I'm not sure how much I should ask for this, so I thought I'd start here and ask the experts:). What would something like this go for? Thanks for any advice.

1980 Yamaha XS 850 G
I bought this bike from a friend 2 years ago. It had been sitting in the garage unused. I replaced the tires, Oil/Filter, spark plugs, brake fluids/pads and gave the front brake calipers a good service. It started right up and has run with almost no problems since then. I use it as a back up to my main commuter bike and have even done a couple long range trips with my wife and luggage on the back. It has what you would consider normal wear and tear for this bike, but I think it’s in great shape. The self-canceling turn signals don’t always work, but everything else works really well. A few months ago the fuse box failed and took the battery with it. So it now has blade style in-line fuses with a brand new battery. It runs a little rough until its warmed up, but other than the fuse box failure, has never left me stranded and starts right up, even when its winter cold around here in Seattle. It has a brand new custom seat, foam and cover. It also has the rear rack/back rest.
