Nice Suzuki Twin Roadracer. T500 maybe??

I'm guessing T500? Anyone know for sure? I admit that out of the big three (Suzuki, Kawasaki, Yamaha) that Suzukis are not my strong suit.

Yamaha RZ50 (that's not a typo)

Take a g good look at the scale. It's a converted YSR. Really trick little bike that went around Deals Gap like a small daemon!

Penton / KTM "Jack Pine Special" Supermoto.

I get some good traffic over here from the folks so every now and then I like to go over and see what they're up to.  Great bunch of folks and if you're even remotely interested in old Penton or KTM motorcycles (or any old dirtbike from that era) then go pay em a vist.  Great Stuff!

Anyway while I was snooping around over there I stumbled across this beauty.  I love this sort of treatment.   I was very tempted to buy a similarly built bike a while back that was based on an XT500.  It's one of the styles of bikes that really shine when "modernized".  Power should NOT be a problem and I imagine she handles brilliantly.

Mr JC Hubbard had the breakdown in his post as follows:
 '77 Penton 175 Engine with Lectron Carb

'77 Penton MC5 Frame & Tank
'80 KTM 175 Swingarm
'89 KTM GS 125 Forks, Wheels, Brakes
'78 KTM Torque Pipe
Trail Tech Cannondale Odo/Speedo
Magura Hymec Hydraulic Clutch
Magura 167 Front Brake Master
Kenda Tires

Update: 1968 Suzuki 50cc Grand Prix Roadracer, the RP68, a 3-cylinder 50cc engine pics.

Update: From the comments. Thanks! COOL LINK and HERE TOO

In response to my small CC Suzuki racebike post Bill Thomas sent in some info and a link about this amazing little Suzuki engine.
Bill Writes:
There was a 50cc Suzuki several years ago, a three-cylinder two-stroke (naturally) with 14 speeds and 22 hp at a zillion rpm, or something like that. Nothing the Europeans had was anything close. Not sure that it ever competed. This changed the rules, gearboxes were limited to four or five speeds, and only single-cylinders were allowed. Yes, Cycle World had a story on it, and photos of the engine internals – three little tiny pistons hanging out of the cases.

Thanks Much for the cool info!

He included a link that had these amazing photos and info:

This is a 1968 Suzuki 50cc Grand Prix Roadracer, the RP68, a 3-cylinder 50cc bike. They changed the rules, restricting the 50cc class to 1 cylinder, before it could race. (There were 5 cyl 125's and the like as well before the rule change.)

Cool little Suzui Buzzbomb Racebike.

I don't have any extra info on this bike. I know that a major magazine (Cycle World maybe)did a story in this bike a few years back but I couldn't find anything. Anyone have any specifics on this beauty?
