Mike Vincent’s 1986 Yamaha XT600
This is my 1986 1VJ XT at various stages over the last five years. I have had it running all that time and mostly did the work in the winter. It is now a mixture of about four or five bikes, what with all the second-hand parts. I have learned after doing this bike not to be too obsessed with restoration. If you have a usable old bike just enjoy riding it. It’s great fun on the back roads where I live near Harleston!
