This rare old 1979 Honda XL500S Enduro has recently been imported from North America where it has spent all its life ?€“ the air is thin and the climate is far kinder to machinery than ours. PLEASE CHECKOUT THE PICTURES. As you can see this bike has got a few bits missing. a few bits damaged/broken. a few bits non standard & a few bits are very nice indeed. The wheels are clean with a minor dent in the 23?€? front rim. Forks & yokes look straight. ?€?White Brothers?€? swing arm is tasty. Twin shox are damping nicely. Exhaust feels solid throughout. Feel tank is squeaky clean inside. Carburetor is free sliding off the twist grip. The engine is cosmetically quite clean. it turns over nicely off the kick starter & displays compression - When we hooked it up to a good battery & fed it fresh fuel it started & run but it is obvious the carb needs cleaning.
