*** 1983 YAMAHA XT550 IMPORTED FROM USA SHOWING 7,000 MILES ***
 
I originally bought this from "American Imports" as a project for myself with such low miles
(although can't be guaranteed) and coming from such a dry (Colarado) climate & looking very complete
and largely untouched.  However having done a partial restoration I am not mechanically minded and although 
she runs - video evidence taken today 11th March here: https://youtu.be/9uZZkf_iQI8 she is a bitch to start
no doubt not helped by being standing we think since 2016 & so I have decided to pass the baton on for
some enthusiast to finish her off & get the pleasure of fettling her to a better level.
 
SINCE OWNING HER FROM DECEMBER LAST YEAR I HAVE:
CHANGED OIL & FILTER
HAD THE CARBS ULTRASONICALLY CLEANED & REBUILT
HAD TANK & PLASTICS RESPRAYED IN HER ORIGINAL WHITE
(although plastics probably need replacing to make perfect)
NEW DECALS APPLIED 
EXHAUST REMOVED - SAND BLASTED - RESPRAYED IN VHT PAINT
ENGINE REPAINTED IN VHT PAINT WHERE FLAKED OFF
LOT OF CLEANING & SURFACE RUST REMOVAL & LUBRICATION OF THROTTLE ETC.
NEW REV COUNTER CABLE
NEW GRIPS & NEW BATTERY
 
The bad points are:
Needs starting up & running sorting
Plastics very tired although resprayed
Marks to engine casings which I have deliberately left alone
Horrible non original side stand
 
I AM SELLING AS A PROJECT/SPARES OR REPAIR AS DO NOT WANT TO/CANNOT OFFER ANY WARRANTY
SO TAKING EVERYTHING INTO ACCOUNT I THINK SHE IS PRICED VERY FAIRLY 
(and I'll be out of pocket but c'est la vie - I tried - I failed - can't win 'em all!)
