35th Gear: Yamaha XT500 1977

Yamaha xt500 1977. The bike was with one owner for over 30years. This is a very careful restoration. As our target was not to erase the signs of usage that stayed after all those years. The frame and engine were painted and several metal parts zinc plated. The wheels were fitted with new spokes and the rim itself and the front fork was polished. Engine and carburettor were serviced, and she got new seals all around. Some new plastics and the seat got a new cover. To underline that the bike was in use all the years and carries the signs of the years with pride, the tank was only polished, and we did not get rid of the stickers.
