SUMMER MADNESS SALE.......LOOK BID BUY!!!
It's that time of year when a man needs something to tinker with in the garage.
This very rare and much sought after 1973 Yamaha TX500 twin has recently been imported from North America where it has spent all its life – the air is thin and the climate is far kinder to machinery than ours. This and the fact this bike has only done 5898 miles and has been in dry storage for the last umpteen years have helped maintain its boyish good looks.
PLEASE CHECKOUT THE PICTURES........As you can see this bike is complete and is every bit as nice as it looks here. Sadly the fuel tank is mucky inside & the brake master cylinder doesn't work BUT The wheels are straight with nice clean chrome rims, good hubs, rear brake plate, disc & caliper. Forks & yokes look straight with good chrome. Mudguards are both solid & tidy. Tail light assy is good as are the headlight & hangers. Instruments & switches look great and all locks are on the same key. Fuel tank & side panels are slightly faded but solid. Exhausts are original. Seat is in very good condition throughout. Chain guard is tidy. The engine is cosmetically very clean, it turns over nicely off the kick starter – sounds/feels great & has compression – When we hooked it up to a good battery & fed it a few squirts of ether it starts & runs but the carbs do need cleaning.
If you require any further information please give us a call or better still visit our showroom and have a good look over the bike for yourself – after all who are you going to believe me or your own eyes?
