    That paint is not an original US issued scheme either, FWIW.

    I might know the owner. I have a co-worker to just upgraded to a GS310. If it was his he did some exploring on the bike. But he also is very methodical in caring for it.

    Yeah, it looks well sorted for a TW200. Didn't mean to imply it wasn't a fair price; just not a "jump on it" sorta deal that sometimes happens with T-dubs. Man, I was <this> close to buying that GS310. Hope he enjoys it!

    '72 Suzuki T500 2 Stroke w/title - $2,500 (Ruidoso)

    $2,500 Firm. Haven’t ridden it in 2 years so time for it to go. Starts and runs great.
    Shows 10,324 miles but it is probably less because the speedometer reads about 20 mph faster than actually going.
    It did go down at some point in its life, pictures included. Will need a new battery, won’t sit for longer than a couple days.
    Have the original seat without original vinyl cover. This is a barn find rebuild, had been sitting for 20 years so lots of new parts

    T500 Titan's are going for pretty strong money these days - that's pretty restorable.
    An original seat pan is good, easy to get reupholstered...
    Reminds me a lot of my X6 Hustler (left side kick, cylinder fins, etc)

    I had a 1970 T500. Bought it for $800 about 10 years ago. Fun bike for back roads. Sold it a few years ago. I probably should have kept it but not enough room in the shed!

    I guess prices have gone up but this one looks kinda crappy for the asking price. Mine was a lot nicer.

    A rebuild?? Did not even change the broken spark plug cap? These small details show so much of the interest of the owner in his bike!!

    2008 honda st1300

    condition: excellent
    engine displacement (CC): 1300
    fuel: gas
    paint color: blue
    street legal
    title status: clean
    transmission: manual
    type: sport touring

    Honda ST 1300, tons of power and torque, low miles 27k, just zipped up to Canada and back never a glitch, unbelievably comfortable w the sergeant seat you can sit on it all day and I was worried about my back problems (original brand new condition seat included) shaft drive so its low maintenance, has automatic windshield, which is very useful. Handles very well, and can go way faster than anybody ought to go. Trouble for me is I like to camp in the woods (mostly to save $) this is not the bike for off road travel and I wish I could afford 2 bikes so I could keep it. Clean title

    it didn't look like any stock Suzuki color, but this pic in the ad might explain the repaint...

    It is too bad he did a half ass fixup on the bike instead of a full restore. Of course you know I like original things and he has just messed this one up badly. It would still be fun however. :bite

    It also has the very rare "Oil chain squiter" which adds thousands to the resale price. :lol3
