Hi All,

Just joined the club. I have a Yamaha xs850sh 1980 which belonged to my late father. Over the last few years I have slowly rebuilt the bike.

I have had ups and down with the bike initialy I gave it to a motorbike mechanic who had the bike over a year and promised me it will be up and running with an MOT.

So I could Nova register for UK reg. I ended up going to the garage and loading the bike onto my van and took it home. With no MOT and still not running.

The bike now starts and UK reg with an MOT. I am now doing the clutch.

Looking forward to finding out more about the Yamaha xs850sh as I have no real experience on bikes.

Regards

John
