I have a 1976 Yamaha XS 500 C motorcycle for sale.
Bike has approximately 24,000 miles. It had previously been parked for 18 years due to a clutch rod not being installed properly.
I have completely dis-assembled the bike checked timing and chains.
Drive chain is in good shape.
Motor is healthy and running well.
New Spark plugs, fresh points, condensor,freshly resealed gearboxes no leaks.
Gas tank was flushed and cleaned of all rotten fuel, petcocks replaced. Carbs cleaned and re-sealed and adjusted, no leaks.
Bike was originally brown.... I have completely stripped and custom painted the bike.
Comes duplicate body pieces. However entire body of bike has been re-sprayed base clear in a deep teal metallic paint. As well the wheels/brake rotors were sanded, cleaned and paint matched to the bike color.
Seat will need to be re-upholstered.
More pictures soon.
Great little vintage bike. Completely gone through and running well. No headgasket/head issues as the xs500's were well known for.
I like European cars. Generally, the costlier they are to maintain, the more attracted I am to them. If they sit in the garage on blocks and don't run, I don't care. They're still mine.
