Looks superb. That would be at least £6000 in the UK. In fact just noticed there is one for sale 3 miles from me:

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/YAMAHA-XT500-1978-APPRECIATING-CLASSIC-GREAT-CONDITION/333710507873?hash=item4db2b23f61:g:CHUAAOSwE7lfU2LB

Good luck with the sale but I donít think youíll have any problems finding a buyer!

Looks great. If I was closer I'd buy it
I have one but she's not as nice as yours. I'm restoring her


Here's my tank





Not the right decals for the year but I don't like the ones it's supposed to have

Thanks! That tank looks really nice.  What year model is yours?

Another TT fan here,I used to have a TT600 until some cooking fat nicked it.
I'm tempted with a later TT 600 RE currently.

It's been lacquered now  :002:

Mines a 76
Still plenty to do to it to get it where it needs to be. Did you restore yours?


I also have her little sister

I did a partial restoration on mine. It's really interesting to see the differences between your 76 and 76 that we got here in the US. Your bike looks great!
