Last fall, I received a call from the local Suzuki dealer, wandering if I was interested in a 75 T500 they had. It was in rough shape with locked engine, after looking it over we agreed on $50, when I went to pay, their computer locked up, so they said to just take it ,they would get their money back anyway. When I got the engine open, I found the top end was rusted fast but the bottom end was fine, I did Alan's trick of using diesel fuel in the crank and turning over occasionally, I replaced the top end with new parts, and parts I had, but with the rough condition I decided to clean it up the best I could and make some changes. Out of my bikes, this one draws the most attention when I have it out, it is a fun bike to ride, and I put several 300 mile trips on it without being to uncomfortable.

They didn't get to much money from me on this one, but over the years they got quite a lot of my money, this is actually the fourth bike I got out of their basement, the others were GT185,GT550,T250 scrambler.

That is some dealer. $50 is a snip! But for free?! :shock: My goodness, you must be overjoyed with your thrifty smoker. It looks great now you have smartened it up. :up:

Let me know when you want rid of the 250. I'll make sure you make at least $20 profit! :wink: :up: :lol:

My grandson trying out his bike, he needs to grow a little yet.
When I built the bike I had plans on giving it to him, now I gave it to his dad to enjoy till the little guy is old enough.
Now I will work on getting a title for my GT550.

So somehow the cafe found it's way back to my garage, a month ago I took it for a ride and noticed a lot of smoke out the left pipe, when I checked the transmission oil it was low. So I tried the magic in a bottle (blue devil seal repair) it stopped smoking and gearbox oil isn't dropping. I just don't feel it's a permanent fix, so might tear down this winter.
