1977 Yamaha XT500 Enduro For Sale

This is my custom 500cc Yamaha XT Enduro. The bike began life as a (UK registered) 1977 XT500C and was subsequently modified by a previous owner using custom alloy and stainless parts, many of them specially designed and machined by hand. Too many mods to list, but new alloy tank and swinging arm, adjustable progressive gas shocks with piggy-back reservoirs, custom-made, one-off stainless exhaust system and Grimeca front disc brake conversion for starters. Wheels have been rebuilt with stainless spokes and Akront alloy rims. Tyres are brand new trail knobblies, Chains and sprockets appear to be in tip-top condition. I was told the motor had a top-end rebuild, with everything checked and any worn parts replaced with new. Anyhow, the cam-chain tensioner mechanism appears perfect (with plenty of adjustment, inner pushrod almost flush with outer barrel and showing correct 1-2mm movement), engine starts readily (with use of valve-lifter and mixture lever) and runs smoothly without smoke or nasty knocks. There are two workshop manuals, some spares and other bits and pieces included in a box. Ride is very plush - feels more like a monoshock. Comes with integral alloy side-stand and specially adapted rear paddock stand. No tacho fitted but torque curve on these is so flat you barely miss it. Speedo works but reads low and ideally could do with being replaced. Please note that since photos were taken, the fork stanchions have been adjusted so that they now sit just 10mm above the top yoke - this was done to increase trail and therefore aid on-road stability. Overall gearing feels a bit lower than standard - ideal for green lanes. Over 40 years old so MoT required. V5C in my name. Many moons ago, I purchased a brand new XT500 and always wanted another. However I'm now much older and no taller, and despite the bike's light weight, seat height has proved a bit too much for me to manage. For anyone more agile or over 5ft 6in, this would not present a problem. Offers or consider exchange for smaller bike WHY?
