Hey all,
For quite a while I've liked the look cafe racers, but I didn't know what they were. Since then I've done some research and got a bike. The bike I have isn't really suited to the cafe style: 1984 Kwasaki 700LTD. I came across a 1978 Yamaha XS400 for sale and am thinking about picking it up as a cafe reacer project. Does anyone have experience with these bikes? Pros or cons? The bike appears to be in great shape. As you can see, he is asking $600 for it, does this seem to be a fair price to you guys? Any other advice or opinions would be welcome.

Dude, that bike looks cool. I'd say if it runs ok, and looks good, buy it. Some clip-ons and rear sets, and a decent set of rubber, you'll be set.
