New to me 1977 Yamaha XS500!!
« on: January 20, 2020, 04:31:15 PM »
Im new to the xs500 world!  I bought a 1977 xs500 from a gentleman who did a fantastic job on the rebuild! Iv made some changes to fit me and currently having some issues with the starter.  This seems to be a great site for information! Very excited to get more miles on this bike! I own or have owned many atvs and sxs and a couple of bikes over the years, but nothing of this age LOL! about 5 years older than me!

Great looking bike! I like the details like the tuning forks badge on the gas tank.
