No reserve auction for the cult classic 1978 Yamaha XT500. If you're looking at this you're probably somewhat familiar but this is an off-road and on-road motorcycle. Similar to the SR500 (street version) and the TT 500 (dirt bike version). The XT got off to a great start in production with wins at Dakar (http://www.influx.co.uk/blog/yamaha-xt500/). This bike appears to have a modified stock exhaust. The previous owner removed the airbox. I re-jetted the carb and have it dialed in pretty well now. I have a pretty nice TT500 gas tank that comes with it not a professional paint job but looks pretty good. I bought it because I liked the TT500 tanks better. Recent work includes setting the valves new shift lever and shift shaft with associated seals I think I put a new chain on it last year carb cleaned rejetted and rebuilt new battery.This bike can be seen running here: ;It's not a show bike it's a runner.It's an old bike no guarantees expressed nor implied. As such sales are final and it is sold as is where is- feel free to ask questions stop by to view it. If you want to test drive bring money so I can hold it while you're gone.
