Took ownership of the Beast of Burden yesterday. She's a 1979 XT500. Super stoked as I've been wanting one of these classics for a while. Another of Yamaha's bullet proof 4 strokes the XT/SR engines are 500cc's of pure gold. This purchase came with a parts bike (very incomplete) and a spare motor which looks like it will be an easy rebuild. Pretty stoked to get this puppy up and running around the Saskatoon streets and out in the dirt as well.
