Details of motor are not clear but my guess, Yamaha xs650 motor, frame, forks, wheels.

Thanks
Any idea how old it is or what year range it is from? Mid to late 70's maybe?

I'm not sure what the motor is. I'm sure that it is not an XS650 Yamaha. This is an XS650
JKE

Ok so it’s not a sx-650 I am not all that knowledgeable about these types of bikes. The reason I am asking about it here at fhp is your all-so dam smart. Seriously though I do appreciate any help I get.
