2018 WINTER SALE.......LOOK BID BUY!!!
PLEASE SCROLL DOWN FOR MORE PIC's & DESCRIPTION.
This very much sought after 1977 Yamaha XT500D 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 motorcycles than ours. This and the fact it's only showing 11016 miles and has been in dry storage for the last umpteen years have helped maintain its boyish good looks.
We have been unable to confirm this mileage reading. Please disregard it.
The single most important purchase for a classic restoration project is the bike to restore, whether it's going to be a commercial venture or just a hobby interest it all starts here!.
PLEASE CHECKOUT THE PICTURES........As you can see this bike has a few parts missing – L/h mirror & exhaust heat shields being the most obvious. It has stood a while so the battery is flat, plastics are faded, tyres are perished. Sadly the tail lense is broken as are the rear indicator stems.
BUT NOW FOR THE GOOD NEWS.........This is the actual bike you are bidding on – Not library pictures from 40 years ago & it is every bit as nice as it looks here.
The wheels are straight with nice clean alloy rims, good hubs & brake plates. Forks & yokes look straight. Mudguards are both solid. Instruments & switches look ok. Carburetor is free sliding off the twist grip. Fuel tank is usably clean inside and has just minor dents/marks & scratches in the original paint. Exhaust is original & solid but has been recently flashed over with black paint. Seat is in very good condition throughout. Shock absorbers are damping fine. The engine is cosmetically clean, it turns over nicely off the kick starter – sounds/feels great & has compression BUT BEST OF ALL when we got one of our young apes to jump on the kick start it fires, starts, runs & revs.
This is only a very brief description….If you require any further information please give us a call or better still visit our showroom and have a good look over this bike & all the others we have on eBay for yourself – after all who are you going to believe me or your own eyes?
If you are ready for a new project & have been looking for a classic Yamaha XT500D to restore then look no further – THIS ONE COULD BE YOURS!!!
We are listing this bike as a trade clearance item with a super low WINTER MADNESS SALE starting price and LOW RESERVE so get bidding and get this project started.......Ask your self the question “CAN I AFFORD NOT TO BID?”

Please call MARK RUSHTON or NEIL WILSON or on 01782 861100 ext 244 or 241 who will be more than happy to answer any questions you have.
