Additional photos of this 1975 Suzuki T500 Titan are available here for your perusal.

From the late 1960s until the early 1970s, two stokes dominated the motorcycle market. With their narrow power bands and thrilling rides, such high-revving, oil-burning bikes attracted riders from far and wide.

By and large, however, motorcycle manufacturers believed that an air-cooled two stroke larger than 350cc in displacement would be impractical to build. If it didn’t somehow overheat, surely it would be unmanageable to ride and impossibly expensive to fill with gas.

With the introduction of the T500 in 1968, Suzuki put that myth to rest. Building on the success of the T20, the bike boasted a 493cc twin that was all but bombproof. Not only was it free of any cooling issues; it was also quiet, user-friendly, and incredibly reliable. In many ways, it was an ideal commuter.

This example is VIN: T50082402. The seller has owned the bike for 16 years.

The odometer shows 26,646 miles.

This T500 appears to be completely stock.

The sale includes several boxes of parts, within which you’ll find spare cylinder heads, carburetors, exhausts, and various other components which may be helpful for the restoration.
