Yamaha Other description

I have a clean yamaha 1979 SR500F 
 The bike was to be a manix cafe racer project but when I picked it up you know how the story goes. It's way to nice to strip and mod out. So here it is. The only flaws are the fork tubes are pitting at the triple clamp area and the high beam knob is gone. It still functions as it should but the rocker switch is gone. It only has 13k miles on it but will ga up because I can't stay off of it. 
 I have looked for one of these for 20years and finely found a good one. The stator was bad so I sent it to REXs Speed shop in the UK to have the low side of the stator rewound. I also installed his CDI box (have original). 
 It has a 34mm mikuni carb with a super trapp exhaust. 
 While waiting on the stator to come home I serviced the bike to ride. Rebuilt front and rear calipers, new tires, valve adjusted,  serviced chain, serviced fuel system. Fuel tank has NO rust. 
 I really don't want to sell it but I'm wanting to build a cafe bike. I also have a really nice TT 500 all set up for flat tracking. I built it 1994 and restored/updated it in 2013. If you have any interest in that it will be on VFT this week. 
 Don't think I will be giving this bike away as I really enjoy ridding it. 
 Call, txt or email any questions 317-498-0241 send me a txt and I can send a video. 
 Buyer responsible for all shipping and handling but I will assist if needed. 
 Bike is for sale locally so may end auction early. 
 Thanks for looking and happy ebaying!
