1971 T500 for your web site. Started as a basket case, and has taken a few
years and a lot of money to finish. Rickman fairing and parts from a lot of different
bikes purchased from swap meets and salvage yards. Very few new parts were used, with the
exception of the motor. From California.
Looks like a GSX250/GS450 tank fits quite
well! Black chrome on the pipes as well, nice touch.
Parts used in construction:
Suzuki GS450E Gas Tank (Polished to look like
aluminum no paint)
Suzuki GS450E seat foam cut down w/custom
upholstery on a custom made base.

could see more of the motor.
