebay perhaps you should put a reserve price a little higher than those 700£ and maybe add a Best Offer button... who knows, you might have a better offer


Btw, It is possible for a 20+ year old bike have very low mileage..

before I started using my '90 XT600E my dad had bought it in the US it only had about 2500miles on it.
That was 16 or 17 years ago and until I started riding her just a few years ago it only 4500 miles....

The bike sat in the garage and he only rode it in the summers... but hey, what can i say, lucky me

And if I recon, it has a little over 19000 great awesome fun miles on the clock

depends on condition. If it's in good shape, around $1800 or so. If it's been flogged and looks it, around $800.

I paid $1400 for my '86. It's very clean and in very good condition with 7,000 miles and a clean title.

Show us some pics.
