Mel Lemoto Rearsets By Tom Mortimer

Dave Ellis, from Penrith in Cumbria, has been a fan of lightweight Japanese bikes ever since he first owned an RD125B in 1977, since when he graduated up to a Honda CB250N Superdream. But it was down hill from then, he jokes. His biggest bike is an RD400 Daytona -the one shown on the classic Yamaha stand at Stafford this year - which he bought in Cologne, and his current collection of 17 machines includes and RD250F, an RD200DX and a DT175. Dave started getting back on FSlEs in the 1980s before...

Yamaha Xt500

Having spent the last 20 years restoring mostly trail bikes, and being an avid reader of CMM, Mark Smith thought it was about time to show us his latest iconic rebuild. Having seen XTs in my youth, it would only be a matter of time before the right bike had to appear - 30 years to be precise. This is my 1978 XT500 it was registered in late 1979 and has been owned prior to myself by one family. It hasn't done much in its life 8300 miles, just two MoTs and two tax discs, with the last one...
