Your looking at my 1975 Yamaha XS500B originally registered here in the UK in October 1975. The bike is in very good original condition having only had two previous owners, I have every MOT from 1978 to June 1997, the final MOT mileage is 14141, thereafter I believe the bike was put into storage in a heated garage, judging from the condition of the tin ware I can well believe this.
The current mileage is 14355 as such this bike has only covered just over 200 miles in the last 12 years.
Downsides; there is a dink on the front mudguard & on the headlamp rim which apart from this is in excellent condition, the down pipes are a little dull however both mufflers are in exceptional condition, the chrome work on the rest of the bike is excellent considering how old the bike is, with no pitting or dinks anywhere, the wheel rims are good as is the rear mudguard. The tank & side panels looks like they've been resprayed at some point which were done to a very good standard though the transfers do show some micro air bubbles here & there, not really noticeable unless looking very closely.
The bike starts on the button & runs with no nasty noises, it rides as it should. Its a historic vehicle so is tax & MOT are exempt, grab yourself a bargain, this bike is ready to go though I would suggest a good service as it's been standing for quite a while.
A YouTube video of it running can be seen here: - details above
