I own a 77 XT-500. It runs great, easy to start, but needs some TLC beyond my capabilities. How can I find a shop that caters to vintage dual-sports? (in the Las Vegas area)… Thanks
Finding shops who have any sort of knowledge of older bikes can be a challenge. I would of course encourage you to do the work yourself. Anyone with a shop manual, a few common tools, and a free afternoon can figure out how to repair most items on their motorcycle – especially a less complex bike like the Yamaha XT500 singles.
However, if you prefer not to turn a wrench, I hear Complete Cycle Repair in northern Las Vegas does very good work and the owner is a vintage bike guy!
