Looking for WBJ227S a 1978 XT500
on: October 22, 2017, 21:43

I owned this bike from new & rode it in enduro events as well as road use & green laneing.

The bike is believed to be with an owner in the Tyne & Wear area by the name of Lynam or Lineham and was MoT tested at ARD Motorcycles Westgate Rd Newcastle upon Tyne on 26/5/17 & previous year on 17/6/16

According to ARD the owners name was Lineham or Lyneham.

Anyone know of the bike or the owner? Please phone me on 01223 843802

Having done further checks WBJ227S changed owner on 4th July 2017 so may no longer be in the Tyneside area.

Here is a link to a pic of me riding the XT at Landrindod Wells whilst taking part in the 1978 Welsh 2 Day Trial

Still looking for WBJ227S a 1978 XT500

Just to say, still no news of WBJ227S. I did have a call from a guy who read my letter in Classic Bike asking about it, Unfortunately he did not know where it is but gave me some advice on where to search, mostly avenues I had taken, plus he suggested I ask the DVLA, well before anyone else suggests that they wont give out names and addresses, only to the current owner for past owners! So now waiting for it to appear in Mike Worthington Williams column in OBM.

Cant believe there is an XT owner out there with my old bike and he has not looked in on this forum. Posts are so few that he would not have missed it!

Anyway if there is anyone out there Happy New Year to you.

Just bumping this thread as I have still not traced WBJ227S despite a 1/2 page letter and photo in Classic Bike Jan 2018 edition. The owner obviously does not take the mag!!
