T500'S RACE PROVEN RACE WINNING PERFORMANCE!
1968 T500 Cobra rebuild with slight modifications.
Frame sandblasted and painted with black enamel and gloss clearcoat.
Boge shocks with different springs, swingarm and triple trees with tapered bearings added. Steering damper added as well. I tried the GT750 bars but went with European bars instead. The tubes are GS550 till I get the 72 GT750 ones done.

Rear fender and sandblasted and painted battery box.
European bars and gauges installed. I had to use a later bracket at with the GT500 triple clamps the old style could not be used.
Sand blasted and painted cases.
Suzuki oil dam added to increase oil capacity.
Resealed crank and transmission installed.
Fresh bottom end installed. Also complete GT750 headlight ears and bucket added. Front fender is from late 73 early 74 GT750 and closely resembles the Cobra unit. Due to the narrow GT500 triple clamps the brake backing hubs had to be narrowed to fit the front brake properly. Also the gauge bracket had to be flipped and mounted from the top instead of the bottom to clear the headlight shell.
