This past summer, while working on the September/October 2010 issue of Motorcycle Classics, we received a set of photos from photographer Nick Cedar for an upcoming story, and our chins hit the floor. Nick had shot a great set of photos of a lovely 1972 Suzuki Titan T500, and we were stoked to get them ready to run in the magazine.
Today’s run through eBay for interesting motorcycles made me do a double-take: Was it the same 1972 Suzuki T500?
Further examination has us saying no. Our photo bike was located in California, and the current owner of the eBay T500 lives in Nebraska. Though the auction doesn’t specifically say how long the bike has been with its current owner, we’re betting the owner of our magazine feature bike, Tony Silveira, still has his and that this is another well-cared-for Titan.
According to the auction, this T500 has a clean and clear title and runs strong in all gears. It appears to be very clean an in lovely original condition. According to the auction, the bike comes with the original tool kit, owners manual and a pair of NOS baffles. The battery was replaced last summer, the tires are good, and the lights and indicators work.
