1981 Yamaha XT500 Motard

There is something unique about the Yamaha XT500. Being a really basic and understated machine, in a sea of late 70s technically advanced and ground breaking machinery, it successfully captured a new audience with its stomping ability while also catching the eye of the old Brit iron brigade. It lacked social graces like an electric start, making it a real riders machine and created a whole new generation of multi tasking two-wheelers, a genre that lives on strongly, many years on.

Using the XT500 as a base to build this motard, it features an upside down swing-arm from a TZR 250 and a Brembo rear brake set. The Powerflow exhaust rounds off the picture.
