Suzuki T500 racer Suzuki’s T500 was a rare beast: a large-capacity two-stroke road bike that sold in big numbers in the US. And it’s not hard to see why. For a late 60s motorcycle, it was light, fast, and blessed with agile handling. And more reliable than most four-stroke twins. I’ve always thought that the stock T500 was a good-looking bike, but this replica racer is … quite something else.
