There is usually another guy out there as well, but theirs are 4 strokes.

You're missing out on all the fun!

hahhahaha, my new/old school fairings style and other miscellaneous points were finalized about 2 weeks ago, The Dude, (thats really his moniker) the Fiberglass Dude in Akron is supposed to start the construction of the afore mentioned old school stuff in about a week or so he said, and that was about as long ago, so, end result, I'm hoping to be posting photos of my old school badness in a couple weeks if all goes well. then it will be down to the paint yob and assembly and I'll be pimpin' 69 style. Gonna be awesome y0'

BTW, the flat seat pan is gonna look similar to that one above.

I'll shoot a digi when I get off work today and post the updated progress so far. (clubman cafe bars installed and rear stripped)

Cool beans!

I'm wondering if you can feel any flex in the spoked wheels when you wick it up a notch, or will the tires give long before that? What kinda tires are you gonna run on it?

I havent decided on the tires, I am running on vintage tread and I would like to keep it like that, although, there are manufacturers making the vintage tread design so I may do that, vintage but new. I'm not really going to be doing the killer cornering anyway, its being built mainly for a goof off occasional rider type bike. I am keeping the original drum brakes on the front and the spoked rims.
I would think with tire size limited to the width of the rim and style bike, I'll bet the rubber gives before the spokes do. I have watched a few vintage races from back in the day and they haul fast enough for my liking with the skinny tires and spoke combo.

I rode it around last weekend at break neck speeds, this motor is strong and it's a fun bike, I can't wait to get it finished and looking the part.

when its all said and done, including the paint yob, I will have 2.5k in this bike, and it will look like it rolled off the track in 1969.
I bought the 1969 T-500 from a neighbor for $300. in streetable condition. (I have known this bike for 4 years now and have watched it sit in storage and constantly hounded the owner till he caved ) I got lucky and started with a great donor bike for this project and at present, I have completely returned it to stock with all NOS rubber intakes and all. the bike is 37 years old and starts on first kick growls smooth
I am fixing to, when I quit being lazy, am fixing to rebuild the motor to the factory Suzuki race team specs of 69 with the porting and polishing and such, and Jemco is going to make a set of expansion chambers for me when the fairings arrive. its all coming together, its just been a long time in finding the right guy to make the vintage looking fairings and then to agree on the correct period styling. This guy is the guy who made them back in the day and he is going to create mine especially for this build.

I followed that dude around TWS (Texas World Speedway) last year during the last session to time him. He was doing 2:58 lap times. That bike sounds so sweet though!
