Here's a picture of my 1974 K-model T500.
When I was about 12 years of age (1974) I fell in love with this impressive bike. Now I am 41 years old and I decided to buy one. Next to my Honda Pan European it looks rather small instead of impressive, but who cares! Every now and than I ride it and i love it! I named it "Snoepie" which is dutch for "candy", because of the color which was called candy-lavender. The bike is unrestored and I am planning to keep it this way, after all it will be 30 years old next year and it still looks acceptable.
