1972 Suzuki T500

When Suzuki introduced the 500cc 2-stroke in 1970 there were doubts that such a design could survive hard use. But the T500 was strong and reliable with a modified version being the first two-stroke to win an AMA National Road Race. This machine has been re-painted, but the chrome and hardware is all original.

Probably more significant as far as winning races ' A T500 won the 500cc class at the Isle of Man in 1970 and 1972.' - from your oun article: http://www.motorcycleclassics.com/classic-japanese-motorcycles/suzuki-t500.aspx
