Quick, agile, light and reliable, Suzuki’s T500 bucked conventional
thinking about two-strokes and the trend towards big four-strokes in the
late ’60s and was generally a smooth, successful and pretty bike.
This particular bike is Boris ‘Bob’ Guynes’ Suzuki T500 Titan, and it goes a little beyond just pretty.
Bob, a self-admitted “scoundrel, into bikes and speed” and veteran of the Bonneville salt flats, built the bike with Ron Grant and has campaigned it in vintage motorcycle racing. A fabricator and model-maker by trade, his skills shine in this incredible machine. It’s built from period-correct bits to be absolutely immaculate. A work of art.
