It got 107 miles to the gallon and did nearly 60 miles per hour with an oversize rear tire. Should have never sold it.

Front end is XS650.
Nicely turned out, the bash plate/paint and the new rims go well together. Front fender looks like an RD400 item.

My '83 Honda FT500 Ascot with cafe treatment, going over Independance Pass, Colorado.



( I give this thread a 20% chance of going to Thumpers ANYWAY )

The XT's for sale, south of Topeka. Guy wants $2k, though, which seems high to me.

OK, call me ignorant......but what is this? Certainly a beautiful 'lil bugger!

I'm trying to find all my old street and racebike pics.....I'll post my Suzuki TS-400 roadracer here as soon as I find that stash. She was certainly a one-of-a-kind.

105mpg, just about 85mph with a hill.



Currently in many little bits all over the house and garage until I finish a bit of extra work on it. Rather missing it

Lets not forget about about Dan Gurney's Alligator.



And a few more singles worth looking at that I saw at the Concours d' Eligance at Del Mar in San deigo a few years back.

Found, but can't post....

I've finally found and scanned by old racebike pics, but this site hasn't allowed me to post 'em yet. Will do as soon as things clear up. Roadraced '75 Suzuki TS-400 2-stroke single is on the waiting list......
