Hello Everyone
« on: October 21, 2012, 04:01:37 PM »
I'm Greg from Royal Oak Michigan. I picked up a 1978 XS500E last July that had stood outside under a cover for about three to five years. It is in pretty rough shape and I'm doing a ground up on it. The previous owner said it ran great when he parked it. After rebuilding the carbs and getting the wiring strait, it did fire right up. 

The resources for theXS/TX500 line is pretty scattered around the web. With my blog http://xs500.blogspot.com/ and this message board I hope we can all help each other out with getting or keeping our bikes running. This board is open to all Yamaha XS/TX500 owners.

I hope to add the XS360 and XS400 lines to the boards in the near future. This is a work in progress so please bare with me.

So welcome everyone, I hope everyone finds the info they are looking for here.

Nice to meet you Greg, my name is Jeff, I have a 1976 xs500 that I have stripped down to the ground, rewired, removed, added to, welded, changed, drilled and retrofitted most everything... I am a lover of the Cafe racer and naked sport bikes, so I blended the two. there is more work to be done, but right now it's a ugly, flat black, piece of my handiwork.

Ah but it was modified with your own two hands, that's what makes it special.
