Well a while back i told y'all i found this bike in a field about 3 blocks from my house thought i would post up a few pics. Other than the seat and bars this is exactly how i found it.
I have current plates on it and am just in the parts gathering phase.
Got a 77 CB 550F i got to sell before i can play with it.
enjoy

Yeah 2 stroke power i saw these tee shirts some where on the web that said " you have been smoked by a 2 stroke "
I should have bought it when i saw it because now i can not find it.
2 strokes are fun in town Piss of a yuppie on his VEE Twin. Hardley Dagerous.

Good score mate. Looks like a 75 model, the last of the T500 (before she became the GT500 and gave up her brit forks and drum brake for a disc). The seat looks like a dunstall seat design but I was unaware he made any parts for the T500.

If you are looking to cafe racer it, a little trick a racer told me about is that a CR750 long tank fits right on with little mods for the rear fastner.

don;t forget to check out the suzi two stroke board:

and the T500 resource page:

I plan on keeping the english plates and mounting my wash. plats low or below and use it as a fender of sorts not sure yet .
Just got some chambers for it.
it is killing me not to work on it But i got to stay focused on selling the 550 four so i can move on to the 500
