    I've heard that stock they don't have the peakiness typical of most 2=strokes; if memory serves me correct, they were marketed mostly as a touring bike. Sounds like a solid project bike at a good price, though.

    That is true of almost all of suzuki's road going two stroke motorcycles, they are very smooth and ride almost like four strokes. Porting and chambers goes a long way with these bikes. It isn;t hard to get rip snorting two stroke power out of them but I think it kills the character of what these bikes are about.

    When I got my T500 it had an AHRMA race engine in it built by Dr. Von Strangemind. It rode very much like my '75 H1. Then I rode a stock T500 and found that the stocker was much more fun because I didn't have to manage my revs as much when I was riding spiritedly. The 5 extra hp was not worth it to me. Now that I have two I am building one stock and one hot so I can have the best of both worlds (and scare myself occasionally two stroke style).

    I've always liked T500s - I prefer the looks and overall size to the GT750. BUT I've never ridden one. I think one is definitely in my future when I get the CB450 done.

    "1975 SUZUKI GT750, Water Buffalo. 3 cyl., 2 stroke, water cooled. Complete, mostly original, some rust. odometer shows 17K miles. Ran when I bought it a couple months ago. $900 OBO."



    If you like to ride something that is WAY fun and off the beaten path, the Water Buffalo is for you.
    The GT750 is one of the most fun bikes I have ever ridden.

    You will get excellent support from the guys on the Sundial site that Geeto referenced. They have all helped me out alot.

    Thanks for all the advice. I like the looks of the bike a lot but I was looking for a really cheap barn bike to start out with. But who knows I keep thinking about trying to swing it.
    Ogri, thats a good looking bike you got there.
