My XS500b
« on: October 28, 2012, 11:36:32 PM »
Hi all.....
Just thought I would share a pic of my XS500b - 1976.
Bought her a few years ago in a bit of a mess, didn't know much about these bikes, but loved the look!
I have had no big problems a she is great to ride, good to see lots of other xs & tx bikes from all different corners of the world. I am in Scotland.

Really nice shape, congratulations.  Double discs! DD are not standard in Canada. Did you install the accordian fork gators yourself or are those standard in Scotland?

Thanks for the comments.......DD are standard in the UK, not sure about the gators but they were on the bike when I got her.

Which tires are you using?

Also, would you consider having your bike on the registry?
