Just finished restoring my fathers t500, The bike
stayed in the backyard under a tarp for 7 years before i decide to take a look at it.
Changed the battery, Removed the heads and cleaned the tops of the pistons, changed
spark plugs, trans oil, Polished and painted. All original except for the handle
bars. Has 18000 miles My father never thought it would start but to his
surprise it did on about the tenth crank. Love the bike. Lots of power
