1969 T500 MARK II



The Suzuki T500 is a 492cc two-stroke, twin cylinder motorcycle with a 5-speed transmission produced between 1968 and 1975.

The Mark II variants had improved handling with an extended swinging arm.

A grand prix racing version was developed in 1968 and the 1969 version was capable of 237 kmph. In 1971, Suzuki won its first 500 GP with this bike at the Ulster Grand Prix (Jack Findlay).

Also popular in production racing, this model Suzuki won the Isle of Mann TT in 1970 (Frank Whiteway) and also in 1972 (Stan Woods).

The bikes had a duplex cradle frame which was stiffer than its competitors and lead to a reputation for fantastic handling. The bikes had twin shock absorbers, telescopic forks at the front and front and rear drum brakes.


This is an outstanding, numbers matching motorbike that has been treated to a recently completed full nut and bolt restoration.

No kilometers have been travelled since the full engine rebuild which included the twin carburettor setup.

The smoothed frame has been power coated and the entire wiring loom and coils professionally replaced. This bike has the Titan stainless steel expansion chambers sourced from England.

All chrome work is brand new and extremely high quality. New stainless-steel spokes have been installed on the wheels.

The bike has new suspension, a NOS petrol tank, NOS petcock and NOS tachometer.

Done in the style of a café racer, the bike has a custom seat and ace bars.

A beautiful piece of automotive art, this bike would make a great display or register to ride and enjoy.
