Hi from Sweden!
« on: July 08, 2019, 09:24:39 PM »
Hi everyone!
I am a 55 year old swede and owner of some bikes
I have 2 xs500 from 1977, and a spare engine. Both bikes were bougt more tha 20 years ago. The fist one was a non runner and is still because the engine (cylinder head) is bad. The second one was a runner and i drove it for some time. But i was noticing that it was losing compression and was finally impossible to start.
I am now in progress of restoring that bike and see if i can get it running again.
