Value for money was al­ways part of the Yamaha twin’s ap­peal in the Seven­ties, and that still holds to­day. “A tidy TX650 is worth £3000 to £4000; maybe £4500 if it’s all reg­is­tered and ready for the road,” said Char­lie Gar­ratt of Ox­ford Clas­sic Honda (www. clas­sic honda mo­tor­cy­cles. co.uk). The test bike is sold but Char­lie was re­cently ad­ver­tis­ing an orig­i­nal ex­am­ple of its pre­de­ces­sor, a 1972-model XS-2, for £4000.
