"Yamaha's popular off-road motorcycle in a non-renovated and super condition. A nice investment that only increases in value."


This biker came to Sweden in 1976 where it was exhibited at the fair in Miami. It is reportedly the first to come to Europe, imported by then general agent Hallman & Eneqvist to appear at the fair in Stockholm.
After that the bike was sold to a motorcycle company Halmstad Gustav where it got its first owner. Has through careful owners who cared for it well preserved in this fine original condition and the only thing that has been replaced are wear parts such as brake pads, drive packages, etc.

Facts about the model

Den första XT 500 visades vid den amerikanska återförsäljarkonventionen i september 1975 och i Europa sommaren 1976. Cykeln blev en omedelbar framgång och tillverkades fram till 1981 då den ersattes av fyrventilmotorer. Det beredde väg för det senare utbudet av XT-cyklar från 125 cc ( XT125 ) till nuvarande 660 cc ( Yamaha XT660Z Ténéré ) och bidrog till stor del till Yamahas image. Bara i Frankrike såldes 62 000 XT 500 från 1976 till 1990. [1] [2]
