Nice, cleaner, Suzuki T500


To make up for the flamed-out T500 I posted the other day, here is a nice semi-clean example of the Titan that is currently up for auction on eBay. It’s a 1975 model, with approximately 8.5K miles on it. It isn’t in perfect shape, but as the basis for a cafe racer build up it would be great. I really want to try building up one of these, and I will after I figure out if I’ve got the chops to do a great job with the SL350 project…

    I too have wanted one of these for the longest time. Good platform for a cafe racer but this one would also be nice left as is, maybe just a set GP Touring style bars

    I have a 1972 t500 titan and have converted it to a 1/4 mile drag bike. lots of work but it has paid off. I extended the rear by 6 inches. put a 54 tooth on the rear, drag bars, changer the front rake by 20 degrees. added a steering dampner and a air shifter. Im currently doin 11.95 in the 1/4
