A sweet T500 from ou regular contributor Ted Guthrie.

Hell of a nice deal!  Exactly the type of bikes people dream of finding..  Thanks Ted. And sorry for the long delay in getting this posted.Not sure what happened there.
Hi, Steve. Thought I'd share with you the great barn find I brought home recently. It's a 1973 Suzuki T500 Titan, with 4,000 original miles on it. Although far from perfect cosmetically due to plain old aging, it is in amazing condition. All I did to get it look as it does in these pictures was to wash it. Torn fork gaitors show, as well as a broken lock on the gas cap - hence my baggie/rubber band seal. Tape on the tank is my label reminding me there is no fuel in it. Haven't tried to fire it up yet, as I intend to go through the carbs and ignition first. Dig the condition of the seat and tires. They're exactly as when I got the bike. No Armorall on 'em or anything. Nearly 40 years old. Amazing. What a survivor. Ted Guthrie PS: Please see also, pic of parts and pieces of '75 Bultaco 350 Alpina I am putting together. 1960 Triumph Tiger Cub is next in line, too.
