1979 Honda XL500S, 498cc. Registration number EHN 789V. Frame number L2505023826 (see text). Engine number PD01E 5003358.
The XL500S which sold between 1979 and 1984, it descended from a long line of Enduro bikes. In 1979 one colour was available, Tahitian Red. The fuel tank and side cover stripes were black, red, and yellow. The control levers and kickstarter arm were silver. The speedometer had a 100 mph limit. The front wheel was 23" while the back was 18". The exhaust was a 2-into-1 system from the 498cc OHC 4-valve single cylinder engine with one carburetor, with a 5-speed gearbox.
EHN has DVLA MOT history from 2006 at 7,165 miles through to 2017 at 7,365 miles. At 7,335 miles in 2017 it received a service which included re-winding the lighting coil at a cost of £452.47, the mileage today is 7,367. Recently recommissioned and the bodywork repainted, it was ridden around our site when delivered for the auction. Buyers should satisfy themselves over this machine as the frame number is for a 250cc engine not a 500cc.
Sold with the V5C.
