Danish Suzuki T500!
 
https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-s...0/DSC_0355.JPG

Restored, still has original throttlegrip etc. Goes like stink, but the MPG is horrid. 10km/ltr, but I was at +5000 rpm.

Love it!

Will need a new front tyre as it jumps around abit, then maybe an electronic ignition.

That is an amazing find!!!

The one i am looking at now isn't exactly in showroom condition.

It seems I am a bit ahead! :)

Take notice of how the innerside of the rear fender even is!

Reino 09-29-2012 12:25 PM

:eek1 You lucky bastard :lol3 :eek1

Joking aside, how is it that the bike you bought is in such a good shape.

How much did you pay?

LasseNC 09-29-2012 12:46 PM

20.000,- DKK, it's just below 5000$ I reckon, but it's Danish prices... :)

Reino 09-29-2012 01:00 PM

Thats just about 28700 Namibian Dollar. Not bad, not bad. I am looking at two bmw bikes tomorrow for about 10452.96 dkk.

But you know what sucks, I am an engineering student and engineering students have no money especially after spending money on maintenance for my vw polo, ktm 250sx and 1983 tt600. I wish i could just find a big pot of gold :cry .

The right side pipe was louder than the left, so I investigated and found a mashed up baffle by some P.O.

The exhaust had to be welded at the end due to this mockery. But a friend had me sorted and after two tries I also got a correct NOS baffle!

I'm a tad envious, would love to find one around here, especially in that condition.

Reino 12-02-2012 08:45 PM

He was dam lucky to find a bike that old in such a good shape!
