Story to the bike an why i bought it is that I needet a new one for my daily ride because my old Yamaha XT250 was a liddle underpowered and worn out for my heavy bones. Because Dieter has a lot of good experience with his XT500 and I had a SR500 for more than four years in the past as one of my first real motorcycles the choice was easy.
The bike was found on ebay just around the corner in Hamburg with onley two pre owners and 36000km on the clock, but it was not used for more then 20 years.
The result of this long sad sitting and rusting in the garage was found in the carburator as you can see. It doesent want to start and iddle, but with papers, german MOT and new tires on it I could not resist anyways.
I give the bike to Dieter for a "liddle" refurbishment because to many projects and a bathroom to fix that needs most of my spare time, but hey what else are friends for
Dieter finished a perfect running bike that starts almost every time on first kick in just one week and after the first 200km are ridden last weekend I can say it feels like a new one!
