Here we have a totally original and correct 1978 UK supplied bike with exceptional pedigree. Having been within the same ownership for the last 20 years and lovingly maintained over that period this XT500 comes delightful patina not found on restored bikes.

We love a trail bike for those opportunities to head out for an afternoon and what a bike for the job! Don’t believe what you’ve heard about the viscous kick start, starts fist kick every time without any fuss.

Presented with an exception service file going right back to include old MOTs, service documents and Yamaha invoices.

Ready to go with a fresh MOT, a service and a new set of knobbly tyres.

Any test welcomed
Watch this delightful review of a slightly later model demonstrating the usability and cool factor.

Just listen to it!!
